Pregame Notes:

 Michael Pineda started throwing yesterday after being put on the DL last week with shoulder tendinitis. Although he threw on flat land and felt fine afterward, there is no rehab plan for him according to Joe Girardi

 This is CC Sabathia’s 4th consecutive Opening Day start for the Yankees which makes him the 9th pitcher in Yankees history to have 4 consecutive Opening Day starts.
