Happy 21st Birthday

To Yankees left hander and #1 prospect Manny Banuelos.

Spring Training 3/13/12

Eduardo Nunez was scratched today after feeling more pain in his hand, he was expected to return to the lineup tonight when the Yankees and Red Sox renew their rivalry. He asked the Yankees if he could play through the pain but the Yankees quickly said no. No need in rushing him back, especially this early in spring.

Ivan Nova starts the game tonight against Boston so hopefully his command comes with him this time around. Mariano Rivera is scheduled to pitch his second inning of the spring tonight against the Sox so expect him to come in the game in the 4th or 5th inning tonight.

I will post the lineup when it is updated with the Nunez scratch. Doug Bernier is slated to start at SS for Nunez tonight and probably bat 9th but I do not want to guess at it.
