Here's tonight's lineup: Brett Gardner CF Robinson Cano 2B Vernon Wells LF Lyle Overbay 1B Ichiro Suzuki RF Jayson Nix SS Chris Nelson 3B David Phelps P Austin Romine C Since that was somewhat depressing, here's some better news on some injured Yankees: David Robertson is ready to return. Ivan Nova is also on his way back from that inflamed right triceps. He will pitch in an extended spring training game and if there are no problems could join the team in Cleveland. In the same NY Post article linked above it was reported that Mark Teixeira will test his right wrist with on-the-field batting practice this Friday. He's already hit off the tee and taken grounders. Curtis Granderson had five at-bats in an extended spring training game. Both are still probably a month away, maybe less. And Francisco Cervelli is going to have his cast removed soon and will resume baseball activities in five weeks. Things are ugly right now as far as the roster goes, but with the Yankees 5 games above .500 I think we all should be pretty happy with where this team is right now. In ticket related news, our ticketing partner TiqIQ now offers Yankees ticket exchange, the official resale marketplace of the New York Yankees to offer you even more deals on Yankees tickets.
