Phil Hughes will make his first start of the season today, as the Yankees will take on the Tigers from Comerica Park in Detroit. Hughes was originally going to start for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre today, but the Yankees need arms – David Phelps will become the long-man out of the pen. Manager Joe Girardi will go with the same lineup as yesterday, except Vernon Wells will start in place of Ichiro, and Eduardo Nunez will sit out with a bruised bicep. Here are the lineups for both teams: New York Yankees (1-3) Brett Gardner CF Robinson Cano 2B Kevin Youkilis 3B Travis Hafner DH Vernon Wells LF Brennan Boesch RF Francisco Cervelli C Lyle Overbay 1B Jayson Nix SS RHP Phil Hughes (16-13, 4.23 ERA in ’12) Detroit Tigers (2-2) Austin Jackson CF Torii Hunter RF Miguel Cabrera 3B Prince Fielder 1B Victor Martinez DH Andy Dirks LF Jhonny Peralta SS Alex Avila C Ramon Santiago 2B RHP Max Scherzer (16-7, 3.74 ERA in ’12) Game Time: 4:05 pm EST at Comerica Park – Detroit, MI.
