No Joba or Phil in spring opener

Some fairly minor news about the upcoming rotation.

Joe Girardi previously indicated that CC Sabathia will start the second game of spring training, not the opener. One of the fifth starter candidates will start that first spring training game on Wednesday.

Today, Girardi said he does not expect Phil Hughes or Joba Chamberlain to start that opener.

“I don’t think it will be Joba or Phil,” he said.

Girardi said the Yankees have mapped out the early spring rotation, but because the players haven’t been told, he’s not ready to announce it. Sounds like either Chad Gaudin, Alfredo Aceves or Sergio Mitre will get that first start.
