Quick notes before heading south

Have to make this one quick because Marc Carig and I are hitting the road to Port Charlotte.

• So far, no word on Francisco Cervelli. He wasn’t in the clubhouse this morning and Joe Girardi won’t address the media until later. Looked like his bag was in his locker, for whatever that’s worth.

• Freddy Garcia will make his first spring start today. Ivan Nova, who’s already started a game, will pitch in relief.

• Phil Hughes, Dave Robertson and Steve Garrison are all scheduled to throw sides today.

• Melky Mesa, Jordan Parraz, Jose Gil, Kyle Higashioka and Austin Romine are the position players who drew the short straws today. Those five are making the long road trip, but they aren’t scheduled to play.

• The Rays have Johnny Damon and Manny Ramirez in their lineup today.

Off the bench for the Yankees: C Gustavo Molina, 1B Jorge Vazquez, 2B Kevin Russo, SS Doug Bernier, 3B Bradley Suttle, LF Greg Golson, CF Austin Krum, RF Daniel Brewer, DH Colin Curtis

Available out of the bullpen: Ivan Nova, Dellin Betances, Adam Warren, Robert Fish, Daniel Turpen, D.J. Mitchell, Eric Wordekemper, Ryan Pope, Andy Sisco and Brian Anderson. The last few on this list are backups, not likely to pitch.
