TIME: 1:05 p.m.

WEATHER: Clearwater’s not far from Tampa. Temperatures are supposed to be in the 80s over there.

UPDATE, 1:19 p.m.: Here in Tampa, Derek Jeter has singled in his first at-bat back from a calf injury, while over in Clearwater, the Yankees have an early 2-0 lead on Robinson Cano’s two-run double.

UPDATE, 1:26 p.m.: Nova’s struck out three of the last four Twins hitters. He’s breezed through six up, six down in the first two innings. Looks sharp.

UPDATE, 1:38 p.m.: Nine up, nine down for Nova.

UPDATE, 1:59 p.m.: Two-run homer by Willingham in the fifth, and now two singles have put a pair of Twins on base with one out. Meanwhile, Derek Jeter is out of the game for some reason. Could just be because he hadn’t played in a while and Girardi didn’t want to play him more than four innings, but it seems a little odd.

UPDATE, 2:33 p.m.: Derek Jeter just said in the clubhouse that he was scheduled for only three innings today. He’ll play more on Sunday. He experienced no problems today.

UPDATE, 3:09 p.m.: Ivan Nova went 7 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 5 K (76 pitches, 58 strikes). Hiroki Kuroda went 5.2 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K (89 pitches, 59 strikes)
