Joe Girardi just announced that Andy Pettitte will start Game 2 in Baltimore, and Hiroki Kuroda will start Game 3 in New York.

UPDATE, 4:24 p.m.: Girardi would not announce a roster, but he did say that Jayson Nix is a definite possibility to be on the roster. If Nix is healthy enough to play, I have to think he’ll get that final spot over Andruw Jones. That lets Eduardo Nunez DH against lefties without the Yankees giving up their only utility infielder.

The Yankees won’t announce their roster until they have to turn it in tomorrow. Girardi said weather could play a role. He might change things if tomorrow’s game is rained out and they have to play five days in a row. In that case, I assume they would carry an extra pitcher.
