RHP Kyle Kendrick (0-2, 9.00)

TIME/TV: 1:05 p.m., ESPN

WEATHER: Bright and sunny. Temperatures in the 70s. Little bit of wind blowing from right to left.

UMPIRES: HP Phil Cuzzi, 1B Eric Cooper, 2B Dan Iassogna, 3B Chad Whitson

UNFAIR ADVANTAGE: The Phillies are letting the Yankees play with a designated hitter today, but they’re choosing not to. Philadelphia starter Kyle Kendrick will hit in the No. 9 hole.

FIRST TIMER: Boone Logan is scheduled to make his first appearance of the spring. He’s been bothered by a sore elbow, but the Yankees still believe he has time to be ready for Opening Day. Cody Eppley, Joba Chamberlain, Jim Miller, David Aardsma and Shawn Kelley also made the trip.

WHAT TO WATCH: It seems the news of the day has already happened with Derek Jeter being scratched from the lineup. … Adam Warren has the start. He could still make the big league roster as a long relieverĀ if Phil Hughes isn’t ready and both David Phelps and Ivan Nova move into the rotation. … Another test for Ronnier Mustelier, who said his legs feel better following last week’s run-in with a railing. The Yankees are still looking at him as an alternative at third base.

JUST A HEADS UP: I’m working on uploading some video of Derek Jeter talking about his ankle and being scratched from the lineup. I’ll put that video in a post on top of the usual game post. Honestly, with all the Jeter stuff to write, I doubt I’ll have time to update the game post very much anyway. Once the video is uploaded and ready, let’s just move the game conversation to that post.
