Johnny Damon and Curtis Granderson swapped teams this offseason, and there’s some heavy debate between who will have the better year.
Today marks the first time these two All-Star outfielders will play against each other directly with their new teams. Last time Damon faced New York, he smacked a solo shot off Sergio Mitre and Granderson garnered two hits in his last game against the Tigers.
Should be fun to watch these two go at it today, and I’m definitely looking forward to it this season. Here are the lineups:
|Brandon Inge 3B||Derek Jeter SS|
|Johnny Damon LF||Nick Johnson 1B|
|Magglio Ordonez RF||Jorge Posada C|
|Miguel Cabrera 1B||Alex Rodriguez 3B|
|Carlos Guillen DH||Robinson Cano 2B|
|Don Kelly CF||Nick Swisher RF|
|Gerald Laird C||Curtis Granderson CF|
|Scott Sizemore 2B||Randy Winn LF|
|Adam Everett SS||Francisco Cervelli|
And two fireballers on the mound: A.J. Burnett (0-1, 6.75 ERA) vs. Justin Verlander (1-2, 6.10).
