Lineup vs. Pirates, list of early cuts

The Yankees will play the Pirates at 1:05 p.m. today on the MLB Network. Here's the lineup:

Derek Jeter SS
Nick Johnson 1B
Robinson Cano 2B
Nick Swisher RF
Marcus Thames LF
Brett Gardner CF
Randy Winn DH
Francisco Cervelli C
Jorge Vazquez 3B

Note: Joe Girardi reiterated that Nick Johnson fits the role of a high on-base guy to hit second in the lineup. I've already said to chalk up this debate.

In other news, George Steinbrenner is expected to attend the home opener at Yankee Stadium to witness the championship ceremony.

Here's a list of the first set of cuts from Girardi (also via LoHud):

RHP Andrew Brackman
RHP D.J. Mitchell
RHP Christian Garcia
RHP Kevin Whelan
LHP Wilkins Arias
LHP Kei Igawa
LHP Wilkin De La Rosa
LHP Jeremy Bleich
C Kyle Higashioka
