Yankees mix up lineup against Kazmir

The Yankees face southpaw Scott Kazmir tonight, which has led Joe Girardi to the first change in the top five of the lineup this season. Nick Johnson and Brett Gardner will start the game on the bench, Randy Winn will start in left and Marcus Thames for DH. Lineups via LoHud:

Angels lineup Yankees lineup
Erick Aybar SS Derek Jeter SS
Bobby Abreu RF Nick Swisher RF
Torii Hunter CF Mark Teixeira 1B
Hideki Matsui DH Alex Rodriguez 3B
Kendry Morales 1B Robinson Cano 2B
Howie Kendrick 2B Jorge Posada C
Mike Napoli C Marcus Thames DH
Brandon Wood 3B Curtis Granderson CF
Reggie Willits LF Randy Winn LF

Some notes:

  • It’s Jackie Robinson Day! That means every Yankees will wear No. 42. (Mariano Rivera is the last player wearing the sacred number.)
  • Phil Hughes will make his 2010 debut. He’ll either be a bust, or he’ll shine. Here’s what I think will happen to Hughes if he has a rough start to the year.
  • River Ave. Blues mentioned a lineup change idea that I agreed with regarding Mark Teixeira’s slow start.
