The Blue Jays host the Yankees today, and it is on Sportsnet.

The Yankees lineup has a bunch of players that were great in 2008 and a handful of prospects, with Esmil Rogers pitching. And we get our first chance to see ARod since his suspension. It should an interesting season for the Yankees.

On our side, I'm mostly interested to watch Daniel Norris, since there is a rotation spot waiting for him. A lot is riding on the left arm of the world's most interesting man.

We also get another chance to watch Devon Travis at second base. I'm starting to think that Alex is leaning towards giving him the job at second base. He has been hitting lately.At the moment hit spring line is .261/.292/.304, which, considering he didn't have a hit in his first 5 games, is pretty good. Maicer Izturis is .000/.222/.000 on Baseball Reference (.091/.231/.182 on MLB). He has 2 more at bats, in the same number of games, credited on MLB.com, I don't know which one is right. I have noticed a number of errors in the GameDay boxscores. Perhaps one of the site has corrected the errors.
