Joba Looks to Take Control

The Yankees play the Reds tonight in Tampa tonight at 7:15. The game will be televised on YES. Joba Chamberlain gets the start for the Yankees and he'll be looking to bounce back from his last start when he couldn't find the strike zone.

It was a rough game yesterday for Ian Kennedy, who gave up 5 runs in 2.2 innings pitched as the Yankees lost to the Blue Jays 6-2. More importantly though, Andy Pettitte faced seven hitters and felt good afterwards. Box Score

Brett Gardner continued his big spring as he battles for the center field job. Gardner hit his third home run of the spring and also added a single. Gardner only has nine home runs in his entire minor league career and none in the majors.

Mark Teixeira also enjoyed a 2-hit game and is hitting .500 this spring.

Mariano Rivera threw 30 pitches in the bullpen and expects to pitch in a game next week.
