The first half of the Tigers' split-squad stays in Lakeland to play the Yankees.
Nate Robertson will make his fourth start of the spring. Hopefully, he can rebound from his last outing in which he surrendered 7 runs, 4 of them earned, in just two innings.
Matt DeSalvo takes the mound for the Yankees.
The Tigers will also use Mark Woodyard, Bobby Seay, Eulogio De La Cruz, and Hector Mercado.
The game will be broadcast on Fox Sports Detroit. So, before you settle in for a long day of college basketball, make sure you set aside at least a little time to watch the first televised Tigers game of the year.
