Orioles @ Yankees, New York’s home opener

20140407-113329.jpg

Greetings from the Bronx, where the Orioles will take on the Yankees in their home opener. The O’s are fresh off yesterday’s 3-1 win in Detroit.

*Shortstop J.J. Hardy is not in the lineup as he continues to deal with lingering back spasms.

Hardy said this morning it’s particularly frustrating because this is probably the healthiest Spring Training he’s ever had. He is better today than yesterday and could be used in some capacity, manager Buck Showalter said.

*Johan Santana will throw a two-inning sim game at the team’s spring facility today. As I wrote yesterday, Dylan Bundy is still on for a 30-pitch side and Francisco Peguero will start a hitting progression.

Here are your lineups…
