Curtis Granderson will be in the Opening Day lineup for the New York Yankees when the Yankees open tomorrow against the Detroit Tigers. There was concern that his sore oblique would force him to miss some action.
Mike Mussina will throw out the first pitch. There is no indication that Joe Girardi will consider that as an audition for a starter’s slot.
Here is the expected Yankees Opening Day lineup:
Derek Jeter SS
Nick Swisher RF
Jorge Posada DH
