CLEARWATER — The Yankees will look to add to their modest three-game winning streak on Thursday, taking on the Philadelphia Phillies on the road at BayCare Ballpark.
Let's get right to it! Here are the starting lineups for the afternoon showdown:
New York Yankees
Mike Tauchman CF
Gio Urshela 3B
Luke Voit 1B
Clint Frazier LF
Miguel Andújar DH
Kyle Higashioka C
Tyler Wade SS
Sócrates Brito RF
Thairo Estrada 2B
Deivi García SP
Gio Urshela is making his spring training debut, appearing for the first time since his offseason elbow surgery. He's looked good at full-squad workouts, slowly ramping up his throws from the hot corner. Now, we'll see the defensive wizard at game speed.
Deivi García is also making his spring debut, competing for the fifth spot in the Yankees' starting rotation. Don't expect more than two innings from García as he begins to increase his workload for the regular season next month.
Adam Haseley LF
Rhys Hoskins DH
Scott Kingery CF
Alec Bohm 3B
Odúbel Herrera RF
C.J. Chatham SS
Jeff Mathis C
Nick Maton 2B
Luke Williams 1B
Matt Moore SP
New York won't have to face the likes of Bryce Harper, J.T. Realmuto and old friend Didi Gregorius.

The Yankees went 1-2-3 in the top of the first. Then, Deivi García was one pitch away from a clean first frame of his own before Scott Kingery took him deep to right field. Phillies take a 1-0 lead.
Still nothing doing for New York's offense. Tyler Wade doubled down the line, but Kyle Higashioka (who walked) was thrown out at home plate trying to score from first.
García gives up another home run, this one off the bat of Odúbel Herrera to deep right. Phillies are up 2-0 and García's afternoon is done after two innings of work.
Philadelphia breaks this wide open with a nine-spot in the fourth. Most of the damage was done off Asher Wojciechowski, who didn't make it out of the inning. Albert Abreu came on to finish the inning and also struggled. It's 11-0.
Finishing off the bottom of the seventh, even if the Phillies were winning, Philadelphia extends their lead to 15-0. The Phillies have hit six home runs this afternoon.
FINAL: Phillies 15, Yankees 0.
New York is back in action on Friday afternoon at George M. Steinbrenner Field and will look to bounce back after this performance with Domingo Germán on the mound.
