After two games at George M. Steinbrenner Field, the Yankees are set for their first road game of spring training. New York will face the Orioles in Sarasota on Tuesday.
As we draw closer to first pitch here at Ed Smith Stadium, here are the starting lineups and some related reading!
New York Yankees
DJ LeMahieu 2B
Aaron Judge RF
Gleyber Torres SS
Luke Voit 1B
Clint Frazier LF
Mike Ford DH
Miguel Andújar 3B
Kyle Higashioka C
Mike Tauchman CF
Jordan Montgomery SP
Yankees manager Aaron Boone revealed this afternoon that Montgomery will likely toss two innings against Baltimore. Right-hander Chad Green was originally supposed to pitch in relief, but he was held back in Tampa in an effort to keep him in more of a controlled environment (throwing live batting practice against other Yankees position players).
New York came up short in their spring opener on Sunday, falling to the Blue Jays. Then, the Yankees won Game 2 against the Tigers. Here's some related reading to get you set for the third game of the spring:

Sine the game doesn't seem to be televised, I'll be posting plenty of video throughout the game. Some here on this article, but also be sure to follow @MaxTGoodman on Twitter for clips.
Clint Frazier put the Yankees on the board with a two-out, two-strike base hit to left. DJ LeMahieu and Gleyber Torres both singled earlier in the frame.
In the bottom of the first, Jordan Montgomery struggled early but settled in. After a leadoff triple from Cedric Mullins, Trey Mancini brought home Baltimore's first run on a sac fly to deep left.
With the bases loaded later in the frame, Montgomery struck out back-to-back hitters to get out of the inning unscathed. We're tied 1-1 entering the second.
Nothing doing in the second. On offense, Mike Tauchman ripped a base hit up the middle, stealing second a few pitches later. LeMahieu ended the inning with a hard line drive to center.
Montgomery looked great in his second inning of work, retiring the Orioles in order.
Yankees score three runs in the top of the third, hitting the ball hard all over the yard. Luke Voit snuck an RBI single through the left side before Mike Ford crushed a double down the right-field line to drive in two more.
Yankees lead 4-1 entering the bottom of the frame.
Most of the Yankees' starters have come out of the game by now since they've all gotten two at-bats on offense. Baltimore was able to bring home one run here to cut the deficit to 4-2. Cedric Mullins (who launched a triple off the wall earlier in this game) had an RBI single to shallow right off Tyler Lyons.
Yankees go down in order in the fifth. Luke Voit popped out in his third AB of the afternoon, slamming his bat on the ground.
All of the starters are out of this game and it's still 4-2 entering the bottom half of the final inning. Spring training games are seven innings long early on this spring.
FINAL: Yankees 4, Orioles 2
