Reimold batting leadoff (Yankees lineup and notes)

SARASOTA, Fla. - Nolan Reimold is starting in left field and batting leadoff today against the New York Yankees.

Reimold also played yesterday in Dunedin, going 0-for-3.

Brian Roberts moves down to second in the order. Nick Markakis will be the designated hitter again, with Conor Jackson getting the start in right field.

Manager Buck Showalter has plenty of outfield candidates, and he’s using these early games to critique them.

For the Orioles:
Nolan Reimold LF
Brian Roberts 2B
Nick Markakis DH
Adam Jones CF
Matt Wieters C
J.J. Hardy SS
Chris Davis 1B

Notes: Miguel Gonzalez said he will throw batting practice on Tuesday, but he won’t make his 2013 Grapefruit League debut until March 3. He could pitch at Twin Lakes Park before that date.

Tsuyoshi Wada is scheduled to throw off a regular mound today after three sessions off a half mound last week.
