NEW YORK -- A busy day at the ball yard as Masahiro Tanaka will try to take another step in his elbow rehab by throwing a live BP this morning. A little after noon, the Yankees will honor Hall of Famer Joe Torre by retiring his No. 6 and putting a plaque in Monument Park.
Then at 1:05 p.m., Hiroki Kuroda will have this lineup behind him.
Derek Jeter is being given the day off and Joe Girardi has his lefties stacked for a change.
