Justin Maxwell will join the Yankees today

The Yankees’ team bus ought to be fuming across the state of Florida right now, and one of the players on it is former Nationals outfielder, Olney native and Maryland alum Justin Maxwell. The Nationals traded Maxwell this winter shortly after designating for assignment, and this will be their first look at him since.

The game, which starts at 1 p.m., is on MASN. Here are the lineups:


1. Roger Bernadina, CF

2. Ian Desmond, SS

3. Ryan Zimmerman, 3B

4. Adam LaRoche, 1B

5. Michael Morse, LF

6. Wilson Ramos, C

7. Rick Ankiel, DH

8. Laynce Nix, RF

9. Danny Espinisa, 2B

-- John Lannan, SP


1. Brett Gardner, CF

2. Eduardo Nunez, SS

3. Russell Martin, C

4. Robinson Cano, 2B

5. Jesus Montero, DH

6. Jorge Vazquez, 1B

7. Ramiro Pena, 3B

8. Justin Maxwell, LF

9. Melky Mesa, RF

-- A.J. Burnett, SP

One note: Later today, we’re changing over our blog software. I expect things to run smoothly for the most, but if there are any delays/glitches, that’s why.
