Houston takes on New York's B-Team in a split-squad game today.
The rebel Astros take on the evil empire today in Kissimmee. Barring injury, today's Yankee split squad lineup lacks a single starter on opening day. New York also has a split squad game in Tampa Bay today vs. Toronto. Lucas Harrell will face the "Bronx Bombers lite". Chris Carter will be making his first start in left field; the position Carter is projected to hold down at the start of the season. Today's game marks the start of the CSN Houston era for the Astros; this will be their first televised game on the network.
