New York Yankees Spring Training Live Updates at the Philadelphia Phillies
CLEARWATER, Fla. – Exactly a week away from opening day, the Yankees will face the Philadelphia Phillies in game 24 of spring training.
Before these teams shed the light on the Clearwater field, check out Thursday’s starting grid, scheduled pitchers and readings here.

Giancarlo Stanton DH
Hatch to 1B
Gleyber Torres SS
Gio Urshela 3B

Again a line-up one player away from what we’ll see on opening day. Aside from catcher Gary Sánchez, the entire grid made the trip from Tampa fresh after losing to George M. Steinbrenner Field on Wednesday.
Michael King will continue to position himself for a spot on the opening list. With injuries to Zack Britton and Justin Wilson, it is possible that this team could use King early to devour a few innings.
Andrew McCutchen DH
JT Realmuto C.
Bryce Harper RF
Rhys Hoskins 1B
Alec Bohm 3B
Gregory S. didT
Jean Segura 2B
Odubel Herrera CF.

New York’s pitching staff have played the Phillies many times this spring, and this line-up is close to who will also get Philly out of the running on opening day.
Make sure to update this page after starting this game to get the latest version! We’ll have live updates, some videos and analysis after the first pitch and when the runs are scored.
Aaron Judge wipes out his first home run of spring and puts the Yankees 2-0 up. Check out this majestic explosion and clear it all out in the left panel at the BayCare Ballpark.
Michael King couldn’t get out of the first and gave up five two-hit runs (one pair hit and a walk). Didi Gregorius made the inning worse by starting a triple home run.
King came back for the second time – yes, you can do that in spring training – and gave up two more runs. It’s 7-2 in the third frame.
Gleyber Torres smashes the Yankees’ second home run of the day, another ball that left the stadium deep to the left. This came off the bat at an even faster exit speed than Judges Homer with the first inning.
With Jose Alvarado on the hill, the left-hander threw three wild fields so that Luke Voit could score from first base. It’s now a 7-6 game with the Phillies hanging in front.
