Are you ready for some baseball?

The Phillies are set to kick-off Grapefruit league action today against the Yankees. Here's your lineup:

1. Pete Orr, 2B
2. Ross Gload, DH
3. Raul Ibanez, LF
4. Ryan Howard, 1B
5. Ben Francisco, CF
6. Domonic Brown, RF
7. Jeff Larish, 3B
8. Brian Schneider, C
9. Wilson Valdez, SS

Once again, no Jimmy Rollins or Chase Utley. Charlie Manuel said Rollins was scratched because he missed the last two days of workouts. He'll be in the lineup against the Yankees tomorrow.

Utley continues to sit out with "soreness" in his legs and knees. The organization doesn't seem concerned, but Phillies fans certainly are. Utley's had difficulty staying healthy the last few seasons, and the team needs a bounce back year from him. Manuel will look to get Utley into a game this week.

Today's game is being broadcast on the MLB network and on MLB.TV. The Phillies are a featured team on MLB.TV this season. Right now, they're scheduled for 17 games to broadcast online, including both games this weekend.
