The Yankees welcome the Texas Rangers to town for the start of a three game series. Game 1 will feature a matchup between initialed lefties C.C. Sabathia and C.J. Wilson. Wilson was scratched from his last start due to food poisoning, so he will be pitching with two extra days of rest. On April 8, Wilson threw seven shutout innings against the Blue Jays. The start was his first since 2005, and snapped a string of 234 consecutive relief appearances.
