Girardi will likely have Sanchez hit second in Yanks' lineup

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) The New York Yankees will likely bat power-hitting catcher Gary Sanchez second in their lineup at the start of the season.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Tuesday that he was leaning toward having Brett Gardner bat leadoff, followed by Sanchez, Greg Bird, Matt Holliday and Jacoby Ellsbury.

Girardi said he had been thinking about breaking up the left-handed hitting Gardner and Ellsbury.
