The Yankees will have a star-studded disabled list on opening day.
Derek Jeter is expected to join Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson on the DL at the start of the season.
Rodriguez isn't expected back until after the All-Star break following left hip surgery on Jan. 16. Teixeira hasn't ruled out missing the first two months of the season because of a partially torn tendon sheath in his right wrist, while Granderson is expected to be out until the first week of May after breaking his right forearm.
Teixeira has started fielding grounders and doing one arm drills. Granderson caught a few flys during batting practice.
