KEY GAME INFORMATION
OAKLAND: HITTING: 2B JEMILE WEEKS may not be a legitimate .300 hitter, but he's still the best option they have at the leadoff spot. C KURT SUZUKI seemingly hits as many line outs as anyone in baseball. He has a solid bat for a catcher and qualifies as a middle-of-the-order option in Oakland. OF JOSH REDDICK is more of a line-drive hitter than a 25-HR guy, and he doesn't yet have the plate discipline to approach .300. 1B BRANDON ALLEN is an all-or-nothing hitter, but his potential for much-needed power should be enough for him to beat out DARIC BARTON. SS CLIFF PENNINGTON has quietly developed into a serviceable regular. With 3B SCOTT SIZEMORE out for the season with a torn ACL, either ERIC SOGARD or JOSH DONALDSON will win the job at third base. Neither player has reached 80 career at-bats yet. Highly-coveted Cuban OF YOENIS CESPEDES inked a four-year deal with Oakland, and will be expected to produced in the heart of the lineup immediately. OF COLLIN COWGILL is undersized, but has shown impressive power in the minors. The DH spot will fall to Allen when Barton is in the lineup. When he's not, it will be filled by such Quadruple-A types as KILA KA'AIHUE and CHRIS CARTER.
STARTING PITCHING: BRANDON McCARTHY reclamation project worked out nicely. He's an injury risk, but when healthy he's one of baseball's better middle-of-the-rotation arms. BARTOLO COLON pitched better than expected with the Yankees last year (7.4 K/9, 4.00 ERA), and should perform just as well in his new spacious ballpark. DALLAS BRADEN (shoulder) and BRETT ANDERSON (elbow) are both question marks after major surgeries. Braden's return date has been pushed back to early May, while Anderson will might not take the hill until June. The jewel of the Trevor Cahill trade, hard-throwing righty JARROD PARKER has a chance to make a big impact if his arm is recovered from 2009 Tommy John surgery. The Gio Gonzalez trade landed Oakland TOMMY MILONE and BRAD PEACOCK, both of whom are coming off impressive minor-league seasons. They'll compete for rotation spots this spring. TYSON ROSS could get a few starts, but he's gotten very hittable over the past year. They're in no hurry to start the arbitration clock of top prospect SONNY GRAY, but he should make some late-season starts.
RELIEF PITCHING: With Andrew Bailey gone, righty GRANT BALFOUR (2.47 ERA, 1.03 WHIP) will get the first chance to close games. Though his occasional bouts with command issues make him a risk. If Balfour falters, BRIAN FUENTES will get the next look because of his ninth-inning experience and strong second half of 2011 . . . Long a favorite inside the organization, injury-prone righty JOEY DEVINE has long been considered a future closer and should get some late-innings duties. The highest upside option for a future closer is 25-year-old righty FAUTINO DE LOS SANTOS. He has overpowering stuff but his command comes and goes.
NY YANKEES: HITTING: Despite his decline from mediocrity into downright counter-productivity, SS DEREK JETER gets to hit atop the best lineup in baseball. Off an MVP-caliber season, OF CURTIS GRANDERSON is a true star. His average is mediocre, but his power is elite and the Yankees are letting him run when on base. After two years with a sub-.260 average, 1B MARK TEIXEIRA's talent seems to be fading. He still puts up huge power numbers playing in a bandbox. Coming off knee and thumb injuries, 3B ALEX RODRIGUEZ is a serious injury risk hitting in the middle of this lineup. 2B ROBINSON CANO will once again see as many RBI chances as anyone. He's been great in those situations the past two seasons. OFs NICK SWISHER and BRETT GARDNER offer power and SBs, respectively, though the Yankees may look to upgrade if they continue to post lackluster numbers. C RUSSELL MARTIN will get plenty of playing time now that Jesus Montero is in Seattle. Veteran slugger RAUL IBANEZ is the new DH in town, and will love hitting towards the short porch in right at Yankee Stadium.
STARTING PITCHING: CC SABATHIA struggled late last year and has logged a ridiculous number of innings over the past five years. He's a top-10 starter in the majors, but is starting to pass his prime. Newcomers HIROKI KURODA and MICHAEL PINEDA will both stabilize what was a shaky rotation last year. Kuroda, 37, posted a 3.07 ERA with the Dodgers and the 23-year-old Pineda has unlimited upside, fanning 173 batters in 171 innings with Seattle last season. IVAN NOVA benefitted from nearly nine runs of support per game. He keeps the ball down often enough to thrive in the Bronx, just without many strikeouts. PHIL HUGHES' stuff has regressed greatly since his days as a top prospect. He's trying to overcome conditioning problems this offseason. MANNY BANUELOS and DELLIN BETANCES are great prospects who may get a chance to start MLB games later this season.
RELIEF PITCHING: Trust MARIANO RIVERA to stay dominant until proven wrong. He was better in 2011 than he was in 2010 despite some velocity slippage. DAVID ROBERTSON has a firm hold on eighth-inning duties after an All-Star season. He's second in line for saves. RAFAEL SORIANO wasn't a total bust, as he did just fine after a rough April. He's settled into the seventh-inning role since Robertson is more trusted that he is. After Tommy John surgery, JOBA CHAMBERLAIN is aiming to be back this June. Middle reliever CORY WADE was reliable last year, and has a chance to rack up some vulture wins if he keeps going strong.

*Athletics-Yankees Preview* ===========================

By JEFF MEZYDLO STATS Senior Writer

Oakland (16-13) at New York (17-10), 1:05 p.m. EDT

Bartolo Colon is off to a solid start in his return to the Oakland Athletics.

However, he didn't fare well in two outings versus New York since his one season with the Yankees in 2011.

Making his first start at Yankee Stadium since leaving the Bronx, the veteran right-hander looks to start 4-0 while trying to end his recent struggles against one of his many former teams Saturday.

Colon (3-0, 3.38 ERA) went 8-10 with a 4.00 ERA in 29 games - 26 starts - for New York in 2011. Oakland then signed him prior to the 2012 season and he went 10-9 with 3.43 ERA in 24 starts before he was suspended 50 games for testing positive for testosterone in August.

Though Colon enjoyed a solid season in 2012, he went 0-1 with a 7.11 ERA in two home starts against the Yankees.

Oakland (17-13) hopes that changes as it tries to improve to 6-0 with him on the mound. Colon, who turns 40 later this month, also looks for a better effort after he posted season highs with five runs and nine hits in six innings of a 9-8, 10-inning win over Baltimore on Sunday.

A.J. Griffin pitched seven solid innings to outduel CC Sabathia on Friday, and Jed Lowrie and Nate Freiman each had three hits as the A's won for the fourth time in five games, 2-0.

"It doesn't really matter what else goes on when you get seven shutout innings from your starter in this ballpark and you've got a fresh bullpen behind you," Oakland manager Bob Melvin told MLB's official website.

Lowrie, who has posted consecutive three-hit road games, is batting .341 in 14 career contests at Yankee Stadium.

Grant Balfour got the final out for his fourth save of the season and 23rd in a row, including the playoffs, since blowing one April 29, 2012.

Brett Gardner and Jayson Nix each had two hits for New York (17-11), which dropped to 6-2 on a 10-game homestand.

"You're not going to be able to get them every night," New York outfielder Vernon Wells said. "I think you just want guys to try to have good at-bats. Sometimes the outcome is out of your hands, but it's just guys continuing to keep the same approach. We'll continue doing that day in and day out."

New York's Robinson Cano is batting .322 this season and .429 (6 for 14) with two doubles and a homer versus Colon. Teammate Ichiro Suzuki is 6 for 13 in the last three games and hitting .341 with two home runs against him.

Phil Hughes (0-2, 4.67) will try a sixth time to earn his first win when he takes the mound for the Yankees on Saturday. The right-hander has allowed two runs in three straight starts, most recently Sunday over six innings when he struck out a season-high nine in a 3-2 win over Toronto.

Hughes, who is 2-1 with a 6.00 ERA in five starts versus Oakland, has allowed 13 runs and 16 hits in seven innings without a decision in his last two against the A's at Yankee Stadium.

With seventh-inning specialist Joba Chamberlain already on the disabled list with a strained oblique, the Yankees also are minus setup man David Robertson for this series because of a leg injury.
