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* ===========================


Oakland (17-13) at New York (17-11), 1:05 p.m. EDT

After limiting the Oakland Athletics to their fewest hits in a little more than week, the New York Yankees are hoping Andy Pettitte can do even better while bouncing back from a miserable start.

Pettitte will try to help the Yankees finish 8-2 on their homestand while earning his 249th career win Sunday.

Oakland (17-14) had scored 38 runs while batting .272 in its six games before a 4-2 loss at Yankee Stadium on Saturday. After collecting 10 hits in a 2-0 win in Friday's series opener, the A's had four through eight scoreless innings Saturday before getting two in a two-run ninth.

The six hits were the fewest for Oakland since it had three in a 3-0 loss to Baltimore on April 26.

"That's the name of the game, getting hot all together," catcher John Jaso told the team's website. "Get a walk or two in there and a hit. We didn't really do that much."

Lyle Overbay, meanwhile, boosted the injury-plagued Yankees with his third home run in six games. The last three hitters for New York (18-11) were a combined 4 for 9 with two solo homers.

"The bottom of the lineup was excellent. Just an outstanding performance by those guys," manager Joe Girardi said of Overbay, Eduardo Nunez and Chris Stewart.

In his first start against the A's in nearly four years, Pettitte (3-2, 3.86 ERA) will try to rebound from a 9-1 loss to Houston on Monday. After posting a 2.22 ERA in his first four starts, the veteran left-hander gave up seven runs and 10 hits in 4 1-3 innings against his former club.

Pettitte hadn't allowed that many hits since giving up 10 to Boston in a 10-8 loss on Sept. 24, 2010. He also yielded seven runs for the first time since that game.

"All around just a sickening game for me, and a very frustrating game. I'm just looking forward to getting back out there," he said.

Pettitte, who hasn't faced Oakland since July 25, 2009, is 12-7 with a 3.32 ERA in 24 career matchups, including three in the playoffs. He earned his first major league win against the A's on June 7, 1995, and is 7-4 with a 3.02 ERA in 12 home starts against them in his two stints with New York.

The 40-year-old Pettitte will pitch opposite 24-year-old Dan Straily, who is trying to rebound from a miserable effort of his own in his first start against the Yankees. After being called up from the minors for the second time this season, Straily (1-0, 6.35) gave up a career-high six runs over 4 2-3 innings to the Los Angeles Angels on Monday, but he avoided the loss as Oakland rallied late in a 10-8 win in 19 innings.

Vernon Wells is the only Yankees player to have faced Straily, and he hit a two-run homer off the right-hander in a 6-5 loss for the Angels on Sept. 11. Jed Lowrie is the A's only active player to have hit against Pettitte, going 4 for 10 with a home run.
