KEY GAME INFORMATION
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.
MINNESOTA: HITTING: OF BEN REVERE's slap-and-run style fits well in spacious Target Field. He will compete with lefty Chris Parmelee for the starting RF job. OF DENARD SPAN should be over his concussion problems. He works the count well as a steady presence near the top of the order. C JOE MAUER will see more time at first in an attempt to keep him healthy. Offensively, he'll be limited by a pitcher-friendly home park and no support in the lineup. RYAN DOUMIT has a chance to play regularly and stay healthy as a full-time DH and/or backing up Mauer behind the dish. 1B JUSTIN MORNEAU's concussion symptoms came back late last year. It's a bad omen. OF JOSH WILLINGHAM is being relied on to produce runs, but he's going from one pitcher-friendly home park (Oakland) to another. 3B DANNY VALENCIA showed enough power in 2011 to secure an everyday job heading into 2012. Newly signed SS JAMEY CARROLL has done a nice job off the bench, but hasn't been tested in an everyday role. If hamstring problems are still holding him back, 2B ALEXI CASILLA has won the second-base job ahead of disappointing import TSUYOSHI NISHIOKA, who will start the year in the minors.
STARTING PITCHING: Who would have thought CARL PAVANO would emerge as the picture of consistency and durability? While he's far from a star, the veteran continues to be a rock for Minnesota, throwing strikes and eating innings. SCOTT BAKER got hurt again last year. If he could ever stay healthy, he's the prototype for success at Target Field'lots of strikeouts, few walks, lots of flyouts. The FRANCISCO LIRIANO rollercoaster nosedived again last year. The Twins have gotten so desperate to keep him healthy that they actually let him pitch more over the offseason. He's obviously a huge risk again. BRIAN DUENSING, NICK BLACKBURN and JASON MARQUIS are all the definition of fifth starter. They serve it up, give up a lot of hard-hit balls, and hope they get hit right at their defenders. If Duensing and Blackburn falter, ANTHONY SWARZAK probably pitched well enough last year to get a shot in the rotation. LIAM HENDRICKS, one of the organization's better prospects, would be a slightly more exciting option.
RELIEF PITCHING: Despite his underwhelming performance last year, MATT CAPPS will pitch the ninth inning again because of his 'closer's experience.' He figures to be on an undeservedly long leash. GLEN PERKINS certainly proved he deserves to close. He was Minnesota's best reliever in his first full season in the 'pen. His velocity was up as a short reliever, and the lefty was truly overpowering. If things go sour for the Twins again this season (and it seems likely they will), perhaps they'll get serious about Perkins later this year.
PREVIEW
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ PA SPORTSTICKER AL PREVIEW (NY YANKEES-MINNESOTA) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*Yankees-Twins Preview* =======================

New York (42-39) at Minnesota (36-42), 8:10 p.m. EDT

The New York Yankees have ended their second five-game slide of the season, but they haven't had much success lately when Phil Hughes has been on the mound.

The Minnesota Twins, meanwhile, rarely lose when Samuel Deduno pitches at home.

This matchup of right-handers could help the Twins even this four-game set Tuesday night, as Deduno looks to improve to 4-0 at Target Field this year.

New York (43-39) avoided its first six-game skid in six seasons by scoring seven times over the final two innings to rally for a 10-4 victory in Monday's opener. The Yankees totaled 13 runs during their losing streak but Robinson Cano homered twice and Zoilo Almonte added three hits including clutch RBI singles in the eighth and ninth innings.

"We're not that team anymore that we used to have the guys that we could say, 'This guy might hit two home runs in the next inning,'" Cano said. "So we've just got to take advantage when we get men on base."

New York entered the day with the AL's third-worst average with runners in scoring position at .236 and went 4 for 16.

The Yankees have dropped seven of Hughes' last eight outings, and he's 1-5 with a 5.19 ERA in that span.

Hughes (3-7, 4.82 ERA) took a step in the right direction Thursday by limiting Texas to two runs over eight innings in a 2-0 defeat. That continued a trend in which he has received no runs of support over his last three outings.

He is 3-1 with a 2.56 ERA in five career starts against the Twins, including one in the postseason. He has limited Joe Mauer to four hits in 16 at-bats and Justin Morneau to two in 10 overall.

The Yankees will try to solve Minnesota's best starter in Deduno (4-2, 3.32), who improved to 3-0 with a 1.71 ERA in three home starts by yielding one run over seven innings Thursday in a 3-1 victory over Kansas City.

"When you are ahead of the count, you can make pitches and everything was working," Deduno told the Twins' official website after throwing 60 of 87 pitches for strikes.

Deduno is 7-1 with a 2.59 ERA in 10 career starts at Target Field, with Minnesota (36-43) winning eight of them.

Deduno's lone career start against New York on Sept. 26 was cut short after he recorded five outs due to irritation in his left eye.

Mauer figures to be back in the lineup to try to break an 0-for-16 slide. He did not start Monday after coming to the ballpark feeling under the weather.

The situation is murkier for Josh Willingham, scratched Monday due to discomfort in his left knee. He is scheduled to have an MRI on Tuesday.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi finally notched his 600th career victory and hopes that Monday's strong finish will help his team get on a roll.

"You hope that the hard work that they've been putting in starts to pay off," Girardi said. "Maybe this is the start of something."

These pitching staffs have both issued 211 walks to tie for the AL's second-lowest total.
