|NY YANKEES: NEW YORK (AP) - Derek Jeter is saying goodbye. Masahiro Tanaka is saying hello.|
Jacoby Ellsbury, Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran are new to the Bronx; David Robertson is new to the closer's role. And Alex Rodriguez is nowhere to be seen.
Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte have retired, and Robinson Cano has moved to Seattle.
After missing the playoffs for only the second time in 19 years, the New York Yankees will look a whole lot different. And for the first time since 1998, they don't have baseball's highest payroll.
''I think it is probably the biggest transition I've been through,'' manager Joe Girardi says.
For only the second time in team history and the first time since 1947, every position on opening day other than the mound will be manned by a different Yankees player on opening day than in New York's previous opener.
New York's forgettable 2013 season began with an 8-2 loss to Boston, with Kevin Youkilis at first, Cano at second, Eduardo Nunez at shortstop, Jayson Nix at third, Francisco Cervelli behind the plate, Vernon Wells in left, Brett Gardner in center and Ichiro Suzuki in right.
The only holdover for Tuesday's opener at Houston figures to be Gardner, who has shifted to left. The rest of the starting lineup figures to have McCann behind the plate, Mark Teixeira at first, Brian Roberts at second, Jeter at shortstop, Kelly Johnson at third, Ellsbury in center and Beltran in right.
CC Sabathia will be the constant on the mound. He's coming off the poorest of his 13 major league seasons at 14-13 with a 4.78 ERA.
''Nobody wants to go through that again,'' he says. ''It sticks with me a lot. Just being disappointed in not being able to help this team win. I feel like if I could have been a little better we might have made the playoffs. I blamed myself for a long time in the offseason and now I'm over it and ready to go this year.
|LA ANGELS: ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton didn't exactly fit in right away with the Los Angeles Angels after they accepted owner Arte Moreno's lavish free-agent contracts.|
Now that both sluggers feel much more comfortable and confident in Orange County, they know it's time the Angels started getting more wins for their money.
The Angels' four-year absence from the playoffs is embarrassing for an organization with a sky-high payroll and equally lofty expectations, but they seem capable of ending the drought if the club's various pieces finally add up properly.
Pujols and Hamilton are full of spring optimism after those disappointing 2013 efforts, while superstar Mike Trout is back for the third full major league campaign in his already remarkable career.

*Yankees-Angels Preview* ========================
By KEVIN CHROUST STATS Writer
New York (16-13) at Los Angeles (15-14), 10:05 p.m. EDT
The New York Yankees are in search of rotation help from within, and the next audition is being given to David Phelps.
The right-hander will try to turn things around for a struggling and banged-up staff Monday night in Los Angeles as the Yankees open a three-game series with the Angels.
The Yankees (16-14) have lost four of five with a 6.49 ERA and .342 opponents' batting average out of their starters after CC Sabathia allowed five runs in 3 2-3 innings of Sunday's 5-1 loss to Tampa Bay.
"We've got some things to work on," pitching coach Larry Rothschild said. "It can turn anytime and we're all thinking that it will."
The Angels (15-15) also had some pitching issues in their latest series, dropping two of three at home against Texas with their rotation allowing 14 earned runs in 14 2-3 innings. Tyler Skaggs gave up six in 2 2-3 innings of Sunday's 14-3 loss.
Phelps (0-0, 3.86 ERA) has made nine appearances out of the bullpen this season, striking out 16 in 11 2-3 innings. In 23 career starts, he's 7-6 with a 4.39 ERA, and he's gone 0-1 with a 3.38 ERA in three career appearances against the Angels.
The greater concern might be Phelps' extended layoff. He hasn't pitched since April 23 because his first scheduled start Wednesday was postponed due to rain.
"He hasn't seen hitters in a while, which is always somewhat of a concern - how he goes out there in that first inning and how sharp he is," manager Joe Girardi told the team's official website.
Derek Jeter will also be in the spotlight in his final regular-season series at Angel Stadium, but the shortstop is likely more concerned with getting his game together. Jeter went 0 for 4 Sunday and stranded four runners to complete a 3-5 homestand at 4 for 30 while going hitless in 13 at-bats.
"I concern myself with how I feel," Jeter said. "I feel good."
His career numbers are about the same against Angels starter Jered Weaver - 6 for 31 - but that's not the only reason Weaver is sad to see him go.
"Obviously he's one of the greatest hitters of all-time, a no-doubt Hall of Famer, the owner of many championships," Weaver told the team's official website. "He's spent 20 years in New York and I've never heard a bad thing about him. He's not only a great ballplayer, he's a very special person."
After a trying start to the season, Weaver (2-2, 4.00) has trimmed his ERA by going 2-0 with a 2.08 ERA in his last three starts. He lasted 5 1-3 innings his last time out, surrendering two runs on eight hits while earning the win in a 6-4 victory over Cleveland.
"Obviously, I would've liked to get deeper in the game," Weaver said. "I made the most of it, and the offense put up some runs."
He could need more against New York, a team he's gone 1-2 with a 9.50 ERA against in his last three starts.
Weaver might expect some production from Albert Pujols, who homered Sunday and is a .365 hitter in 15 games against the Yankees since joining the Angels in 2012. Among American League clubs, he's only been better against Boston (.375) in that time.
Shortstop Erick Aybar, batting .412 in his last 12 games, went 3 for 5 with a home run Sunday and is 3 for 6 with a homer off Phelps.
Rookie first baseman C.J. Cron is 5 for 9 with two RBIs in his first two games with the Angels.
New York first baseman Mark Teixeira is 8 for 23 with four home runs and six RBIs on a six-game hitting streak.
