In their only spring meeting, both teams are expected to field something close to their regular lineup, although Manny Ramirez will not be making the trip to Tampa.
Colon should pitch no more than three innings and be followed by Julian Tavarez and Javier Lopez. Pettitte skipped his last start with a mild left forearm strain and is scheduled to throw 60 pitches.
The two teams meet for the first time during the season on April 11.
