Game 96 Lineup: Yankees @ Mariners
Lineup vs. Mariners:
RHP Hiroki Kuroda
– If you haven’t heard already (I’m sure you have), the Yankees have traded D.J Mitchell & Danny Farquahr to the Seattle Mariners for Ichiro Suzuki. The Yankees have designated Dewayne Wise for assignment to make room for Suzuki on the roster.
– In other notes, Eduardo Nunez came off the minor league DL today after a 3 month stint.
– If Suzuki performs better than the Yankees expect then the Yankees could re-sign him to a 1 year deal in the off-season, but there’s a catch–no more Nick Swisher at Yankee Stadium.
