Game 140: Yankees vs. Red Sox

The Yankees begin a crucial four-game set with the Boston Red Sox tonight at the Stadium. While the division may be out of reach, this is still a must-win series, as is practically each one for the remainder of the season. After this, they play the Orioles for three games in Baltimore and then the Bo-Sox again for three games at Fenway. These next 11 games likely will decide the Yankees’ fate, so here’s hoping they win every one! 

Anyway, here are the lineups for tonight…

Some Notes and Transactions:

– Well if you looked at the lineup, Derek Jeter is back. Also R.A. Dickey is on the mound so a word of advice to the Yankees: Keep your hands in because that knuckleball will find a way to hit you.

– This isn’t Yankees news but it’s important to address it: Matt Harvey of the New York Mets had an MRI done at the Hospital of Special Surgery this morning and his MRI results revealed a partial tear in his UCL. He’s going on the DL and will miss some time. I’m wishing Matt Harvey a speedy recovery and hope he returns soon.

Game 130 Lineup: Yankees @ Rays

Alfonso Soriano DH
Curtis Granderson LF
Eduardo Nunez SS
Lyle Overbay 1B

Some Notes and Transactions:

Derek Jeter has the day-off today. If all goes well, he’ll meet the Yankees in Toronto tomorrow for the series vs. the Blue Jays.

– Lyle Overbay feels well enough to play today. He sat out the last two games with a stomach virus. Robinson Cano and Vernon Wells were joking about him.

Cano to Overbay: “You’re getting your color back,”

Wells to Cano: “Whatever color he had,”

– Yesterday I was having a conversation with someone on Twitter about Mark Reynolds possibly being a fit at 3B next year if A-Rod is suspended. Well, it looks like today the Yankees are going to try it out and see for themselves.

– Interesting fact: Mariano Rivera has 36 saves at the Trop in his career. The next player to have the most saves? Jonathan Papelbon (was with the Red Sox at the time) with 10.

Ichiro Suzuki RF
Eduardo Nunez SS
Robinson Cano 2B
Alfonso Soriano LF
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Vernon Wells DH

Some Notes and Transactions:

Brett Gardner‘s X-Ray results came back earlier today and they were clean. Gardner is just having the day off vs. the left hander Price.

Lyle Overbay was still dizzy and nauseous when he entered the clubhouse today. Joe Girardi isn’t sure that he’s going to get in the game tonight.

Derek Jeter will have one more rehab start tonight and then will join the Yankees in Toronto. I’ll be covering Derek Jeter’s rehab start so follow me on Twitter @dfiregirl4 for Jeter updates.

News and Transactions:

– The Yankees have called up LHP David Huff to join the team. In a corresponding move, Dellin Betances has been optioned to Triple-AAA Scranton. Betances gave up four runs on five hits during  Tuesday’s 14-7 victory over the Angels.

Joe Girardi said that it’s unlikely that Derek Jeter will return with the Yankees on Saturday. Girardi does think that Tuesday will be more likely.

David Phelps has been transferred from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL, most likely ending his season if the Yankees don’t make the playoffs.
