Game Threads (lineup and starting pitchers)
Yankees are facing their old teammate Bartolo Colon in Game 2. This is a must win game for the Yankees if they want to even the series! Here’s the lineup.
RHP Phil Hughes
It’s a brand new series and we’re lucky enough to have our ace CC Sabathia on the mound! Let’s get to the lineups!
Lineup vs. Athletics:
CC Sabathia LHP
– The Yankees have officially placed Joba Chamberlain on the 15-day disabled list. The Yankees called up Preston Claiborne from Triple-AAA Scranton. The Yankees have DFA’d RHP Cody Eppley to make room for Claiborne on the 40-man roster.
– Tonight’s game is the 1,000th game that Joe Girardi will manage. He is 574-425 (.575) in his seven year managerial career.
It’s the series finale for the Yankees and Astros before an off-day tomorrow. Here’s your lineup!
David Phelps RHP
Notes and thoughts:
– Brett Gardner is out of the lineup again. As of right now, we’re speculating it’s a day-off but it’s a little odd. He just had a day-off on Sunday. I thought Gardner had enough offense to play against LHP. Gardner’s a better option than Ben Francisco, you know.
Here is the lineup. We’ll end the lineup post with some notes.
Hiroki Kuroda RHP
– The Yankees placed Kevin Youkilis on the 15-Day Disabled list with a lumbar spine sprain (retroactive to April 28.) The Yankees called up Corban Joseph to take his place on the roster. Why not David Adams? Well, David Adams was released, then re-signed and he’s not on the 40-man roster. He also wouldn’t have been eligible to come to the Majors until May 15, hence making Joseph the obvious choice at this point.
It’s that time of the season where we introduce the newest member of the AL…the Houston Astros. Let’s hope this ends out fun for the Yankees. Here’s your lineup.
Andy Pettitte HLP
Going for the series win! Here we go!
Andy Pettitte LHP
