Now for some news + notes…

- Surprise! Alex Rodriguez has been suspended. However, as you can tell, he will appeal and likely play out the remainder of the season, should he stay healthy. The best us Yankees fans can do is just hope he plays well and isn’t too much of a circus after tonight.

- Word just broke that Derek Jeter is going back on the disabled list with a Grade 1 calf strain. This will be his third DL stint of 2013, as yesterday Jeter himself called this season “a nightmare”. Ironically, activating A-Rod will be the corresponding roster move.

- To a somewhat random degree, Brent Lillibridge has been designated for assignment, and David Adams has been called up.

- And finally, the Chicago Cubs claimed Thomas Neal off waivers from the Yankees today. He had two stints with the team this year for a grand total of four games, picking up 2 hits in 13 plate appearances. Happy trails.

Game 109 Lineup: Yankees @ Padres

Well…let’s try this again. Here’s today’s lineup. 

Brett Gardner CF
Robinson Cano 2B
Alfonso Soriano LF
Curtis Granderson RF
Lyle Overbay 1B
Eduardo Nunez SS
Brent Lillibridge 3B
Chris Stewart C
Ivan Nova RHP

Some Notes:

Derek Jeter has been scratched from the lineup and will not play for the next two days. Girardi said that if there were a DH then Jeter could have played.

David Phelps has been scratched from his start in Trenton due to elbow soreness. He’s slated to get tests done.

Game 108 Lineup: Yankees @ Padres

It’s a brand new series and this game is a chance for CC to start the game on the right foot. Here’s the lineup!

Brett Gardner CF
Derek Jeter SS
Robinson Cano 2B
Lyle Overbay 1B
Curtis Granderson LF
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Eduardo Nunez 3B
Chris Stewart C
CC Sabathia P

Some Notes:

– To make room for Curtis Granderson on the roster, the Yankees have sent Melky Mesa down to the minors and have designated Thomas Neal for assignment.

– Major League Baseball has announced that they will reveal the suspended players no later than Monday. Alex Rodriguez will face a suspension while Francisco Cervelli could also be punished.

Game 107 Lineup: Yankees @ Dodgers

Here’s the final game of the 2 game set with our ace (and former Dodger) Hiroki Kuroda on the mound. Here is the lineup!

Brett Gardner CF
Derek Jeter SS
Robinson Cano 2B
Alfonso Soriano LF
Vernon Wells RF
Brent Lillibridge 1B
Jayson Nix 3B

Game 105 Lineup: Rays vs. Yankees

Well guess who’s back…again. Jeter’s back…again. Let’s hope he doesn’t injure himself…again. Anywhere, here’s the lineup…again! 

Brett Gardner CF
Derek Jeter SS
Robinson Cano 2B
Alfonso Soriano LF
Vernon Wells DH
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Brent Lillibridge 3B
David Adams 1B
Chris Stewart C

Phil Hughes RHP

Some Notes:

Jayson Nix was in the clubhouse today but he’s not being activated. Instead, he’s hoping to be activated Tuesday when the Yankees go to play the L.A. Dodgers.

– Nix also spoke about Curtis Granderson. Granderson is almost ready to come back to the majors and play some games according to Nix.

David Phelps was also in the clubhouse today. No word on when he returns.

Game 104 Lineup: Rays vs. Yankees

Well, last night didn’t work out as well as we wanted it to. Anyway, here’s today’s lineup. 

Brett Gardner CF
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Robinson Cano 2B
Alfonso Soriano DH
Lyle Overbay 1B
Vernon Wells LF
Eduardo Nunez SS
Brent Lillibridge 3B
Chris Stewart C

RHP Ivan Nova

Some Notes:

Travis Hafner is going for an MRI on his shoulder. Maybe that explains his three month slump.

CC Sabathia and Hiroki Kuroda took batting practice to prepare for the upcoming west coast swing. CC hit a HR during BP. Now if someone could actually do that during a game, that would be sweet.

Derek Jeter will do a simulated game today and he could return to the lineup as soon as tomorrow.

Game 103 Lineup: Rays vs. Yankees

Here is your starting lineup!

Brett Gardner CF
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Robinson Cano 2B
Alfonso Soriano LF
Lyle Overbay 1B
Travis Hafner DH
Eduardo Nunez SS
Brent Lillibridge 3B
Austin Romine C

CC Sabathia LHP

Some Notes:

Derek Jeter will run the bases again today and will get checked out by a doctor before tomorrow’s game. If he’s cleared he can play tomorrow afternoon.

– The Yankees (obviously by the lineup) traded for Alfonso Soriano from the Cubs. The Yankees sent RHP Corey Black (who was in A-Ball) over to Chicago.

Now for some news + notes…

- Curtis Granderson (broken pinky) is set to begin a rehab assignment tomorrow with the High-A Tampa Yankees. Jayson Nix (oblique) played five innings at third base today with them, going 0-2. It is believed both will return soon.

- Outfielder Alfonso Soriano was is not in the Cubs’ lineup tonight in an effort to “clear his head”, amid all the trade rumors. The Yankees are still trying to work out a trade for their former second baseman, and it appears Soriano is willing to return to New York should a deal go down. When asked if he would use his no-trade clause to prevent being dealt to the Yanks, Sori said, “No, no, no, no.” Chicago reporters are putting the chances of a deal happening at 75%.

- Finally, as it is too big of a story to ignore, here is a statement from Yankees GM Brian Cashman on the latest news regarding Alex Rodriguez.
