7/10 – Yankees at Angels
Pitching: Joba Chamberlain (4-2, 4.04)
Pitching: Joe Saunders (8-5, 4.44)
FROM THE CLUBHOUSE
Mark Melancon is here, Jonathan Albaladejo is out, and Melancon could be used for up to 45 pitches. Rough travel for Albaladejo, flying from Minneapolis to Southern California only to be shipped back to Scranton … Derek Jeter is DHing after playing 10 straight days in the field. The Yankees had considered doing this in Minnesota but there’s no time like the present … Jose Molina is catching because of the day-night mix and the fact that Jorge Posada played two games on the Metrodome turf. Posada will catch Andy Pettitte Saturday … The Yankees have their fingers crossed that Joba Chamberlain can somehow figure out how to be more aggressive … The Yankees are 9-2 in July and 13-2 in their last 15 games against a left-handed starter.
