8/27 – Yankees vs. Rangers
Here are the lineups for today’s game at Yankee Stadium as the Yankees try to take two of three from the Rangers. As expected, Jorge Posada (bruised left ring finger) is not in the lineup, but Alex Rodriguez (bruised left toe) is. The Yankees are already working on getting a pad ready for Posada’s finger so he can continue to play.
In other updates, Brett Gardner should hit off a tee today and soft-toss BP will soon follow. He could be ready for rehab Minor League games in five to seven days. Additionally, the Yankees are about to discuss their Sept. 1 callups. Expect to see catcher Francisco Cervelli among them.
