Starting for the Yankees – sort of – Dave Robertson
It seems Dave Robertson – and not Sergio Mitre, as we’d guessed – will start the sixth inning for the Yankees. Why Joe Girardi had to keep it top secret is somewhat mysterious; Ron Gardenhire said last night that Brian Duensing is his man. In any event, that’s who it’ll be. Game time for the resumption of play is 5:05 p.m. ET.

- Alfredo Aceves was seen in New York today by team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad for his lower back disc problem. He’ll continue to rehab but will not throw.
