After losing last night, the Yankees look to take the finale and go for the series win. Shane Greene pitches, having been pushed back one day after Chase Whitley was pushed to the bullpen.

Brett Gardner, Derek Jeter, and Jacoby Ellsbury are the top three, as usual. Carlos Beltran remains the DH, Brian McCann sticks at first base, and Chase Headley is at third. Francisco Cervelli stays behind the plate, while Zelous Wheeler gets his first career start in right field (good luck!), and Brendan Ryan is at second base to round out the lineup.

It was believed that today would be the day the Yankees determined whether Mark Teixeira needed to be placed on the disabled list or not. Given that he was seen taking swings in the batting cage, it appears he will be able to avoid the DL.

Girardi also believes that Carlos Beltran isn’t too far off from returning to the outfield. He estimates that it could take a few weeks of playing catch before Beltran’s elbow is deemed to be in good condition again.

Then again…
