Game 96 Lineup: Yankees @ Red Sox

Did everyone enjoy the All-Star Break? I did...and now I'm wishing for it back. Anyway, here's the lineup

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

LHP Andy Pettitte


-- Apparently one week wasn't enough. The Yankees put Derek Jeter back on the DL with a Grade 1 quad strain. To make room on the roster, Yankees purchased the Major League contract of Brent Lillibridge and brought him up. A 40-man roster move is pending.

-- Alex Rodriguez went 1-for-4 last night with Scranton. The one hit as a 2-run HR. A-Rod is expected to return to the Yankees on Monday, when the Yanks play the Texas Rangers in--Texas.

-- Yesterday, Brett Gardner was the recipient of the 2013 Yankees 'Heart and Hustle Award'. In other words, the award was practically given to him because no one else on the team hustles like him.
