Yankees lineup against Mets and Andy Pettitte to return from Disabled List

Elsa

Tonight's line up against the Mets and Dillon Gee:

It's good to see David Adams is back in the lineup and Jayson Nix ( and his miraculous .381/.409/.476 over the week) is back on the bench against a right-hander. Unfortunately, Adams has been beaten up by right-handed pitching in his young career. He has a a 195 wRC+ against lefties, but only a 57 wRC+ against righties.

Travis Hafner has hit .167/.286/.222 in the last week and has a 71 wRC+ in the month of May after putting up a 191 wRC+ in April.

It's good to see Ichiro Suzuki gets a day off today when he's hit .318/.348/.409 over the last week in favor of the poor-fielding Brennan Boesch. It probably has to do with the fact that he has 120 wRC+ against lefties, but a minuscule 37 wRC+ against righties.

Meanwhile, Vernon Wells has crashed down to earth with a .091/.091/.091 batting line, which amounts to two hits in the last week.

Robinson Cano and Brett Gardner have gone crazy and hit .318/.444/.318 and .320/.370/.680, respectively, last week.

In an interview with Brian Cashman he talked about David Adams as a true professional in terms of the unfortunate events of his 2013 season. He described him as the "prodigal son that's returned" because of all the time he has missed due to injury, but now that he's healthy he can contribute. Cashman was not too surprised that he has performed so well because that was never a concern as much as his health was. The main takeaway? David Adams is a "true baseball player."

it looks like Andy Pettitte will come off the disabled list on Monday in time for a start against against the Cleveland Indians. He will take the place of Vidal Nuno in the rotation, but it has yet to be seen who will be sent down. It could be Nuno or Ivan Nova, if he doesn't get sent down when Mark Teixeira and Kevin Youkilis come back later in the week.
