Yankees lineup and Jesus Montero injured

Otto Greule Jr

Tonight's lineup against the Red Sox has been announced:

Interestingly, this is the same lineup as last night and David Adams continues to play third base, even with Kevin Youkilis back from the disabled list. Adams is getting an opportunity to play, but in the last week he has hit .130/.167/.174 after starting his career off with a hot streak. If he doesn't start hitting again he could be sent down soon.

After a long stretch of hopelessness Vernon Wells looks like he could be coming back to life. Any slump he goes into will bring about talk of whether or not he is crashing down to earth. We'll have to see how he does from here.

In a case of Worst Season Ever, Jesus Montero has a torn meniscus in his left knee and will be out 4-6 weeks to recover from surgery. He had already been sent down to Triple-A last week after struggling mightily in the majors. There is talk that he will be turned into a first baseman, but so far it looks like the Seattle Mariners have gotten the raw end of the Montero-Michael Pineda deal. Pineda is about to start his 30-day rehab assignment and could finally join the Yankees in July.
