Yankees lineup vs. Rays; Jeter back at shortstop, Nix to be activated Tuesday

Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE

Guess who's back, back again?

Derek Jeter is back. Let us hope that his stay will be a little bit longer than last time and not so reminiscent of Juan Gonzalez's final season in the majors.

In other Yankees-getting-healthy news, utilityman Jayson Nix says that the plan is for him to be activated prior to Tuesday night's game in L.A. against the Dodgers. Nix also said that Curtis Granderson was making strides in his rehab and taking swings, so hopefully he will also be ready soon.

WFAN's Sweeny Murti reported that injured starter David Phelps will be making another rehab start with the Trenton Thunder on Tuesday, so he's on the way soon as well, barring any setbacks. (Knowing 2013 though, those last three words are a death knell, so tread carefully, David.) He will throw five innings or 75 pitches.

Also, because it is Hideki Matsui Day...

Damn classy.
