Yankees lineup vs. Blue Jays - Cervelli returns, Murphy optioned to Triple-A; CC Sabathia injury update

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees will hope they can get back to their winning ways in their first game of the homestand. Thankfully, Masahiro Tanaka is pitching today, so their chances are looking pretty good!

Brett Gardner, Derek Jeter, and Jacoby Ellsbury are at the top of the lineup. Mark Teixeira, Brian McCann, and Carlos Beltran are in the middle of the order. Ichiro Suzuki, Brian Roberts, and Kelly Johnson make up the bottom of the lineup. The struggling Yangervis Solarte gets the day off again. You have to wonder if this Solarte Train has come to a screeching end at this point.

Francisco Cervelli has officially been reinstated from the disabled list, as expected. To make room for him on the active roster, John Ryan Murphy was optioned to Triple-A, also as expected. As much as Murphy didn't deserve a demotion, Cervelli is out of options and couldn't be sent to the minors.

Some injury updates on CC Sabathia:

Michael Pineda will start his throwing program on Saturday when he will play catch down in Tampa.

In minor league news, Brian Gordon has been granted his release from the organization. Sad.
