Yankees lineup vs. Rays - NYY sign Dominican outfielder Frederick Cuevas

Rich Schultz

The Yankees have now lost four games in a row and now Vidal Nuno is pitching. Will they ever win again?

If you thought the Yankees weren't scoring runs with their best lineup out there, now they will have to do better without Jacoby Ellsbury and Mark Teixeira. The outfielder feels a bit banged up at the moment and Tex actually had his knee drained last night, though he's supposedly going to be fine.

For today, Brett Gardner leads off, Derek Jeter continues to play every single day, and Brian McCann will be hitting third, because why not. Carlos Beltran is batting fourth, Kelly Johnson is "playing" first base, and Alfonso Soriano will keep getting chances to disappoint us all. Ichiro Suzuki, in center field, Brian Roberts, and Yangervis Solarte round out the lineup, proving that today's offense will have one legitimate hitter.

The 2014-2015 international signing period began at 9 am today and the Yankees have been projected to sign a good percentage of the top prospects around the world. Their first announced signing is not one of them, but that will come soon enough. The team has signed outfielder Frederick Cuevas to a $300,000 bonus. At five-foot-eleven, 185 pounds, the 16-year-old doesn't have one standout tool, but has gap power and has performed well in games. He likely fits as a left fielder going forward.
