Yankees lineup vs. White Sox - Ichiro is the DH, Michael Pineda injury update

Jonathan Daniel

The Yankees will hope to at least even the series against the White Sox with Masahiro Tanaka in their last game of their week-long stay in Chicago.

The top of the lineup is made up of Brett Gardner, Derek Jeter, and Jacoby Ellsbury. Mark Teixeira, Brian McCann, and, surprisingly, Yangervis Solarte make up the middle of the order. Alfonso Soriano is in right field and has seemingly dropped in the order, thanks to his pretty terrible season so far. Ichiro Suzuki is the designated hitter. Wait, what? And Brian Roberts bats ninth.

The Trenton Thunder have activated Francisco Rondon from the disabled list for the first time this season. He injured his shoulder this spring just before the start of games and has been out of commission ever since. To make room for him, reliever Taylor Garrison has been placed on the DL with the very specific "upper body soreness." That could either mean it's nothing to worry about or it means his shoulder has fallen off.

This is good to hear:

This would allow him to return to the Yankees in the first or second week of June, as long as he doesn't need to go on a rehab assignment afterwards.

In non-Yankees news, the Cubs have apparently signed Manny Ramirez to be a player-coach for their Triple-A team. In case you were wondering, Theo Epstein actually said in the press release that he would not be an option for the major league team, so there's that. At 42, Jason Giambi is the only older player in organized baseball.
