Yankees lineup vs. Orioles - CC Sabathia prepares for his rehab assignment

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

After an amazing win last night, the Yankees will have to figure out how to win again with Vidal Nuno on the mound.

Brett Gardner, Derek Jeter, and Jacoby Ellsbury remain at the top of the lineup. Mark Texieira bats cleanup with last night's hero Carlos Beltran continuing to DH. Kelly Johnson plays third base with Yangervis Solarte out of the lineup again, though Brian Roberts stays in at second. Ichiro Suzuki is in right field and Francisco Cervelli is behind the plate, giving Brian McCann a day off after a night game.

CC Sabathia will soon begin his rehab assignment:

By Saturday, I'm assuming next Saturday. If it takes him five starts/appearances to complete his rehab, that will take him right to the end of July/beginning of August, as it was initially reported. CC hopes it will take fewer than five, but let's not get too carried away just yet. Since he is due back around the trade deadline, it might make things a little difficult for the Yankees–do they make a move, do they wait for CC?–but can they afford to let Vidal Nuno make another five-to-six starts? And does CC actually offer an upgrade at this point?
