Yankees lineup vs. Blue Jays - NYY scouting David Price; two prospects named to Futures Game

Abelimages

The Yankees will hope that tonight's game brings a better chance for the team to win than last night did.

Brett Gardner, Derek Jeter, and Jacoby Ellsbury are at the top of the batting order. Mark Teixeira bats fourth, while Alfonso Soriano is in against the lefty. Carlos Beltran, Brian McCann, Brian Roberts, and Yangervis Solarte finish out the lineup.

The Yankees have two representatives in the All-Star Futures Game this year. First baseman Peter O`Brien will be representing the US Team while right-handed pitcher Luis Severino will be pitching for the World Team.

After firing Josh Byrnes from his position as general manager, the San Diego Padres are currently starting their search for a replacement. They have asked permission to interview Yankees assistant general manager Billy Eppler.

In preparation for the trade deadline, scouts are flocking to see David Price pitch, who seems to be very much on the trading block for the Rays. The Yankees had more scouts at his last start than normal, though it's unknown how serious they are about trading for the lefty. The organization likely doesn't have the pieces to to pull off such a trade, even if he wasn't on another AL East team, but we'll see what happens in the coming weeks. Just don't get your hopes up.

On the prospect front, Nik Turley has returned to the Triple-A roster after rehabbing from a shoulder injury he suffered in spring training. He was released a few months ago to clear a space on the 40-man roster before re-signing and beginning his rehab. If he proves to be healthy and effective, he could actually be a major league option before we know it.

Slade Heathcott is also out for the remainder of the season. Again:

Injury has always been a problem for him, but this is really the end of any potential trade value he might have been clinging to. He'll be 24 in September so he's really run out of time to show he can stay healthy.
