Yankees lineup vs. Twins: NYY spoke to Cubs about Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel

Hannah Foslien

The Yankees face the Twins again today and after what they did yesterday, hopefully Minnesota continues to be the solution to the team's offensive woes.

With Brett Gardner out for the day, Jacoby Ellsbury is batting leadoff. Derek Jeter, Brian McCann, and Mark Teixeira follow suit, with Carlos Beltran as the designated hitter. Brian Roberts is at second base with Ichiro Suzuki in right and Alfonso Soriano in left. Zelous Wheeler is back in the lineup at third base, as well.

UPDATE: Brian McCann has been scratched with a sore foot, so here is the new, very different lineup:

There was a rumor going around last night that the Yankees were involved in a three-way trade with the Cubs and Athletics before they ultimately fell out of talks and the deal went through anyway. It turns out, the Yankees did actually discuss both Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel, however the A's were able to outbid what they had to offer – likely Gary Sanchez and Luis Severino – with Addison Russell, a top 10 prospect. So there was no three-way trade. Brian Cashman wasn't necessarily close to a deal, but at least they stayed in the mix.
