Yankees lineup vs. Indians: Brett Gardner out with abdominal strain

Jim McIsaac

Brandon McCarthy's debut with the Yankees is hard to get excited for now that we're all waiting to hear about Masahiro Tanaka.

The Yankees have called up Zoilo Almonte to fill out an outfield that has been one man short since Alfonso Soriano was designated for assignment. Zoilo is in tonight's lineup, but no roster move has been made yet. It's been said that the Yankees are currently waiting to hear about Tanaka's MRI results before they make a roster move.

Tonight's lineup has Jacoby Ellsbury leading off with Brian Roberts batting second and Brian McCannt following. Mark Teixeira is at cleanup, Carlos Beltran is the DH, and Ichiro Suzuki is in right field. The lineup is rounded out with Almonte in right, Zelous Wheeler at third, and Brendan Ryan at short.

Brett Gardner is out of the lineup with what was originally believed to be a hernia, but was diagnosed as only an abdominal strain. He hopes to play tomorrow, but I guess we'll see.
