PREGAME NOTES:

  • Yanks have scored just 7 runs in their last 4 games and are hitting just .172 BA and .176 RISP. Yikes.
  • For just the second time all season, Melky Cabrera is sitting on the bench tonight and Brett Gardner will make the start in CF. Hooray!
  • Luis Mendoza has never faced the Yanks. He is 1-1, 7.59 ERA, 1.59 WHIP in 4 games (2 starts) on the road this season.
    Sidney Ponson is a lifetime 8-2, 4.82 ERA, 1.41 WHIP in 17 games (15 starts) against the Rangers.
  • Rangers' hitters vs. Ponson can be viewed here.
  • Worthy of note: Chad Jennings reports that both Shelley Duncan and Alan Horne have been placed on the 7-day DL. Duncan suffered a separated shoulder on a diving catch last night and could be out for the rest of the season. Horne is suffering from a "tired arm" so it sounds rather minor.
