PREGAME NOTES:

Here's a strange stat - including yesterday's 8-2 victory over the Angels, the Yanks are now 6-1 on the season after being shutout the previous game.

John Lackey is a lifetime 4-7, 4.81 ERA, 1.54 WHIP in 13 starts against the Yanks. But he is 3-2, 3.09 ERA, 1.48 WHIP in his last 7 starts against them.

Darrell Rasner has never faced the Angels. He is 3-3, 3.80 ERA, 1.41 WHIP in 7 starts at the Stadium this season.

Angels' hitters vs. Rasner can be viewed here. Yanks' hitters vs. Lackey can be viewed here.

CANO REMAINS OUT: Robinson Cano is again out of the lineup today with a bruised hand he suffered from a swing last Sunday night against the Red Sox. He hopes to return to action tomorrow night against the Texas Rangers in Arlington.

KENNEDY START: For those of you interested, Ian Kennedy is expected to start today for Scranton and figures to be the first option to replace either Darrell Rasner or Sidney Ponson in the rotation if and when the Yanks decide to make a change. His past three starts: 20.0 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 14 K
