Lineups -

NYY: GGBG, Jeets, Grandy, Tex, Cano, Swish, Chavez (3B), Jo-Po (DH), Russell

MIN: Revere, Plouffe, Mauer (C), Morneau, Kubel (DH), Valencia, Tosoni, Hughes, Nishioka

Phil Hughes is 3-3 with a 4.28 ERA since returning from the DL on July 7th. He's made just one career start against Minnesota, back in May of 2009, and allowed three earned runs in five frames.

Slowey has missed most of 2011 due to a variety of ailments (biceps, shoulder, abdomen) and hence has appeared in just six games, all as a reliever. This will be his first start of the season.

- Full on preview.

A-Rod rejoined the team yesterday but won't be activated until tomorrow at the earliest (probably as a DH).

Look for the gamethread at 8 p.m.
