With Big Mike now on the DL, the Yankees' old ace moves up a day to try to pick up the slack and secure a seventh straight series victory.

Today was supposed to be Michael Pineda's start as the Yankees tried to finish off a 3-1 series victory over the Rangers. Unfortunately, a forearm strain has sent him to the DL, so the Yankees simply bumped CC Sabathia up a day to take his start since everyone was initially given an extra day's rest thanks to Tuesday's adventures with the since-DFA'd Chris Capuano. Bryan Mitchell and Nick Goody were also recalled from Triple-A Scranton to provide extra relief with Caleb Cotham returning to the minors. Dustin Ackley won't be on the roster until Friday in Chicago, so there are no position player changes to report just yet.

You can catch tonight's game at 8:05 PM EST on YES Network, FOX Sports-Southwest, or MLB.tv.

Go Yankees, go baseball, win the dang series.
