Tonight's lineup is composed of the usual cast of characters: Brett Gardner, Derek Jeter, and Jacoby Ellsbury are at the top of the lineup, Mark Teixeira, Carlos Beltran, and Brian McCann make up the middle of the order, and Yangervis Solarte, Ichiro Suzuki, and Brian Roberts round out the lineup.
The Yankees have officially reactivated Shawn Kelley from the disabled list and have optioned Matt Daley to Triple-A. In a completely unrelated move, the Yankees have designated Wade LeBlanc for assignment and are replacing him on the 40-man roster with David Huff. Yes, that David Huff. He was just DFA'd by the Giants, so now he's available and this will save the season.
Aaron Judge is in deep need of a promotion after hitting .321/.424/.511 in Low-A Charleston this season. That promotion is finally coming as word is he will be promoted to High-A Tampa immediately following the South Atlantic League All-Star Game next week.
