Yankees lineup vs. Blue Jays - Manny Banuelos placed on the disabled list with blister

Jim McIsaac

Hopefully the Yankees can do to the Blue Jays tonight what they did to them when they were in the Bronx last week. After the series with the Orioles, they could use the win.

The Yankees lineup looks a little different with Derek Jeter getting the day off in Toronto. Brett Gardner, Carlos Beltran, and Jacoby Ellsbury are at the top of the lineup. Mark Teixeira, Brian McCann and Kelly Johnson are in the middle of the order. Brian Robers, Ichiro Suzuki, and Brendan Ryan round out the bottom of the lineup.

Manny Banuelos was supposed to start for the Trenton Thunder today, but he's been placed on the disabled list instead. The lefty had been rehabbing from Tommy John surgery before suffering from a "tired" arm that he seemed to be getting passed. He had actually said the other day that he was ready for more work than the three-inning limit the Yankees have had him on all season. Now this.

Thankfully it's just a blister:

The Yankees have released outfielder Mikeson Oliberto from Low-A Charleston. The righty was only able to hit .186/.256/.343 in the Sally League at the age of 23. They also released outfielder Cody Grice, who spent last year in High-A, Double-A, and Triple-A, however, he was assigned to Tampa again at the age of 24 to open the season.
