Yankees lineup vs. Orioles: David Phelps returns; Chase Headley suffers no fractures

Today we have a doubleheader against the Orioles with Brandon McCarthy going out for the day game and Bryan Mitchell coming out for the night game.

Derek Jeter is out of the lineup today after getting hit in the elbow last night. It is yet to be determined if he'll be available in the night game. Without Jeter, the top of the lineup is Jacoby Ellsbury, Martin Prado at third base, and DH Brian McCann. Mark Teixeira is hitting cleanup with last night's hero Chris Young in left field and batting fifth and Stephen Drew at second. John Ryan Murphy is behind the plate as Brendan Ryan gets the start at short and Antoan Richardson is in right field.

David Phelps has been reinstated from the disabled list in time for today's doubleheader. He's available for 25-30 pitches and it looks like he'll be in the bullpen going forward. Chase Headley's tests all came back negative, meaning he suffered no fractures when he was hit in the chin last night. He required stitches and will see a neurologist before he is deemed ready to return.
