Game 139: Tex ReturnsBy
After ten games on the shelf with a left calf strain, Mark Teixeira is back in the Yankees lineup tonight … assuming they actually play. The weather forecast in Baltimore is abysmal, though there may be a two or three hour window to get the game in at some point. If the game is postponed for whatever reason, expect them to play a doubleheader tomorrow despite Monday’s mutual off-day — the Ravens are hosting Monday Night Football and the two stadiums share parking facilities. Anyway, here’s the tentative starting nine…
LHP CC Sabathia
Tonight’s game is scheduled to start a little after 7pm ET, but who knows. If they play, you can watch on YES locally and MLB Network nationally. Enjoy.
Ivan Nova Update: Nova (shoulder) has been activated off the DL and will be available out of the bullpen today and tomorrow. Barring extra innings or something like that tonight, I’m guessing Joe Girardi will have a quick hook with Freddy Garcia tomorrow and use Nova as his caddy.
