Yankees News: Lineup Notes, Dirty Hats and Heathcott

CC Sabathia takes the mound against C.J. Wilson in Game 1 of the ALCS, and we’ll have recaps tonight.

Here are some notes:

  • Against the lefty, the Yankees are still going with Curtis Granderson and Brett Gardner. Marcus Thames is also in the lineup tonight at DH.
  • The Rangers have geared up for the Yankees lefties by carrying two extra lefty relievers than they did in the ALDS, Michael Kirkman and Clay Rapada.
  • Sabathia said he could go on short rest in Game 4 if he had to.
  • A lot has been made about the rosin on Cliff Lee‘s hat. It’s almost definitely nothing, and the Yankees aren’t expected to make a big deal about it.
  • The other day I mentioned this and I just wanted to follow up on it. Minor league OF Slade Heathcott had labrum shoulder surgery last week. It was a pre- existing injury that he had tried to play through. He’ll likely be ready to go for next season, but that isn’t guaranteed.

That’s all for now. Pretty straightforward stuff. Like I said up top, I have some pitcher previews coming up before the game tonight ,and I have another Talking Rangers that will be posted soon. Stay tuned…
