Francisco Cervelli C

Pitchers:

Enjoy the game.

Pregame Notes:

— Looks like the Yankees are going with the 6-man rotation. Ivan Nova is now scheduled to pitch on Thursday in Chicago instead of Colon. Bartolo will get the start on Friday against the Red Sox.

— If Ivan Nova has another great start, and Hughes struggles again, Andrew Marchand of ESPNNY doesn’t see how the Yankees could leave Hughes in the rotation.

— Mike Axisa of RAB put up an interesting fun fact on his Twitter. “Brett Gardner has a .399 SLG. That would be the third highest on the White Sox behind Konerko (.550) and Quentin (.501).” Yikes, that means Gardner’s SLG is higher than Adam Dunn.
