Game 48 Lineup: Yankees @ Angels

Lineup vs. Angels

Derek Jeter SS
Curtis Granderson CF
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Mark Teixeira 1B
Raul Ibanez LF
Nick Swisher RF
Eric Chavez DH
Russell Martin C

RHP Phil Hughes

UPDATES:

— Brett Gardner took dry swings today and so far, so good. The best case scenario would be that Gardner would be back by the Mets vs. Yankees series on June 8 but Gardner would still have to go through hitting off a tee, light batting practice, live batting practice & a rehab assignment.

— David Robertson played catch today. All went well and he is scheduled to play catch tomorrow. Girardi has no rehab plan for Robertson as of yet.

— Russell Martin is back in the lineup after suffering a stiff neck. He aggravated it yesterday while lifting weights but he’s feeling better.
