Jayson Nix SS
Robinson Cano 2B
Vernon Wells LF

LHP Andy Pettitte

– Ex-Yankee Hector Noesi will be on the mound for Seattle.  Aaron Harang was scratched.

– Andy Pettitte trys to right himself after a couple of rough starts

– Yankees called up Dellin Betances from Scranton and sent down Brett Marshall who was spent after throwing 108 pitches yesterday

– Jayson Nix gets his shot batting 2nd today.  Nix has had a very quiet season offensively but suprisingly, his .319 OBP% is 4th among healthy regulars behind Wells, Cano & Gardner.  Nix has hit 2nd 6 times this year and has hit .261/.293/.261 (6 for 23 with 5 Walks).  Not many Yankees have faced Noesi but Nix is 1 for 3 with a HR.
