Brett Gardner CF
Jayson Nix SS
Robinson Cano 2B
Vernon Wells LF
Lyle Overbay 1B
Curtis Granderson DH
David Adams 3B
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Chris Stewart C

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.

  1. Must say Adams is exactly what I thought he’d be. He’s made a very strong first impression in his first 2 MLB games. He looks poised and aggressive and his talent is evident. He has a quick bat and hits the ball hard to all fields….I like him a lot. He reminds me a little of Toronto’s young 3B Brett Lawrie (though not as intense) and Texas 2B Ian Kinsler. He looks like he belongs to me and I’m pulling for the kid.

    Doug/OldYank and everyone….what are your impressions of Adams?

    • fishjam, I agree he reminds me of Michael Young or Kinsler. He might be just what the Yanks need at this time a younger player who can be a starter. That would be huge moving forward, the Yanks could concentrate on getting more pitching next year, add McCann, Zorbrist, Morse, if they become available.
