Game 131 Lineup: Yankees @ Blue Jays

Tonight at 7 p.m. catch the third installment of “The Captain Returns.” Hopefully this is the LAST time he has to return from an injury. Here’s your starting lineup!

Brett Gardner CF
Derek Jeter SS
Robinson Cano 2B
Alfonso Soriano LF
Curtis Granderson DH
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Lyle Overbay 1B
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Austin Romine C

Phil Hughes RHP

Some Notes and Transactions:

— Well if you looked at the lineup, Derek Jeter is back. Also R.A. Dickey is on the mound so a word of advice to the Yankees: Keep your hands in because that knuckleball will find a way to hit you.

— This isn’t Yankees news but it’s important to address it: Matt Harvey of the New York Mets had an MRI done at the Hospital of Special Surgery this morning and his MRI results revealed a partial tear in his UCL. He’s going on the DL and will miss some time. I’m wishing Matt Harvey a speedy recovery and hope he returns soon.
