The Yanks turn to California native Phil Hughes to avoid losing 3 straight to the suddenly red hot A’s. Oakland is 12-2 in their last 14 and they send (what else) another rookie to the mound tonight, this time hard throwing righty Jarrod Parker. Parker is 6-4 on the year with a 3.16 ERA. Parker came to the A’s from the Diamondbacks in the Trevor Cahill trade this past winter. He has good strikeout (7.0/9) and Hit numbers (7.3/9) but has walked (4.1/9) a few too many. It will be interesting to see if the Yankees can take advantage of that after having little success executing their game plan last night.
In other Yankee news the Yanks sent Nick Swisher for an MRI on his balky hip. There’s no word as to the results yet, but Swishalicious is confident he’ll be able to avoid a DL stint. I believe him, we’ve seen him get (pardon the pun) nicked up before and he seems to be very proactive in not letting minor strains get worse.
Here’s your lineup, courtesy of Chad Jennings over at LoHud:
Derek Jeter SS
Curtis Granderson CF
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Mark Teixeira 1B
Raul Ibanez LF
Eric Chavez DH
Russell Martin C
Dewayne Wise RF
One more note. The big man, Mr Carsten Charles Sabathia turns 32 today, so we send out birthday wishes. Here’s to hoping the Yanks get him a win on his special day. GO YANKS!!!!!
