Joba Chamberlain has been placed on the 15-day DL a strained flexor muscle. According to reports, this is something he's been dealing with for a while.
Hector Noesi has been sent back to Triple-A after working six last night. Amaury Sanit has been called up to take his place in the pen. I assume this is just to get a fresh arm up here and eventually Noesi will be back with the big club. He's certainly earned it.
- As I reported before, Jeff Marquez will be in uniform tonight. He will take the other open spot on the roster.
- Jorge Posada will miss tonight's game because his son, Jorge III, underwent another surgery for craniosynotosis. The Posada's hope this will be the final surgery for his son.
And here's tonight's lineup, and yes Teixeira is playing:
Derek Jeter SS
Curtis Granderson CF
Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez DH
Robinson Cano 2B
Nick Swisher RF
Brett Gardner LF
Eduardo Nunez 3B
Francisco Cervelli C
Pitching: RHP A.J. Burnett
