David Aardsma is likely to be activated quite soon, per Chad Jennings. While he will likely be fairly limited, any pitches he can save from the arms of Robertson, Chamberlain, Soriano, and Logan would be a godsend – and, of course, set him on the path towards contributing from Opening Day next year.

|New York Yankees||Minnesota Twins|
|Derek Jeter, SS||Denard Span, CF|
