Tonight’s Lineup: 7/18/14

Featuring the return of Carlos Beltran from the 7-day concussion DL.  He’ll bat 6th as the DH and the rest of tonight’s lineup looks like this:

1) Gardner- LF
2) Jeter- SS
3) Ellsbury- CF
4) Teix- 1B
5) Big Mac- C
6) Beltran- DH
7) Ichiro- RF
8) B-Rob- 2B
9) Johnson- 3B

SP) Phelpsie

You’ll remember that Bryan Mitchell was sent down to Triple-A during the break, so the Yankees already had an open 25-man roster spot.  No other move was made to get Beltran back into the mix.  Here’s hoping that little rest was enough for the rest of his body and he can start hitting again.

Born in Dover, Delaware and raised in Danbury, Connecticut, Brad now resides in Wisconsin, where he regularly goes out of his way to remind Brewers fans that their team will never be as good as the Yankees. When he’s not writing for IIATMS, he likes to spend his time incorporating “Seinfeld” quotes into everyday conversation, critiquing WWE storylines, and drinking enough beer to be good at darts.
