Game 107: Matz vs. Green

Gary Sanchez has been called up to start tonight's game against a tough southpaw, but the team has been mostly quiet regarding his role thereafter. The presence of Alex Rodriguez firmly entrenched on the bench muddies the situation, as it seems that the most appropriate role for Sanchez would be to split time with Brian McCann between catcher and DH. And, for the time being at least, that does not seem likely, given that they already have one player with no positional flexibility on the roster.

For tonight, at least, we'll get a small glimpse of the future. Here's the Yankees lineup for this evening:

  1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
  2. Rob Refsnyder, RF
  3. Mark Teixeira, 1B
  4. Chase Headley, 3B
  5. Starlin Castro, 2B
  6. Didi Gregorius, SS
  7. Austin Romine, C
  8. Gary Sanchez, DH
  9. Aaron Hicks, LF

The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 PM.
