Additional notes after the jump.
- Justin Morneau has been scratched from the lineup with some sort of foot aliment. Joe Mauer is playing first base.
- Michael Cuddyer is not in the lineup, but may be available off the bench (heard that one before).
- Alex Rodriguez is in the Yankees lineup for the first time since early July. Please contain your excitement.
