Where's Oswaldo? Not adding to his 11 strike-outs in 13 at-bats since he's on the bench today.

Phil Hughes faced Samuel Deduno and the rest of the Twins last week and only gave up one run on six hits (for the win, of course, because Yankees). Hughes has been remarkably inconsistent this season, so let's pray sacrifice newborns hope the Twins have better luck this time around.

Sammy faced the Yankees while they were in Minnesota and did pretty well [for a Twins-Yankees match-up], giving up only three runs over six innings pitched. Hopefully Sammy can hold off the Jeter-less Twins today.
