MINNEAPOLIS -- Brian McCann has been inserted into the Yankees starting lineup after he was a late scratch on Saturday with a sore left foot.
McCann tested out his foot in batting practice on Sunday and felt confident enough to be inserted into the lineup after it was already set. McCann replaces Francisco Cervelli at catcher and is batting fifth.
Brett Gardner returns to the top of the order after getting a day off on Saturday.
Here’s the lineup:
Derek Jeter, SS
Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
Mark Teixeira, 1B
Carlos Beltran, DH
Brian Roberts, 2B
Ichiro Suzuki, RF
Kelly Johnson, 3B
Hiroki Kuroda, P (5-6, 4.08 ERA)
