NEW YORK -- No Derek Jeter, no Brian McCann, and as expected, no Mark Teixeira for today's series finale against the Detroit Tigers. The first two just have days off; Joe Girardi had said last night that Tex would not play today after suffering a cut on his left pinkie in a play at the plate that required three stitches.
So here is the lineup that will face Rick Porcello as the Yankees try to take three of four from the AL Central leaders:
Martin Prado 3B
Stephen Drew SS
Brendan Ryan 2B
Shane Greene RHP
