Game 115: Yanks (60-54) vs. Indians (57-58)

NEW YORK -- The Yankees will face a fellow wild-card contender, the Indians, for three games at Yankee Stadium this weekend.

This afternoon, the Yankees called up righty Bryan Mitchell and designated Matt Daley for assignment. It is very likely Daley will end up back at Triple-A Scranton.

Mitchell had a 2.88 ERA in five starts for Triple-A Scranton. With Esmil Rogers making his Yankees starting debut tonight, Mitchell and others could be called on if Rogers struggles. Here is the lineup Rogers will be working with.

Mark Teixeira is sitting out again because of the stitches in his pinkie.
