Game 122: Yankees (62-59) at Rays (61-62)

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Brian McCann returns after missing six games with a concussion, and Derek Jeter is the DH for the second day in a row on the Tropicana Field turf.

Otherwise, there are no surprises in the Yankees lineup that will face righty Jeremy Hellickson on Sunday in the rubber game of this series and the finale of this rain-shortened five-game road trip, on which the Yankees are 1-3 so far:

Brett Gardner, LF

Derek Jeter, DH

Jacoby Ellsbury, CF

Mark Teixeira, 1B

Carlos Beltran, RF

Brian McCann, C

Chase Headley, 3B

Stephen Drew, SS

Martin Prado, 2B

Hiroki Kuroda, RHP

Notes: Kuroda is coming off a subpar outing against the Indians a week ago at Yankee Stadium, in which he allowed three runs in just 4 2/3 innings in a 4-1 Yankees loss. Kuroda is 2-4 lifetime against the Rays with a 6.07 ERA, and 1-2 with 6.94 ERA at The Trop. He is 0-3 in his past four starts against Tampa Bay. ... Matt Joyce likes hitting against Kuroda; he is 7-for-20 (.350) lifetime against him, and three of those hits are home runs. Evan Longoria is 9-for-21 (.429) against Kuroda, with one homer. ... Hellickson is 4-1 lifetime against the Yankees with a 2.95 ERA, but has not won at home since July 5, 2013, a stretch of eight starts.
