With Carlos Beltran an Astro, the Yankees will have to look elsewhere for a DH. Edwin Encarnacion is out there, but it remains to be seen if the Yankees will go for four or five years for $20M a season for a 33-year-old. Matt Holiday is a fallback option.

Courtney Lee went through some workouts today but didn't practice. He plans to test his ankle on Sunday prior to the Knicks' game against the Kings and hopes to play. The fact that he didn't practice Saturday seems to indicate that he won't suit up tomorrow. Lee hurt his ankle in the first half against Minnesota on Wednesday. He's officially listed as questionable. If he can't play, expect Justin Holiday to start.
