Scioscia looking to jiggle rotation

9/11/2011

Manager Mike Scioscia said his rotation is the last thing he thinks about before he goes to bed and the first thing he thinks about when he wakes up.

It could be the impetus to drive the Angels into the playoffs or, if it doesn't keep up its current pace, it could send them home. Scioscia has been mulling the timing of when to start Jered Weaver on three days' rest again. It could come as soon as next Sunday in Baltimore. That would set Weaver up to pitch the final game of the season on his normal four days' rest.

"There is most likely going to be one day he comes back short," Scioscia said. "There are a lot of different things we’ve talked about in terms of the timing of it."

Here are lineups for Sunday's game:

New York

1. Derek Jeter SS

2. Curtis Granderson CF

3. Mark Teixeira 1B

4. Robinson Cano 2B

5. Jesus Montero C

6. Eric Chavez 3B

7. Andruw Jones RF

8. Eduardo Nunez 2B

9. Brett Gardner

Angels

1. Erick Aybar SS

2. Howie Kendrick 2B

3. Bobby Abreu DH

4. Torii Hunter RF

5. Mark Trumbo 1B

6. Alberto Callaspo 3B

7. Peter Bourjos CF

8. Mike Trout LF

9. Bobby Wilson C
