Mark Teixeira, 1B

Robinson Cano, DH

Jesus Montero, C

Eric Chavez, 3B

Andruw Jones, RF

Eduardo Nunez, 2B

Notes: Joe Girardi said he is starting Jesus Montero at catcher because he has to. Girardi doesn't think that Russell Martin will be ready to play for a day or two. Girardi has no idea when Francisco Cervelli will be back. He is off to New York to have his concussion-like symptoms examined. Austin Romine will be with the Yankees by game time on Sunday. Girardi said that Montero and Romine would be ahead of Posada on the depth chart, no matter if Posada feels fine on Monday.

Nick Swisher could be back on Monday in Seattle, but Girardi was unsure. The Yankees will pitch Phil Hughes, A.J. Burnett and Ivan Nova the next three days.

The Yankees will wear NYPD and FDNY during pre-game ceremonies. During the game, their has will have American Flags on them.
