(Here's the news story on Pettitte and Nova.)
• Girardi DH'ed Alex Rodriguez for the third straight game, but plans to put him at third base on Sunday.
• Derek Jeter is expected to be the team's DH on Sunday, but Eduardo Nunez will likely not play shortstop, Giardi said. Instead Girardi plans on going with Jayson Nix. Nix is at third base on Saturday.
When Nunez was first called up, he was in the lineup at shortstop, but Jeter wanted to play the field. Instead, Nunez DH'ed and contributed offensively. Since that day, Sept. 1, Nunez has only briefly appeared in one game.
