DETROIT -- Here's the Yankees' lineup for today's game, first pitch at 4:05 p.m.
Vernon Wells LF
Lyle Overbay 1B
Jayson Nix SS
Phil Hughes RHP
Pregame notes: Phil Hughes was starting somewhere today, either here or for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, but with the Yankees reeling and the bullpen short, the club chose to activate him to start in a ballpark where he threw his only nine-inning complete game victory of his career, last year. Hughes is 5-4 overall against the Tigers with a 4.22 ERA, but 3-2 with a 2.78 ERA at Comerica ... Ichiro Suzuki gets his first day off of the season. Ichiro said Joe Girardi told him yesterday that he would not play today ... Eduardo Nunez reported that his right bicep "feels much better" after being hit with a pitch on Friday, but said it was too sore for him to throw. He will be limited to pinch-running duty today.
