BALTIMORE -- Lost in the hubbub of the Derek Jeter shutdown is the fact that there is still a game tonight, and a quite important one at that. Here is the lineup Joe Girardi is sending out against the Orioles and righthanded starter Scott Feldman, first pitch at 7:05 p.m.:

Brett Gardner CF
Alex Rodriguez DH
Robinson Cano 2B
Alfonso Soriano LF
Curtis Granderson RF
Mark Reynolds 3B
Lyle Overbay 1B
Brendan Ryan SS
Chris Stewart C

Andy Pettitte LHP

Alex Rodriguez showed up capable of playing after leaving Tuesday night's game with a strain of the left hamstring, and as Joe Girardi said last night, is the DH tonight ... Brendan Ryan, who learned at about 10 p.m. Eastern time last night that he had been traded to the Yankees, flew overnight from Seattle to New York, changed planes for Baltimore and arrived here at about 10 a.m. this morning. Of course, he is in the starting lineup tonight ... Girardi said Ryan and Eduardo Nunez will split time at shortstop the rest of the way, Ryan against "ground ball pitchers" and Nunez against "fly ball pitchers" ... as expected, Austin Romine, who took a ball off the mask Tuesday night, has been diagnosed with a slight concussion and will not play for a few days ... Girardi has still not decided on a starter for tomorrow's series finale here, but indicated it will be either David Huff or Phil Hughes, both of whom will be in the bullpen tonight. "It depends upon who we use," Girardi said. "We may not make our decision until tomorrow, or maybe tonight after the game." ... Pettitte is 28-6 with a 3.52 ERA lifetime against the Orioles, and is 8-0 over his last 12 starts against them. he hasn't lost to them since Sept. 19, 2007 ... Baltimore starter Scott Feldman owns a 3-4 record and 4.15 ERA in seven lifetime starts against the Yankees. Curtis Granderson has nicked Feldman for three HRs in 14 career at-bats.
