NEW YORK -- Joe Girardi unveiled his 50th different batting order of the season for the New York Yankees' 54th game, Saturday afternoon against the Minnesota Twins. After losing Friday night to Ricky Nolasco, who has the second worst ERA among all regular major league starters (5.70), the Yankees now face Kevin Correia, whose 6.34 ERA is the worst of any full-time big league starting pitcher.

The Yankees lineup:

Brett Gardner, LF
Derek Jeter, DH
Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
Mark Teixeira, 1B
Brian McCann, C
Alfonso Soriano, RF
Yangervis Solarte, 2B
Kelly Johnson, 3B
Brendan Ryan, SS

Masahiro Tanaka, RHP

NOTES: Carlos Beltran took batting practice again Saturday, and Girardi said the Yankees may try to make a decision on Beltran after he takes BP one more time on Sunday. Beltran remains on the disabled list with right elbow inflammation. ... Shawn Kelley, on the DL with a strained lumbar spine, played catch Saturday and expects to throw in the bullpen Sunday. ... Jeter is the Yankees DH for just the second time this season. ... Teixeira is in the lineup again, and Girardi said he doesn't plan to give him any more than the usual number of days off in order to protect the wrist that cost him three days this week. "If he says he's OK, he's going to play," Girardi said.
