Here's the new lineup:

Jeter SS
Roberts 2B
Ellsbury CF

Beltran DH
Suzuki RF
Soriano LF
Cervelli C

MINNEAPOLIS -- There aren't really any surprises throughout the lineup this afternoon as the Yankees look to win their third straight against the Twins at Target Field. The Yankees gave a couple veterans the day off for the Fourth of July but those players -- Derek Jeter and Brian McCann -- are back in the lineup for today's game.

Brian Roberts, who batted second yesterday and went 4-for-5 with four extra-base hits, got bumped down to sixth in the order with Jeter returning to the lineup. David Phelps will get the nod on the mound for the Yankees against Yohan Pino.

Here's the lineup:

Jacoby Ellsbury CF
Jeter SS
McCann C
Mark Teixeira 1B
Carlos Beltran DH
Roberts 2B
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Alfonso Soriano LF
Zelous Wheeler 3B

Phelps P (3-4, 4.26 ERA)
