CLEVELAND -- Carlos Beltran feels better but not good enough to return to the Yankees' lineup, so it will be Mark Teixeira in the DH slot for tonight's Game 2 of this four-game series with the Indians, and Kelly Johnson will start at first base for the 22nd time this season.

Here's the lineup Joe Girardi is sending out behind Masahiro Tanaka tonight:

Brett Gardner LF
Derek Jeter SS
Jacoby Ellsbury CF
Teixeira 1B
Brian McCann C
Brian Roberts 2B
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Johnson 1B
Zelous Wheeler 3B

Tanaka RHP

RHP Trevor Bauer (2-4, 4.42) is starting for the Indians. Bauer has made one career start against the Yankees, throwing 6 1/3 innings of six-hit, two-run ball in the second game of a doubleheader on May 13, 2013, but came out on the short end of a shutout loss . . . Tanaka (12-3, 2.27) is facing the Indians for the first time.
