NEW YORK -- Ho hum, another quiet day at Yankee Stadium. There's a new third baseman on the way, tonight's right fielder has never played there in his major league life, and the first baseman is really a catcher.

Here's the lineup for tonight's game against the Texas Rangers and RHP Nick Martinez:

Brett Gardner LF
Derek Jeter SS
Jacoby Ellsbury CF
Carlos Beltran DH
Brian McCann 1B
Kelly Johnson RF
Brian Roberts 2B
Francisco Cervelli C
Zelous Wheeler 3B

Chase Whitley RHP

Chase Headley, the new third baseman who was acquired in a trade for Yangervis Solarte and minor league pitcher Rafael De Paula, is not expected to arrive at the ballpark until after first pitch, but Joe Girardi said he would be available to pinch hit.
