Game 121: Yankees (61-59) @ Rays (61-61)


St. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Carlos Beltran returns to the outfield for the first time since May 11 this afternoon, which means Derek Jeter gets a DH day and Brendan Ryan makes a rare start -- his 12th of the season -- at shortstop. Ah, but will the Yankees' offense return as well against Rays left-hander Drew Smyly, one of the three players acquired at the trade deadline for David Price ?

If so, this is the lineup that will be responsible:

Brett Gardner LF

Jeter DH

Jacoby Ellsbury CF

Mark Teixeira 1B

Beltran RF

Chase Headley 3B

Martin Prado 2B

Francisco Cervelli C

Ryan SS

Shane Greene RHP
