DETROIT -- The Yankees need a game tonight, so Joe Girardi shook up his lineup a little bit in hopes the Yankees offense can come alive against David Price. Brett Gardner is back after a three-game absence, but batting eighth for the just the fourth time this season due to his 2-for-20 career numbers against Price.

Here's the lineup:

Jacoby Ellsbury CF
Derek Jeter SS
Martin Prado 2B
Mark Teixeira 1B
Carlos Beltran RF
Brian McCann DH
Chase Headley 3B
Gardner LF
Francisco Cervelli C

Shane Greene RHP
