Joe Girardi needs to see Nick Swisher take batting practice before setting the lineup, but right now the plan is for Swisher to start in the outfield.
Five roster moves:
Mark Melancon to Scranton.
Jorge Posada to the DL.
Chad Moeller contract purchased.
Kevin Russo recalled.
Nick Johnson to 60-day DL.
Russo was called instead of Greg Golson because of Russo’s versatility. Russo has been playing a lot of outfield in Triple-A.
