A.J. Burnett has been pushed to Tuesday because of tightness in his back. He felt or yesterday while throwing on flat ground.

“He is much improved today,” Joe Girardi said.

Phil Hughes will start tomorrow. Burnett asked to make the start today, but the Yankees decided to play it safe.

Alex Rodriguez will take batting practice to test his ankle/shin injury. Girardi said the lineup is subject to change.
