The top two hitters in the Yankees everyday lineup are starting tomorrow’s All-Star game, but it’s a different combination of Yankees that will hit at the top of the American League batting order. Derek Jeter will take a familiar spot as the leadoff hitter, but this time he’ll be followed by Robinson Cano, not Curtis Granderson. In a power-packed lineup, Granderson will actually be the No. 9 hitter.
