Pena at short, Swisher at first

Tweet [1]

Right before I walked into the stadium I was told the Yankees have checked in on Ryan Dempster, but they dont expect to trade for him. The Yankees believe he is more likely going to the Dodgers, and one source indicates that the Yankees suspect they are being used as nothing more than leverage for the Cubs to get more in the deal.

Trade deadline is still a few minutes away. Here is the Yankees lineup for the day. No one unexpected listed on the lineup card.

Derek Jeter DH
Curtis Granderson CF
Robinson Cano 2B
Nick Swisher 1B
Raul Ibanez LF
Eric Chavez 3B
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Russell Martin C
Ramiro Pena SS

RHP Ivan Nova
