Evolution of a lineup

Lyle Overbay, Brett Gardner, Robinson Cano, Jayson Nix

This was the Yankees lineup less than two weeks ago on the day after the All-Star break.

Brett Gardner CF
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Robinson Cano 2B
Vernon Wells DH
Zoilo Almonte LF
Lyle Overbay 1B
Brent Lillibridge 3B
Eduardo Nunez SS
Chris Stewart C

Curtis GrandersonThis seems to be a reasonable guess at their lineup when they have the DH again on Monday.

Alfonso Soriano DH

Jayson Nix 3B

Alex RodriguezThis might be their lineup if Alex Rodriguez defies expectation and returns within a few days.

Despite no move in the final hours of the trade deadline, is the Soriano addition and the healthy return of a few key players enough to make this lineup productive heading into the final two months of the season? Has it legitimately improved enough to provide reasonable run support behind this pitching staff?
