The Rays won’t have to contend with Alex Rodriguez tonight.  He’s been scratched due to right knee soreness.

Now the Yankees are trotting out the following lineup in support of Dellin Betances in his first big-league start:

SS Derek Jeter
CF Curtis Granderson
1B Mark Teixeira
2B Robinson Cano
RF Nick Swisher
LF Andruw Jones
C Jesus Montero
2B Eduardo Nunez
3B Brandon Laird

Tampa Bay will have Casey Kotchman back for this one.  He was scratched last night after being taken to the hospital for chest pains.
