For starters, Rays vs Yankees; Zobrist in RF
The Rays will continue their "Championship Week" celebration today with a pre-game ceremony to hand out their AL Championship rings.
RHP Matt Garza will start for the Rays, and switch-hitting Ben Zobrist will be in rightfield against Yankees right-hander A.J. Burnett. Yankees slugger Mark Teixeira is back in the lineup after missing three games with tendinitis in his wrist.
C Michel Hernandez joined the Rays today after getting called up from Triple-A to replace backup C Shawn Riggans, placed on the 15-day DL with right shoulder tendinitis. Manager Joe Maddon said Hernandez will start Wednesday in the series finale with the Yankees.
