Upton back; Rays vs Yankees
As expected, CF B.J. Upton is back with the Rays, slated to hit leadoff and start in centerfield in their home opener against the Yankees at Tropicana Field.
Upton had been rehabbing a surgically-repaired left shoulder, and played three games for the Charlotte Stone Crabs, and will make his season debut tonight, when the Rays will unveil their championship banners.
The Yankees lineup is without Mark Teixeira and, of course, Alex Rodriguez, who worked out in Tampa today as he rehabs from hip surgery.
And the Yankees lineup:
- JOE SMITH
