UPDATE, 5:09: Cash said LHP Xavier Cedeno's season is over, as it doesn't make sense to get him into games now as he remains bothered by neck tightness that has sidelined him since Aug. 29. ... Querecuto was all smiles in the clubhouse, recounting how his dad woke him Tuesday with news that he was going to the major leagues and how excited he was.

Yankees lineup:
Gardner lf
Ellsbury cf
Sanchez c
Butler dh
Teixeira 1b
Headley 3b
Gregorius ss

DEVELOPING:  The Rays are looking to avoid a sweep by the Yankees, and they will have their newest player in the lineup, as Juniel Querecuto will make his major-league debut starting at 3B.

Evan Longoria, who hit his 36th homer on Wednesday, is in the lineup but as the DH, and Brad Miller is at SS.

Here is the Rays lineup:

Forsythe 2b,
Kiermaier cf,
Longoria dh,
