• Rosters expand on Sunday, but the Yankees haven't made a final decision on which players they will call up, or even how many. Girardi said he would talk to general manager Brian Cashman and finalize those plans on Saturday night.

Alfonso Soriano has been one of the hottest hitters in baseball of late, but he's been much more successful as a left fielder than he has as a designated hitter, which is where he will play on Sunday. Soriano entered Saturday batting .262 as a left fielder this season but just .238 as a DH.

"You want him to be able to play every day," Girardi said. "So if you can get him a little time off his feet, you hope that it's helpful."
