Jair Jurrjens won't exactly be facing the Yankees' A-list lineup, but it will be interesting to see how he fares against the top five, and it's always fun to watch Jesus Montero. Jordan Schafer returns to the lineup today, while Shawn Bowman gets the start at third. Chipper Jones returns to DH for a day as a breather. Also, Matt Young is getting the start in right.

Not much to report on the mound. All five relievers are slated to hold roles in the bullpen this year. It is worth watching to see how Proctor does considering he's been struggling.
