No Gardner, no Ibanez, Jones in a left, Granderson swaps with Swisher in the order, Jeter at DH to get Nunez in the lineup. Not bad. Seven right-handers (two switch-hitters) in the lineup against Price. Kuroda in his Yankee debut faces a re-shuffled Rays lineup. Coming off a season in which he gave up Jeter’s 3000th hit, Price was 1-1 with a 5.22 ERA in five starts against Yankees.
