It looks like the Yankees have planned everything to recall the third baseman Brandon Drury from Triple-A to play a first base against Red Sox over falling bird Greg Bird.
On Friday, the move was delayed due to the Yankees having known for about a week that they would face the three Red Sox left-handed starters.
Bird, after all, is a left-handed hitter who went into the weekend batting .191 and Drury, who had played three games in a row this week, was recalled with an average of .309 in 54 Triple A games.
A Yankees blowout later nothing has changed, though Bird first started on Friday night and smacked two homers, one of the left Eduardo Rodriguez.
Before the game, Yankees GM Brian Cashman said, "I'd totally expect you to see (Drury) play first base of at least one of these games this weekend."
Drury makes his first career start on the first Saturday y night a very good bet with the Red Sox starting Chris Sale, who is as tough for lefties as any left in the game.
