The Yankees dropped the series finale against the Orioles yesterday, but still were able to take two of three and win the series. Today they start a much bigger series against the Rays, which could determine who wins the AL East.

Here are some notes:

Swisher and Brett Gardner seem like they’re ready to go against the Rays, but the Yankees bullpen is a bit taxed as Boone Logan, Kerry Wood, Joba Chamberlain, David Robertson, and Mariano Rivera all pitched yesterday. Only Joba pitched in back-to-back days, so most of the pen will be available tonight, but it’s not exactly like all hands on deck.

Check back throughout the day, as we’ll have plenty more Yankees news and updates.
