Insight: Jones has certainly been useful when in the lineup with 14 HR and 34 RBI in just 230 at-bats, but you shouldn't expect to see him on Saturday until after Romero is out of the game.

Description: You might expect Yankees outfielder/DH Andruw Jones in the lineup against the Blue Jays left Brett Cecil, but the numbers don't back the play. Jones is 0-for-9 against Cecil and overall this season his OPS is 119 points lower versus lefties than right-handers.

Insight: Jones was 2-for-5 on Tuesday with his second home run of the year. Assuming Yankees manager Joe Girardi sees these same statistics we see, Jones should be in Wednesday's starting lineup. This is one of those times when you should pick up a player for one game only, play him and then release him tomorrow.

Description: Yankees OF Andruw Jones told reporters he rolled his ankle on a double-play ball over the weekend and might miss a day or two.

SOURCE: JON HEYMAN
Insight: He would be a bat off the bench for New York so he wouldn't have any mixed league value. But, his ability to hit a few homers could make him relevant in AL-Only leagues, especially since he wouldn't have enough at-bats to affect a team's batting average too much.
