With Jeff Keppinger on the restricted list and not with the team, Sean Rodriguez will move over and start at third base and Elliot Johnson will get the start at shortstop.

Desmond Jennings is not in the lineup but said his sprained left knee feels much better.

When asked when he might return to the lineup, Jennings said, “Soon. I feel like very soon (but) I can’t point out a day.”

Outfielder Brandon Guyer joined the team today to fill Keppinger’s spot on the roster and is not sure how long he will stay. With lefty CC Sabathia starting for the Yankees on Thursday, he might be here for another day. Or, Guyer might head back to Durham if Keppinger is back by Thursday.

Here are the lineups:

Zobrist RF
Peña 1B
Upton CF
Joyce LF
Scott DH
Rhymes 2B
Johnson SS
Rodriguez 3B
Gimenez C

Niemann P

Jeter SS
Granderson CF
Rodriguez 3B
Cano 2B
Teixeira 1B
Swisher RF
Ibanez DH
Martin C
Wise LF

Phelps P
