Yankees' lineup Saturday vs. Orioles

Mark Saxon ESPN Staff Writer 

With Michael Wacha making his first start since Aug. 8 and their playoff hopes in the balance, the Cardinals will treat today's game like an elimination game. Don't be surprised if Mike Matheny goes to a reliever in the first inning if Wacha isn't pitching well. Carlos Martinez's strong seven innings was crucial to allow the Cardinals key relievers to rest Friday night. Matheny said the bullpen was in "worse shape than people know," but said everyone is available today.

The New York Yankees have clinched a fourth-place finish, their lowest position in the AL East since 1992. However, their 83 wins are tied for the fourth-most by a fourth-place team since MLB expanded to six divisions for the 1994 season.

Terry Collins insists the Mets are focused in the moment and have not even discussed a postseason roster. Still, Collins did allow that Eric Campbell and Ty Kelly would be strong considerations to start at first base against a left-hander such as Madison Bumgarner over lefty-hitting Lucas Duda or James Loney.

Lucas Duda asked not to play on Saturday. Duda is having difficulty playing back-to-back days as he returns from a four-month absence without rehab games. It is nothing specific to Duda's lower back, Terry Collins said. Instead, Duda simply is experiencing general soreness from ramping up in activity.

Terry Collins said he expects Bartolo Colon will bounce back on Saturday against the Phillies after he allowed seven runs in 2 1/3 innings in Miami in an emotional game in his last start. "Monday night was a difficult scene for anyone at that game," Collins said, alluding to the Marlins' first game after Jose Fernandez's death. "We're going to write that one off."
