As of Thursday evening, the Yankees ranked tenth in MLB in batting average, 13th in slugging percentage and 16th in slugging percentage. … Third baseman Yangervis Solarte leads the team in batting average (.283) among players with at least 100 at-bats. Since May 15, however, the rookie has hit only .152. … First baseman Mark Teixeira hasn’t played since May 25 because of a sore wrist.

TWINS UPDATE

The Twins are in big need of a spark after losing six of their past seven games and three of four to Texas. … Phil Hughes will make his first return to the Big Apple after posting an ERA over 5.00 in two of the past three seasons. The 27-year-old is currently on a streak of facing 175 batters without giving up a walk. … Center fielder Aaron Hicks has been held out of the starting lineup for two consecutive games because of back spasms. Rookie shortstop Danny Santana has been playing in his absence.
