The second-place Yankees and the hot-hitting Red Sox should receive some reinforcements for their Tuesday night tilt at Fenway Park, as rosters will expand to 40 players. The two teams have the option to make their first wave of September callups before the middle game of this three-game series, which begins at 7:10 p.m. ET.
The Yankees could stand to add a corner infielder in light of Monday's news that first baseman Mark Teixeira will miss at least the remainder of the series after bruising a bone in his right leg. Rookie Greg Bird and even designated hitter Alex Rodriguez could see time at first with Teixeira out.
