NOTES: As you can see from the above lineups, it's a major league kind of day around here. In addition to Granderson and Phelps, Hideki Matsui is here again. Not sure what he's gonna do, but he's here. Not available to the media again, oh well. ... It will also be a good time to see what's going with ScoutWatch 2013 as it pertains to the trade deadline.

Update - 5:39: Tyler Austin is at the doctor. This much was expected. I reported last week that a re-evaluation was coming, and also that it had been pushed back. He's been on the shelf since July 16 with a bone bruise.

As for people who are here, Curtis Granderson is expected to play seven or eight innings, then do the same thing again tomorrow. They'll decide shortly thereafter whether he'll play here again on Thursday, although there is some rain in the forecast for that day.

David Phelps is going six innings or so tonight, a big move up from the 3 2/3 innings he lasted his last time out.
