The New York Yankees will have a starting third baseman back from the disabled list tonight -- but not Alex Rodriguez. The Yankees have activated Jayson Nix, who will play third as the Yankees travel out West to face the N.L. West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers. #Yankees lineup vs LAD: Gardner CF, Jeter SS, Cano 2B, Soriano LF, Overbay 1B, Ichiro RF, Nix 3B, Stewart C, Pettitte P — New York Yankees (@Yankees) July 30, 2013 Nix may not provide the power that Yankee fans may have wanted at third base, but he is steady at the position, and he gives the Yankees a little stability while they decide whether or not to add another power bat to the lineup before the trade deadline. He is hitting .236/.303/.304 with 2 HR and 20 RBI in 73 games, but he has shown better power in the past. The Yankees are getting healthy. The question now is whether or not they still have enough time to capture a postseason berth. They enter play on July 30 in fourth place, 7.5 games behind Tampa Bay, in the A.L. East. They are still well within striking distance of a wild card spot at just 2.5 games out. Follow Raymond on Twitter @RayBureau. Like Raymond’s “Baseball Bureau” page on Facebook.
