A-Rod is getting a rest day on Monday as he recently returned from the DL and the Yankees don't want to push him too hard. Carlos Beltran will be in the DH spot on Monday against Marco Estrada and the Blue Jays.
Tex has been out of the Yankees starting lineup since last Tuesday with a lingering neck issue. He had been targeting Monday as a return date for the last few days and will now bat fifth in the lineup and start at first against Marco Estrada.
With the Marllins facing a lefty in Francisco Liriano on Monday, the left-handed hitting Bour will take a seat in favor of Chris Johnson at first base. Bour should be back in the lineup on Tuesday with the lefty no longer on the mound.
Stanton hasn't played in a game since last Tuesday as he continues to deal with right side soreness. He did participate in batting practice on Sunday and was thought to be ready to go for Monday's game but his return will have to wait another day. Cole Gillespie will be in right field on Monday and batting eighth in the order.
