A-Rod still is on the Yankees' payroll as a part-time special advisor, but he's been busy with new love Jennifer Lopez and his Fox broadcasting duties, which are good excuses for a no-show.

The New York Yankees game against the Houston Astros scheduled for Saturday afternoon has been postponed because of a forecast of inclement weather and is rescheduled as part of a single-admission doubleheader Sunday.

Unfortunately, if you had tickets to today's game, you will not be able to attend the doubleheader tomorrow.

The New York Yankees have given a preview to what hats the players wear for Derek Jeter's number retirement ceremony. The ceremony will now begin at 6:30 p.m. instead of 6:00 p.m. Frazier, acquired from Cleveland last season, is hitting.243, with five home runs and 19 runs batted in, at Class AAA Scranton-Wilkes Barre, after hitting.282 in his last 10 games, and shortstop Torres, the centerpiece of the trade with the Cubs past year, is hitting.280, with one homer and nine RBI, at Class AA Trenton, after batting.295 in his last 10 games. Sunday's doubleheader already is sold out.

Charlie Morton and Masahiro Tanaka are expected to start the nightcap. Those who had tickets to Saturday's game can exchange them for another game this season, provided they are available. Expect that Saturday's projected starters, Luis Severino and Mike Fiers, will pitch during one of the games on Sunday.
