Posada returns to Yanks lineup, Soriano put on DL

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Jorge Posada has returned to the New York Yankees' lineup and will bat seventh, while reliever Rafael Soriano has been put on the disabled list.

Posada was listed as the designated hitter for Tuesday night's game at Tampa Bay. He is hitting .165 this season and pulled himself out of the lineup Saturday soon after he was set to bat ninth.

Soriano has been troubled by stiffness in his right elbow. He is 1-1 with one save and a 5.40 ERA.

Soriano led the AL in saves last year with Tampa Bay, but has struggled this season as the Yankees' setup man.

The Yankees called up outfielder Chris Dickerson from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
