Angels vs. Yankees Lineups: Albert Pujols, Robinson Cano Batting Third

The Angels have struggled in the early going of the 2012 season, but they'll turn to stud left-handed pitcher C.J. Wilson to try and right the ship on Saturday afternoon. Los Angeles will face a tough Yankees lineup stocked with sluggers, so Wilson needs to get ahead in the count and keep his pitches down in the zone if he hopes to come away with a win on Saturday afternoon.

Albert Pujols is batting third once again for the club. Mark Trumbo was given the day off and was replaced by Alberto Callaspo, who is batting sixth. The rest of the lineup looks pretty similar to what manager Mike Scoscia has gone with this season.

Angels:

Erick Aybar SS
Howie Kendrick 2B
Albert Pujols 1B
Kendrys Morales DH
Torii Hunter RF
Alberto Callaspo 3B
Vernon Wells LF
Chris Iannetta C
Peter Bourjos CF

C.J. Wilson SP

Yankees:

Derek Jeter SS
Nick Swisher RF
Robinson Cano 2B
Alex Rodriguez DH
Mark Teixeira 1B
Curtis Granderson CF
Andruw Jones LF
Russell Martin C
Eduardo Nunez 3B

Phil Hughes SP

First pitch is set for 1:10 ET from Yankees Stadium.
