Yankees captain Derek Jeter is getting a day off to rest and Boston star Dustin Pedroia is getting a fresh start in the leadoff spot. Managers Joe Girardi and John Farrell adjusted their lineups for Saturday afternoon's game at Yankee Stadium. Girardi says he doesn't want to overuse the 39-year-old Jeter and risk injury. This is Jeter's last season. ''I wasn't hired to put on a farewell tour,'' Girardi said. Pedroia has not drawn a walk in 50 at-bats this season.
