Hideki Matsui's knee

Hideki Matsui is out of the lineup for tonight's game due to knee inflammation, according to Peter Abraham.

The inflammation in his left knee is serious enough that it will need to be drained tonight and he may need an MRI. He had surgery on his right knee in the offseason.

Earlier this evening, Joe Girardi said he'd be able to pinch hit, but that's obviously not the case now.

As for the lineup tonight, Jason Giambi will start in Matsui's place at designated hitter and Wilson Betemit will man first base.
