By Cash Kruth / MLB.com
Jose Bautista will be back in the Blue Jays' lineup for the first time since Sunday, batting third as the designated hitter in Friday night's game against the Yankees.
Bautista has been sidelined the past four games with back spasms. He's missed six games this season with a variety of aliments.
The veteran slugger is hitting .200 with three homers and six RBIs in nine games.
