Palka is on the bench Wednesday against left-hander CC Sabathia and the Yankees.

Palka hasn't been entirely protected from lefties this season, though it's possible that he should be, as he's posted just a .675 OPS against them in 63 plate appearances. Nicky Delmonico will be the designated hitter in his place.
