Blue Jays Have Made Themselves at Home at Yankee Stadium

The Yankees have finally shed the dead weight that was Alex Rodriguez and have committed to the roster turnover, calling up some of their young prospects and inserting them into the starting lineup. New York will begin their week against the AL East-leading Toronto Blue Jays as they cling to their slim playoff hopes.

SHARK BITES
  • The Blue Jays are 17-7 in their last 24 games against the AL East.
  • The Yankees are 12-4 on the runline in their last 16 games at home.
  • The Blue Jays are 9-2 in their last 11 games at Yankee Stadium.

It’s not expected to be a pitchers' duel tonight as the Yanks send rookie Chad Green to the bump to face R.A. Dickey in a matchup of hurlers who boast less than terrific stats.

Dickey has really been the odd man out for the Jays in a rotation that has put up some of the best numbers in the majors this year. The knuckleballer owns an 8-12 record, a 4.61 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP this season and was roughed up the last time he met the Yankees’ lineup. The one thing Dickey has going for him tonight is that batters do not tend to do well the first time they see his knuckleball so he should have some success against the young Yankee bats.

Green (1-2, 4.94 ERA) has moved in and out of the rotation since being called up and will face a tough task tonight against a Jays’ lineup he has never faced. The rookie has only pitched 9.1 innings at Yankee Stadium so far and has been lucky to only give up the three runs he has as he’s allowed batters to hit .361 off him at home.
