TORONTO -- Joe Girardi said, as of now, Ivan Nova, coming off two straight poor outings, remains in line to start Tuesday night’s game against the Red Sox. “We haven’t made any changes,” Girardi said.

Should his team find itself in a one-game playoff against the Orioles Thursday for the division title, Girardi said Andy Pettitte, who started Saturday, would be on the mound.

“He’s lined up there, so yes,” Girardi said.
