Sunday's Yankees-Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium, scheduled for a 1:05 p.m. start, has been postponed because of rain.

No makeup date has been announced yet. Fans holding paid tickets for the game can use them for the rescheduled game or exchange them for any regular-season game at Yankee Stadium this year (subject to availability).

CC Sabathia was scheduled to pitch Sunday for the first-place Yankees (27-16), while R.A. Dickey had the start for the last-place Blue Jays (17-26).

According to the lineup tweeted by the Yankees, Curtis Granderson was going to start in centerfield and newly acquired Reid Brignac was the starting shortstop.

The Yankees begin an eight-game road trip Monday in Baltimore.
