A potential no-hit matchup tonight in Toronto:

Former Blue Jay A.J. Burnett (6-2, 3.28 ERA) is starting for the Yankees against Brett  Cecil (5-2, 3.81). 

Burnett, who pitched in Toronto from 2006-2008, has fared well at the Rogers Centre, with a career record of 22-9. He is 2-1 vs. his old team. While pitching for the Marlins, Burnett no-hit the Padres in 2001. The Blue Jays either strikeout or homer and Burnett is a strikeout pitcher. 

Cecil has blossomed this season, but is 0-1 with an 11.25 ERA in two lifetime starts against the Yanks.


On May 3, Cecil took a perfect game into the seventh inning against the Indians. He issued a one out walk and later allowed a single to Jhonny Peralta. Cecil allowed one hit in eight innings.
