The string of day games will continue as the Blue Jays come in for a three-game series.
Today: Ivan Nova (1-0, 1.93) vs. Brandon Morrow (10-6, 4.27): Nova's third start will be closely watched. Everyone wants to know if the rookie is for real. He gets another good test (as he did in his first start in Toronto) against this power hitting lineup. Check him out when Jose Bautista comes to bat . Morrow, the Blue Jays say, will have reached his innings limit for the season after this outing. Advantage: Yanks.
Saturday: Javier Vazquez (10-9., 4.86) vs. Mike Rzepczynski (1-3, 6.03): Vazquez makes his return to the rotation. The Yankees think he will regain his form. Not so fast. This could be a slugfest. Advantage: Blue Jays.
Sunday: Phil Hughes (16-6, 4.10) vs. Brett Cecil (11-7, 3.74): Hard to believe given his prolonged struggles, but Hughes (depending on his innings limitation) could win 20 games. For now, Hughes just needs a quality outing--for his own peace of mind. Cecil is a worthy opponent. Advantage: Yanks.
