The Yankees announced that tonight's game against the Orioles has been postponed. No makeup date has been announced.

A.J. Burnett was scheduled to make the start for New York. Assuming Burnett, who is 2-0 this year with a 4.09 ERA, takes the hill Wednesday, he will be working on five days rest. His last start was April 7, when he went six innings and allowed two earned runs in a 4-3 win against Minnesota.

The postponement also means Orioles manager Buck Showalter's first trip of 2011 to New York will be pushed back another day. Showalter made noise this offseason when he took shots at Derek Jeter in an article in Men's Journal.
