PREGAME NOTES:

  • Jorge Posada makes his first start since April 25 and just his tenth start behind the plate this season. You can bet the ranch that the Jays' base runners will test that shoulder early and often.
  • Jason Giambi remains out of the starting lineup for the second straight game with a sore foot as a result of being HBP on Tuesday night.
  • Johnny Damon is on an offensive rampage going 27 for 57 (.474/.508/.649) over his last 14 games and has raised his BA for the season from .250 to .310.
  • Chien-Ming Wang is a lifetime 4-2, 3.98 ERA, 1.27 WHIP in 8 starts against the Jays, including 1-0, 2.57 ERA, 1.14 WHIP in 2008 when he pitched his team to a 2-1 victory over Roy Halladay on Opening Day.
    Dustin McGowan is a lifetime 2-2, 5.21 ERA, 1.45 WHIP in 10 games (6 starts) against the Yanks, including a no decision in the opening series of the season (6.0 IP, 2 ER).
