PREGAME NOTES:

Yanks have been held to 3 runs or less in six of the nine meetings between these teams in 2008.

Derek Jeter is 12-for-19 (.631) over his last four games.

Robinson Cano is 6-for-15 (.400) since his pal Melky Cabrera was sent down to Scranton.

Darrell Rasner is a lifetime 2-0, 4.91 ERA, 1.45 WHIP in 2 starts against the Jays. He is a nightmarish 2-9, 6.04 ERA, 1.70 WHIP over his last 14 games (13 starts) since May 26.

A.J. Burnett is a lifetime 5-2, 2.85 ERA, 1.06 WHIP in 8 starts against the Yanks. He is a ridiculous 3-0, 1.23 ERA, 0.92 WHIP over his last 4 starts against them.

GODZILLA RETURNS: Hideki Matsui has been activated off the DL and will be in the Yankee lineup for the first time since June 22. Justin Christian has been sent back down to Scranton to make room on the active roster.
