The New York Yankees open the 2015 regular season at home, hosting division rivals Toronto Blue Jays. Staff ace Masahiro Tanaka takes the mound, marking the end of CC Sabathia's streak of six straight Opening Day starts. Hopefully today also marks the beginning of Tanaka's own Opening Day streak.
The Blue Jays counter with 24 year old Drew Hutchison, stepping up in place of Marcus Stroman who will miss the season after an ACL injury. Hutchison is 1-2 with a 4.80 ERA in three career starts at Yankee Stadium.
The game starts at 1:05pm Eastern, and will be broadcast on ESPN and YES. Lets go Yankees!!
