New York Yankees @ Toronto Blue Jays: Masahiro Tanaka vs. Marco Estrada

After breaking Toronto's 11-game winning streak, the Yankees try to snatch a home series victory away from the Blue Jays with Masahiro Tanaka on the mound.

Do you have any energy left after last night's thrilling victory? Well, the Yankees and Blue Jays square off again this afternoon with Masahiro Tanaka facing Marco Estrada. Hopefully, the players still have plenty remaining in the tank.

Greg Bird is back in the lineup while Alex Rodriguez receives a much-needed day off. To improve the bullpen with Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller likely out after throwing so many pitches last night, the Yankees recalled Caleb Cotham from Triple-A and DFA'd Chris Capuano since long reliever Bryan Mitchell is now rested and ready. The second coming of Capuano fortunately did not last much longer than the second coming of Esmil Rogers.
