After taking game one in Toronto, the Yankees will send Michael Pineda to the mound as they go for a series win against the Blue Jays. Pineda got roughed up a bit in his season debut, but still got the win, thanks to an big performance from the Yankees' offense.

Aaron Hicks returns to the starting lineup for the Yankees as they face lefty J.A. Happ. After getting banged up last night, Brian McCann is not in the lineup, while Didi Gregorius also gets the night off. No worries though, as Ronald Torreyes currently sports a 498 wRC+, which is totally sustainable.
