New York Yankees @ Toronto Blue Jays: CC Sabathia vs. Marco Estrada

New, 198 comments

The Yankees turn to their veteran lefty to try and increase their division lead.

CC Sabathia's last outing against the Oakland Athletics went pretty well. The veteran lefty has now won his last three decisions for the Yankees, and he'll get a chance to keep that going against the last place Blue Jays tonight. As the season marches on, the trade deadline draws closer. Will the Yankees need to trade for starting pitching at the end of July in order to stay afloat? Perhaps.

Here's hoping Aaron Judge launches one into orbit. Didi Gregorius also returns to the lineup after sitting out one game due to being hit by a pitch in Baltimore.
