Game 151: Yankees vs. Blue Jays

TORONTO — Will Canada see history? Well, there’s at least a chance. Joe Girardi was asked pregame today if there was any way he’d put somebody else in if there’s a save situation so that Mariano Rivera can get the saves record at Yankee Stadium (where the Yanks begin an eight-game homestand Monday). The answer was what you’d expect: Not a chance.

Girardi did nail down his rotation for early next week: Ivan Nova will pitch on Tuesday, CC Sabathia and Phil Hughes will start Wednesday’s doubleheader (not sure what order yet) and Bartolo Colon will go on Thursday. As for the lineup? Joe wants to give some guys a little rest.

“The guys have been going so hard, I figured we have an important 10 days coming up, try to give them a little bit of a blow,” Girardi said. “[Curtis Granderson] and [Derek Jeter] have really struggled against [Brandon] Morrow in their career, and I just thought today would be the day.”

Without further ado …

Weather: A gorgeous afternoon here in Seattle, and shaping up to be a nice evening as well. It was a little overcast on the way in, but that doesn’t really matter much with the retractable roof.

This and that: Nick Swisher (left elbow) feels better, but not to the point where they want to play him in the outfield. He has no qualms about playing first base, though. … Austin Romine makes his first MLB start tonight. He caught Phil Hughes in rehab starts at Double-A. … Francisco Cervelli’s MRI came back negative in New York, but he’s still having concussion symptoms. He likely won’t rejoin the Yankees on this trip. … Russell Martin (right thumb) is better and may be the emergency catcher tonight. The hope is that he could catch tomorrow. … Joe Girardi said that everyone is available in the bullpen, including Boone Logan (dead arm). … Girardi is sticking with Jeter, not Brett Gardner, atop the lineup against right-handers.

Quotable

On Phil Hughes: “We want some distance from him tonight. He’s going to have to shut them down because of who we’re facing tonight. There’s usually not a lot of runs scored off of Felix, so he’s going to have to be on top of his game.” – Girardi.

Nick Swisher, on the AL East race: “You hear it every day. You see it on SportsCenter every day. It’s crazy, we haven’t been playing as well as we’ve wanted to, obviously, but we’ve been lucky Boston’s been in that same boat a little bit. Then again, Tampa’s coming up. They’re playing well. It’s going to be an exciting rest of the season. It’s going to be a lot of good baseball games, a lot of big games, and I know everybody in here is ready for it.”
