Thursday, April 25 at Yankee Stadium | 7:05 PM ET
Mark Buehrle, LHP (1-0, 5.87 ERA)
Hiroki Kuorda, RHP (2-1, 2.35 ERA)
BLUE JAYS: Buehrle had two poor performances to begin the year but recorded his second straight quality start in his last outing against the Yankees. He allowed eight hits and three earned runs and struck out a season-high seven in the no-decision.
YANKEES: The righty has been sensational and had a scoreless streak of 20 1/3 innings broken up in the eighth inning of his last start against Toronto, in which he struck out a season-high seven.
Friday, April 26 at Yankee Stadium | 7:05 PM ET
Josh Johnson, RHP (0-1, 6.86 ERA)
Ivan Nova, RHP (1-1, 6.14 ERA)
BLUE JAYS: Johnson was cruising against the Yankees when things took a bumpy turn in the fifth. He walked back-to-back batters with the bases full as he struggled with his command. He went on to allow 4 earned runs in 5 1/3 innings and struck out four.
YANKEES: Nova struggled with his control last start, issuing a season-high four walks in a no-decision against Toronto. The righty allowed four runs over five-plus innings and has not completed six frames in any of his three starts.
Saturday, April 27 at Yankee Stadium | 4:05 PM ET
J.A. Happ, LHP (2-1, 3.68 ERA)
CC Sabathia, LHP (3-2, 3.34 ERA)
BLUE JAYS: Happ allowed just one run on four hits during his last start against the Orioles. He allowed a single to the first batter of the game, but he didn't surrender another until the fifth. Despite the strong performance, he was stuck with the no-decision.
YANKEES: Sabathia was kicking himself for a lack of aggressiveness early in his most recent start. He settled in to last seven innings but served up five runs, including three homers. One positive was that his fastball velocity jumped a bit, averaging 91 mph.
Sunday, April 28 at Yankee Stadium | 1:05 PM ET
R.A. Dickey, RHP (2-3, 4.66 ERA)
Phil Hughes, RHP (0-2, 5.14 ERA)
BLUE JAYS: Dickey continues to deal with tightness in his upper back and neck, which has led to a drop in velocity while also making it harder to command the knuckleball. Despite the injury, Dickey has pitched at least six innings in his past three starts.
YANKEES: Hughes continues to see improvement after a slow start, firing seven innings of two-run ball in a no-decision on Tuesday. He took advantage of an aggressive lineup by relying on his offspeed pitches more, particularly his slider and curve.
