Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays 4/9

The New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays will play in the finale of their three game set today in the Bronx. The Yankees may or may not be looking ahead to their weekend series in the Bronx as the team plays host to the Boston Red Sox for the first time in 2015. Let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves as the team still has to get through tonight, hopefully with a win, as the Yankees send CC Sabathia to the mound to face off with the Blue Jays starter Daniel Norris. The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV.

Sabathia is making his first start of the season after starting the last six Opening Day’s for the Yankees since coming over via free agency. Sabathia was limited to just eight starts in 2014 after going down to a right knee surgery that ended his season. Since his major league debut in 2001 Sabathia leads all active major league pitchers in wins with 203 and strikeouts with 2,437.

Norris is the Toronto Blue Jays top prospect and will look to build on a strong spring training that was aided by the Tommy John surgery for Marcus Stroman. Norris got his feet wet last September with his first cup of coffee in the show after being a September call up and will look to make his case to remain in the Blue Jays rotation all season long.

Let’s get a win out of this series and head into the Boston series with some momentum, shall we? Go Yankees!
