2012 MLB Season:NY Yankees vs. Toronto Blue JaysJuly 17, 2012 by Marc Jerbs

On Tuesday, the NY Yankees will host the Toronto Blue Jays in the 2nd game of a 3-game series at the Yankee Stadium. The game is set at 7:05PM ET.

The Blue Jays sit at last place in the AL East with a 45-45 record and is 10.5 games behind the AL East leader Yankees. Toronto has only won of five of their last 10 games but has still a chance to make a run in the standings in the AL East.

Toronto knows that New York has big lead in the AL East but they could catch up against the Orioles, Rays and Red Sox in the standings. The Jays still have a shot to get a wildcard spot in the American League if they could beat the other teams in the AL East.

The Yankees continued their impressive run after the All-Star break by taking 2 games against the Angels. In their first games against the Jays, Raul Ibanez's grand slam homerun sealed the win against Toronto. New York has the MLB-best record of 55-34 and has won seven of their last ten games.

Pitcher Brett Cecil will pitch for the Blue Jays, while Yankees' C.C. Sabathia returns to the mound after spending time in the disabled list due to a groin injury.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the NY Yankees as the favorite to against the Toronto Blue Jays. The Jays may have a chance to grab a win if C.C. Sabathia has a rusty performance in the game.
