New York Yankees Take On Price, Blue Jays For AL EastNow that the gift of Matt Harvey and the Mets are over and done with, the New York Yankees can turn their attention to what really matters, the first-place Toronto Blue Jays.

Monday night begins a three-game set against the team who currently enjoys a 2.5 game lead in the AL East over the Bronx Bombers. Adam Warren will look to stretch his arm out even further against the overpowering David Price.

There will still be no Troy Tulowitzki, who continues to deal with a cracked shoulder-blade, and no Masahiro Tanaka, who was slated to pitch Wednesday but will be skipped due to a hamstring injury while running the bases at Citi Field.

The Yanks will look to build on two straight wins while the Blue Jays, on the other hand, will look to avoid their first three-game losing streak in more than 2 1/2 months.

Via Associated Press:

“We’ve been playing outstanding defense, so we were due for a clunker like this,” said pitcher Mark Buehrle, who made a poor relay throw in fourth inning that led to Boston’s first run. “We’ve just got to come back and be ready for the Yankees.”

Speaking of Toronto pitchers, Price has been stellar since coming from Detroit at the trade deadline. He’s 7-1 with a 2.17 ERA in nine starts as a Blue Jay.

Joe Girardi will be thankful to be back in an AL park, as he can now slate Alex Rodriguez in his lineup.

First pitch is slated for 7:07 PM ET from Toronto.
