Game #50: Yankees at Blue Jays pregame

New York (21-27) at Toronto (22-27)
at 7:07 p.m. ET at the Rogers Centre

Today’s lineups:

NEW YORK
Johnny Damon, CF
Derek Jeter, SS
Hideki Matsui, DH
Alex Rodriguez, 3B
Jorge Posada, C
Robinson Cano, 2B
Bobby Abreu, RF
Melky Cabrera, LF
Doug Mientkiewicz, 1B

TORONTO
Alex Rios, RF
Lyle Overbay, 1B
Vernon Wells, CF
Troy Glaus, 3B
Frank Thomas, DH
Aaron Hill, 2B
Adam Lind, LF
Jason Phillips, C
Royce Clayton, SS

PITCHING: RHP Dustin McGowan

NOTES: C Gregg Zaun (broken right thumb) is scheduled to head to Dunedin, Fla., on Tuesday and he’ll likely begin playing in Gulf Coast League exhibition games beginning Wednesday. Because the GCL season hasn’t started yet, Zaun can get an at-bat in each inning of games. After 3-4 days, Zaun hopes to start catching again, and if that goes well for a few days, he plans on heading to Triple-A Syracuse to continue his rehab. Zaun said the best-case scenario would have him back with the Jays in time for the trip to L.A. and San Francisco on June 8-13. … 3B Troy Glaus was back in the lineup after missing a game due to soreness in his left heel. … The Jays still haven’t announced who will come out of the rotation with RHP Roy Halladay rejoining the group on Thursday. Gibbons did hint that Monday’s off-day will play a role, though. Consider that rookie Jesse Litsch’s next scheduled turn to pitch, after Wednesday, falls on the off-day. Toronto won’t need a fifth starter again until June 9 in L.A.

Thoroughly impressed with McGowans preformance. His changeup was unbeleivable, it had so much movement it almost looked like a curve. Looks like he has finally arrived and couldnt be better timing. The Jays are going to need him to get back into playoff contention. I see why there has been so much hype around him, he definatly has top of the roation stuff. He could very well be the answer too the 3rd starter the jays have been lacking.

Any news on Reed Johnson or Gustavo Chacin? Every thing seems to be focused right now on Greg Zaun.
