The New York Yankees travel to Rogers Centre for a four-game set with the last-place Toronto Blue Jays.
New York is trying to hold off the Baltimore Orioles in the American League East, who come into Thursday trailing by a game and a half.
Ivan Nova is on the mound for the series-opener, looking to rebound from a rough outing. In his last start, Nova was hit hard by the Oakland Athletics in Yankee Stadium, allowing three earned runs on five hits in just two and one-thirds innings.
Toronto is just playing out the string, with its only motivation to get out of the division cellar. Brandon Morrow gets the call for John Farrell's club.
Morrow has been solid throughout the campaign, posting an 8-7 record and 3.28 ERA. However, Morrow was also knocked around in his last appearance against the Tampa Bay Rays, surrendering five runs in four frames.
