Reliever Joba Chamberlain will pitch another rehab inning Tuesday, but Girardi was unsure whether it would be with the Gulf Coast League Yankees or Class A Advanced Tampa. The right-hander threw two scoreless innings Saturday with the GCL Yankees as he works to return from Tommy John surgery last June and an open dislocation of his right ankle in March.
The Yankees entered their series against Toronto with 38 regular-season games remaining games at Yankee Stadium, and 18 of them are against the American League East rival Blue Jays and Red Sox. They had played the Blue Jays only twice this season, dropping both games of a two-game set in Toronto in May.
On this date in 1904, Highlanders pitcher and future Hall of Famer Jack Chesbro stole home in the bottom of the 10th inning against Detroit to score the game-winning run in a 9-8 New York victory.
