• Center fielder Colby Rasmus received the day off on Wednesday afternoon with tough left-hander CC Sabathia on the mound for New York. Rasmus was mired in a 2-for-41 slump earlier this week until he helped propel the Blue Jays to victory on Monday night with a three-run homer off Yankees closer Rafael Soriano.

• The Blue Jays entered play on Wednesday with a .240 (6-19) winning percentage during the month of August. That will go down as the third-worst record of any month in club history, beaten only September 1978 (.160, 4-21) and May 1979 (.179, 5-23).
