Edwin Encarnacion (right big toe) was out for both games of Wednesday's day-night doubleheader at Yankee Stadium. In Game 1, Adam Lind started at first base, while Moises Sierra was penciled in as the designated hitter. Yan Gomes started the nightcap at first base, with Lind serving as the DH.
Right-hander Chad Jenkins will make his first Major League start on Sunday against the Rays in St. Petersburg. Jenkins has appeared in 10 games with the Blue Jays this season, all in relief.
Ricky Romero and Henderson Alvarez will be the starters for Monday's doubleheader at Baltimore.
