Ichiro Suzuki, last night's hitting star, getts the day off today, his first since coming to the Yankees on July 23 . . . Robinson Cano, who has appeared in every game this season, starting 111 of them and coming into the one he did not start, on June 15 in Washington, in the seventh inning, will be given a DH day tomorrow according to Joe Girardi . . . Ivan Nova is 2-1 lifetime with a 3.75 ERA vs. the Blue Jays
but is 0-1 at the Rogers Centre . . . Aaron Laffey, who made 11 appearances in relief for the Yankees last year after being acquired in August, has faced them three times in his career as a member of the Cleveland Indians, but not since 2008. He is 0-1 with an 11.74 ERA against his former team, but most of the players in todays lineup have just a handful of at-bats against him and the one who is most familiar with him, Ichiro (6-for-17, .353) is not in the starting lineup.
