The Yankees salvaged a win on Sunday against the Indians to return home with a 2-4 record against Chicago and Cleveland.
If recent history is any indication, the Yanks should be able to keep things rolling against Toronto this week.
Toronto has dropped seven in a row and eight straight on the road, and is 14 games under .500 for the first time since Sept. 2009.
Alvarez hasn't recorded a decision in two starts against the Yanks and has a 5.25 ERA.
So things are looking good for the Yankees heading into Monday's game, which starts a six-game homestand.
They enter play Monday with a four-game lead over Tampa Bay in the AL East.
WHAT'S NEXT: First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. Myself and Johnette Howard will have you covered from the Stadium. Thanks for reading and following ESPNNewYork.com's Yankees coverage.
