It's a washout

Sunday's game between the Yankees and Blue Jays has been postponed about 30 minutes before first pitch. No makeup date has been scheduled yet.

CC Sabathia, who was supposed to start Sundday, will open the series against the Orioles in Baltimore at 7:05 p.m. Monday, facing ex-Yankee Freddy Garcia. Everyone else will be moved back a day, meaning Phil Hughes will go Tuesday night and Hiroki Kuroda will pitch the series finale Wednesday.

Vidal Nuno, who was supposed to pitch one of the games in Baltimore, will be skipped and moves to the bullpen for the next few days.

Although no makeup date has been announced, the Blue Jays return to Yankee Stadium for three games from Aug 20-22, and both teams have an off-day on Aug. 19, so that's the date I would bet on for this one to be made up.
