Game 75: Yankees (39-35) at Jays (42-35)

TORONTO -- The Yankees begin a three-game series against the injury-depleted Blue Jays (no Jose Bautista or Brett Lawrie) on Monday, and if things go the way they did last week in New York, the AL East will have a new leader by Wednesday.

No Derek Jeter on Monday, either -- a scheduled day off for the Yankees' soon-to-be 40-year-old captain. But Mark Teixeira, who had a scare when he was hit on the left foot by a pitch on Sunday, is in there, in the cleanup spot.

Here's the full lineup that will face righty Marcus Stroman, first pitch scheduled for 7:07 p.m.:

Brett Gardner, LF

Carlos Beltran, DH

Jacoby Ellsbury, CF

Mark Teixeira, 1B

Brian McCann, C

Kelly Johnson, 3B

Brian Roberts, 2B

Ichiro Suzuki, RF

Brendan Ryan, SS

Chase Whitley, RHP
