Who is starting tonight for the Yankees?
LHP CC Sabathia (3.59 ERA/4.71 FIP, 1.179 WHIP), who tied a season-high with seven innings of work against the Blue Jays his last time out. The veteran left-hander allowed just two runs on three hits, but both home runs came via the long ball, which has been an issue for Sabathia as of late. Sabathia has allowed home runs in five consecutive starts.
