Blue Jays vs. Yankees: Five things to know, how to watch and prediction as AL East rivals meet in Buffalo


Both teams are long shots to catch the Rays for the division title at this point, but second place and that automatic postseason berth (as well as potentially home-field advantage in the first round) are very much up for grabs.


For the Yankees, Wednesday's starter is officially TBA, though manager Aaron Boone confirmed it will be top prospect Deivi Garcia (0-1, 3.38) over the weekend.


Arguments can be made that DJ LeMahieu or Luke Voit is the Yankees' best hitter, or that Rowdy Tellez or Cavan Biggio is the Blue Jays' biggest offensive threat.


Hernandez, who is having a marvelous season, suffered his injury over the weekend and has not yet been placed on the injured list, though that is expected to happen soon, likely prior to Monday night's series opener.


"He's had a couple of good days and started to ramp up a little bit," Yankees manager Aaron Boone told reporters, including NJ.com's Brendan Kuty , when asked about Judge's status over the weekend.


Baseball America 's Matt Eddy ran the numbers and last season Sahlen Field suppressed runs to 98 percent of the league average, so more or less neutral.
