Scouting Report:
Yankees: Rasner will get another turn through the Yankees' rotation on Sunday, when he wraps up the club's three-game series at Camden Yards. The 27-year-old was sharp on Tuesday at Rogers Centre in Toronto, holding the Blue Jays scoreless through six innings on three hits before Adam Lind sent a 3-2 cutter over the right-field wall to send Rasner to a 6 2/3-inning no-decision. Rasner's record is deceiving, as the Yankees have burned him with a lack of run support numerous times. Still, he is winless in his past six appearances. He is 1-2 with a 2.37 ERA in three starts vs. Baltimore this year.

Orioles: Cabrera allowed six earned runs over 4 1/3 innings in his last start, the latest in a string of unsuccessful outings for the right-hander. Cabrera has now allowed six earned runs in four of his last seven starts, a stretch that dates back to July 19. Cabrera allowed the Red Sox offense to jump on him early, scoring three runs in the first two innings, and then was unable to keep the game close after his own offense put up two runs in the third. His night was finished after allowing three runs and then a walk in the top of the fifth. Cabrera has pitched very well against the Yankees, though, going 3-0 while allowing seven combined earned runs in 20 innings.
