NEW YORK -- Against the Toronto Blue Jays this season, the only thing that has stopped the Yankees was a day full of rain. Youth Sebastian Joseph Jersey . The Yankees would have been trying to make it seven in a row against the Blue Jays on Sunday, but rain began to fall in the late morning with no signs of letting up, and the game was postponed before it started. No makeup date was announced. "Its going to rain until probably 9 o clock," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "Its just not going to be playable." The two AL East rivals are not scheduled to meet again in the Bronx until August. Yankees starter CC Sabathia will pitch Monday in Baltimore, followed on Tuesday by Phil Hughes. This means rookie Vidal Nuno will be skipped and remain available out of the bullpen until the Yankees can find a way to work him back into the rotation. Toronto right-hander R.A. Dickey will face Tampa Bay on Monday. Dickey and the Blue Jays may have dodged some bad luck, with the rainout, which was announced more than half an hour before the scheduled start time of 1:08 p.m. He has had outings in the past where wet weather appeared to nullify the effectiveness of his hard, darting knuckleball and leave him without his most effective pitch. The Blue Jays had won four straight before dropping the first two of a three-game series in the Bronx. New York has won its last nine home games against Toronto, since last season, as well as the last six in a row overall against the Blue Jays. "Theres no question theyve had our number. Theyve out played us, too," Toronto manager John Gibbons said. "This has always been a tough place to play." The Yankees have outplayed pretty much everyone lately. Theyve won nine of their last 12 and facing Dickey on a wet day, appeared in a good spot to make it 10 out of 13. "We werent necessarily looking for a rainout," Girardi said. Girardi said that Yankees officials met with umpire crew chief Joe West and consulted their metorologists about the forecast, which Girardi said showed rain falling in New York until after dark. That made the decision a fairly easy one. The delay pushed back Reid Brignacs debut with the Yankees, too. The infielder was acquired in a trade with the Rockies for cash after Colorado designated the infielder for assignment. He arrived Saturday night. He was set to play shortstop and bat eighth. "It was a little disappointing, I was really looking forward to getting the chance to play here today as a member of the Yankees," Brignac said. "Im tickled just to get the chance to be a Yankee." Notes: Torontos only win over the Yankees this season was an 8-4 win on April 21. . Dickey will face Tampa Bay RHP Jake Odorizzi, who is making his 2013 debut. RHP Ramon Ortiz will pitch Tuesday, followed by Mark Buehrle on Wednesday. The Blue Jays skipped the turn of RHP Chad Jenkins. .Yankees OF Curtis Granderson was going to lead off and return to centre field a day after his first start in right. . . Yankees C Francisco Cervelli said he was still hoping to return from a broken hand before the All-Star break. He is on the 60-day DL. . "Waitin on a Sunny Day" by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band was played on the PA shortly before the Yankees announced the postponement. . In Baltimore, the Yankees will send out Sabathia against Freddy Garcia on Monday. The veteran RHP spent the last two seasons as a mostly effective part of the Yankees rotation after a career mostly spent with the Mariners and White Sox. ... The Blue Jays claimed RHP Thad Weber on waivers from San Diego and optioned him to Triple-A Buffalo. Toronto transferred RHP Sergio Santos to the 60-day DL. The 28-year-old had a 2.00 ERA in nine innings for the Padres this season. Cheap Rams Jerseys . Bryant, who signed a five-year, $34 million contract as a free agent with Cleveland in March, reported symptoms on Monday morning, a team spokesman said. Cheap Stitched Rams Jerseys . A lawyer for MLB, Matthew Menchel, confirmed Wednesday the league dropped its case against Biogenesis of America, its owner Anthony Bosch and several other individuals. The lawsuit had accused Biogenesis and Bosch of conspiring with players to violate their contracts by providing them with banned performance-enhancing substances. http://www.wholesaleramsjerseysauthentic...n-howard-jersey . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. SALT LAKE CITY -- Once Joe Williams turns on his full speed, few people have a realistic chance of keeping up with the Utah running back.Williams hammered that point home during the spring. He blew away all other returning Utes players in the 40-yard dash, clocking in at 4.35 seconds. The next-fastest 40 times were posted by receiver Kyle Fulks (4.44), fellow running back Troy McCormick (4.46) and receiver Kenric Young (4.46).I always pride myself on being fast, Williams said. Its one of my (best) qualities. Me and Troy McCormick go back and forth to see whos the fastest kid and I got him this past spring. Ill take that off into the season and see how that goes.Can Williams translate that speed and elusiveness into major production for Utahs offense this season? Thats the vision the Utes have for the senior in 2016.Williams entered Day 1 of Utahs fall football camp Thursday as the leader in the race to replace Devontae Booker as the teams backfield workhorse. He got a taste of what that job entails when Booker went down with a season-ending knee injury against Arizona late last season.Williams started the final three games for Utah. He rushed for 399 yards and three touchdowns on 85 carries in those starts. He finished third on the team in all-purpose yards (561 yards) in limited action.Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said Williams enters fall camp as the lead back for the Utes. McCormick, who sat out last season following knee surgery, will also see time in the backfield and at slot receiver. Whittingham expects to see Williams flourish in his second season in the program.Hes a whole different ball player right now than he was at this time last year, Whittingham said. Much more confident. Obviously, a lot of that is with knowledge of the offense. And, physically, hes much stronger. Hes bigger and hes stronger than when he got here.If Williams can pick up where he left off, it should lend some stability to a Utah offense looking to fill holes at several skill positionss. Youth Ogbonnia Okoronkwo Jersey. The Utes have three players -- junior Troy Williams, redshirt sophomore Brandon Cox and freshman Tyler Huntley -- battling for the starting quarterback job. Utah also must replace its top two receivers from last season.Receiver became an even bigger question mark when Utah announced Thursday that senior Cory Butler-Byrd was suspended indefinitely from the team. Butler-Byrd remains on scholarship but is banned from participating in team activities until the suspension is lifted.Williams knows he needs to be ready to carry a big load and he has been working to mentally prepare himself to be a lead back this season. He has focused on improving his nutrition, getting stronger in the weight room and doing all the little things in practice to improve his running and blocking in pass protection.I came in last year as a JUCO kid and it was little baby steps, Williams said. But this year I feel like I can take off.Teammates feel confident that having Williams and McCormick in the backfield will keep the Utes from suffering any drop-off in the run game. Both players have enough breakaway speed when they find a hole to turn a five-yard run into a 60-yard play. Williams demonstrated that trait plenty of times in his starts late last season. McCormick gives Utah a similar weapon.Behind an offensive line returning four starters and boasting its best depth since joining the Pac-12, that could be a winning formula as the passing game develops. Booker dominated opposing defenses behind the same line a season ago.Its always great to have elusive backs, left guard Issac Asiata said. You never know where Troy and Joe are going to go. Theyre so slippery. Whoever is there, if they can get the job done, its all the same to me.Utahs fall football camp continues through Aug. 20. The Utes open the 2016 season at home against Southern Utah on Sept. 1.
