Jaime Garcia will try to make his case for a spot in the Yankees’ postseason bullpen when he takes the mound on Saturday afternoon against Marcus Stroman and the Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium. The Yanks took Friday’s opener, 4-0, to remain in contention for the American League East title, which the Red Sox were unable to clinch when they lost to Houston on Friday night. Boston’s division lead is now two games, and if the two teams do tie for the division, a tiebreaker game would be held at Yankee Stadium on Monday.
