When the Yankees and Blue Jays take the field at Yankee Stadium on Thursday at 4:05 p.m. ET, New York's lineup will almost certainly be one step closer to full health. Yankees manager Joe Girardi indicated on Wednesday that veteran slugger Alex Rodriguez will be activated from the 15-day disabled list and rejoin the big league club on Thursday.

5/25/2016 | Season starting to come together for Yankees

5/25/2016 | Though unheralded, Yates a sturdy bridge for Yanks

Since closer Aroldis Chapman made his season debut on May 9, the Yankees' late-game trio of Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller and Chapman has provided an enormous boost. But the starting staff has struggled to reach the late innings. New York's starters entered Wednesday with only 252 1/3 innings (an average of 5.73 innings per start), ranking 11th in the American League. That's why Kirby Yates has been extra valuable.

5/25/2016 | Tex receives shot in neck; MRI not troubling

With Tuesday night's 6-0 win over the Blue Jays, the Yankees are 22-22, .500 for the first time since April 14, when a loss to these very same Blue Jays knocked them to 4-4. Since that loss, the Yankees fell far, dropping as far as eight games below .500 on May 5. But the Yankees have turned everything around, winning 13 of their past 18 -- including six straight -- with a run differential of plus-15 over that span.

5/24/2016 | Eovaldi, Yankees 2-hit Blue Jays, return to .500

Carlos Beltran and Nathan Eovaldi continued their recent hot streaks, while the Yankees' bullpen was stingy as usual as the Yanks beat the Blue Jays, 6-0, and pulled back to .500 for the first time since April 14.

5/24/2016 | Yankees ask Nova to keep Jays in check at home

Toronto won eight times on the road against the Yankees last season, and 13 times overall, which were both single-season highs. It also marked the first time the Blue Jays won a season series in New York since 2003. That was last year, though, and after winning the series opener on Tuesday night, the Yankees will look to reverse the recent trend when right-hander Ivan Nova gets the start Wednesday night.

5/24/2016 | Timely knock by DiMaggio gives Yanks win

5/23/2016 | Steady rotation key to Yankees' winning streak

5/23/2016 | DiMaggio supplies lead; NY can't prevent tie

The Yankees didn't lose Friday. They didn't win, either, but at this point early in a season that's been slow to get moving, they'll take the 9 to 9 tie against the Boston Red Sox as proof positive that at least their bats are heating up in time for the summer.

5/22/2016 | Beltran 'huge' in sparking Yanks' hot streak

5/22/2016 | Yanks encouraged as Pineda shows progress

The Yankees think that they still have more work to do with Michael Pineda, but pitching coach Larry Rothschild described his performance as "better" on Sunday, and that was good enough for the right-hander to walk out of the Oakland Coliseum with his first win since April 6.

5/22/2016 | Yanks' win streak hits three with DiMaggio's help

Not even Mother Nature can stop the Yankees. Thursday afternoon's game in the Bronx pitted New York against the Detroit Tigers, and the proceedings were almost erased by a thunderstorm, but the rain subsided and the home team prevailed once again, 6-5.
