Blue Jays-Yankees Preview

(AP) -- Masahiro Tanaka is returning to the mound for a test run with the New York Yankees.

He'll start for the first time since July 8 on Sunday in the finale of a four-game home series against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Tanaka (12-4, 2.51 ERA) has been out for 2 1/2 months because of a partial tear in his right elbow. The Yankees want him to pitch twice before the season ends to determine if he can avoid Tommy John surgery, which would sideline him for 2015.
