Blue Jays tab Rogers, Buehrle for doubleheader

ST. PETERSBURG -- Manager John Gibbons said the Blue Jays will start Esmil Rogers and Mark Buehrle in Tuesday's doubleheader against the Yankees at Yankee Stadium.

Rogers will take the hill on six days' rest in the 1:05 p.m. ET game, a makeup of their postponed May 19 contest, and Buehrle will start the night game on normal rest. Gibbons was asked if the Blue Jays considered calling up another starter as the designated 26th man for the doubleheader, and he said it wasn't their preference.

"We wanted those two guys pitching," Gibbons said. "If we didn't, we'd have done it."

From there, the rotation will continue with R.A. Dickey and J.A. Happ on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively, and Todd Redmond kicking off next weekend's series against the Astros on Friday.
