New York Yankees
The Yankees charge into this Monday night matchup flashing an 86-51 record that ranks them 2nd in the AL East. Right now the Boston Red Sox lead the division and own a 7 ½ game lead over New York. The Yanks had done a decent job of keeping up with Boston all season long but have recently begun to lose ground. And while they’re doing all they can to chase down Boston, New York’s 2-3 record in their last 5 games isn’t helping them out one bit. In an effort to ignite a turnaround, the Yankees will be starting CC Sabathia this evening. Sabathia is 7-5 this season and boasts a 3.36 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Miguel Andujar (23 HR, 76 RBI, .301 BA), Aaron Judge (26 HR, 61 RBI, .285 BA), and Giancarlo Stanton (33 HR, 84 RBI, .273 BA).
The Athletics step into this AL pairing with an 82-56 record that ranks them as the second best team in the AL West. Right now the division is heralded by the Houston Astros, who own a 2 1/3 game lead over Oakland. With that in mind, it’s clear that Oakland can make a push for the lead in the division. However, since they’re 2-3 in their last 5 matchups, the Athletics will need a turnaround to do so. Trevor Cahill is the man tasked with delivering the turnaround. Cahill is 5-3 this season and wields a 3.60 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP. This matchup represents the 4th time this season that Oakland has faced New York.
