It’s a brand new series…with two 1o p.m. games. Boo. Anyway, here is your lineup!
CC Sabathia LHP
— Yesterday, Brett Gardner won the AL Player of the Week award. He was batting .520/.556/.840 throughout the week.
— Today, Robinson Cano was crowned the Captain of the AL HR Derby Team. He can’t get booed mercifully at Citi Field this year since the Mets are a National Team, so that’s a good thing.
Good morning everyone!
The Yankees had a day off yesterday and sit two games in back of the Red Sox in the AL East as they begin a three game series today in Oakland against the A’s.
C.C. Sabathia(6-4, 3.74 ERA) will face Bartolo Colon(7-2, 3.14 ERA) tonight. Start time is 10:05 ET and it will be televised on YES.
