Who’s ready for more Yankees baseball? It’s riveting stuff this season, I assure you. The Yanks are in jeopardy of losing a series against the Orioles in Baltimore, which tells you all you need to know about 2020. A win today would salvage a split of this four game series before the Yanks head north to play the Blue Jays. Speaking of the Jays, the Yanks are tied with them in the division standings. Let’s get to the lineups:

  1. DJ LeMahieu, 2B
  2. Luke Voit, DH

News & Notes

  • This is a planned day off for Gleyber Torres. Nothing to be alarmed about after the shortstop came off the injured list yesterday.
  • Gary Sánchez has been benched. This could last for a few days. He went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts yesterday, a microcosm of his awful season offeensively.
  • The Yankees optioned RHP Miguel Yajure and recalled OF Estevan Florial.
  • It’s not clear why Aaron Hicks is not playing.

YES, WFAN, and WADO are on the call for today’s start time of 1:05 p.m. EDT. Have a nice Sunday, everyone.
