Take the Yankees
Cortes Jr. hasn't seen a ton of work this season for the Yankees as a starter, or reliever for that matter, but he's been very good in whatever role the Yankees put him in. On the season he's pitched just 27.2 innings but he's been very impressive in those innings. He has struck out 34 and allowed just 18 hits while posting a 1.95 ERA. The Rays are hitting just .210 against lefty starters and I see them struggling against Cortes. The Yankees meanwhile will be trying to hit Michael Wacha. Wacha has been solid for the Rays this season but he's also the type of pitcher I see the Yankees hitters able to really tee off on. The Yankees are still just 3 games out of a wild card position in spite of their inconsistent play. After a big win last night I like them to carry that momentum into tonight's game. Back the Yankees again in this game.
