This AL matchup includes two teams that made a big time deal right before the trade deadline days ago.
The Cleveland Indians struggled all week, but they are still on top of the AL Central by 3 games.
The New York Yankees seem to be punting on this season; they piled on many prospects at the trade deadline for some big time pieces.
The Cleveland Indians lineup has been lit up here as of late. They are led by all-star shortstop Francisco Lindor.
Lindor is hitting .306 on the season with 34 extra base hits and has knocked in 55 runs this year. Jose Ramirez is currently hitting .296 on the year with 25 doubles and 44 RBIs.
Mike Napoli has been hitting the ball long and often this week. He is currently hitting .253 on the season with 27 home runs and 77 RBIs; both stats are leading the Cleveland Indians.
They look to knock around former Indians pitcher CC Sabathia.
The Indians have Corey Kluber on the mound Saturday and he has been pitching very well lately. He is currently 10-8 on the season with a 3.27 E.R.A. and 145 strikeouts.
Kluber looked very good in his last start against the Oakland Athletics where he picked up the victory. He pitched in 7 shutout innings where he gave up 5 hits. Kluber struck out 7 A’s and he walked 2 in the win.
He looks to keep his quality starts moving forward.
New York Yankees
The New York Yankees lineup took a big hit after dealing all-star Carlos Beltran. They are now led by Didi Gregorius on the year with a .290 average and he has also posted 22 doubles and has knocked in 48 runs.
Brett Gardner has hit 23 extra base hits and has 27 RBIs on the year. Brian McCann now leads this team in home runs with 15; he also has an average of .236 with 42 runs batted in on the season.
The Yankees will have their hands full on Saturday.
The Yankees have big CC Sabathia on the bump Saturday. CC is currently 6-8 on the season with a 4.15 E.R.A. and 86 strikeouts.
He got a no decision in his last start in the Subway Series against the Mets. He pitched in 5.2 innings where he gave up 5 earned runs on 8 hits.
Sabathia walked 3 batters and struck out 5 in the outing. He looks to bounce back against his old team.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
This one will be interesting because the Indians have struggled this week with the Twins, and the Yankees shipped off a lot of their main sources before the trade deadline. I’m taking the Indians in this one.
Corey Kluber has turned his season around since June and I look for him to be able to shut down this below average Yankees lineup. CC has been struggling for most of this season and I see that streak continuing here.
