The Los Angeles Angels will look to keep pace in the wild card race this Monday, as they take on the New York Yankees in the Bronx.
Los Angeles Angels
The Angels should come into this game with a bit of a spring in their step, as they just picked up a nice in against the Houston Astros by a score of 3-1 with starting pitcher Reid Detmers playing the role of hero with a fantastic start.
It is pretty tough to talk about the LA Angels this year without talking about Shohei Ohtani who has been an absolute monster, as he just hit his 39th home run, has 86 RBI and is hitting a very respectable .271 average.
Jose Suarez will get the call to the hill and that might put the Angels in a rough spot here, as he has allowed 11 earned runs in his last 3 outings and it is not like he is going against a bad offense here on Monday.
New York Yankees
The New York Yankees are now 9-3 in their last 12 games and it is clear that the additions they have made at the trade deadline have helped and they will now look to keep that roll going against an Angels team who can be a bit hit or miss.
After that nice run of form, the New York Yankees are now just 5.5 games back of the AL East lead, so they do have a realistic chance of winning this division and just a month ago it seemed highly unlikely that they would even get close to Tampa or Boston.
The main guy I would look out for with the bat is a guy they did not pick up at the trade deadline, as Aaron Judge is really starting to heat up and he now has 26 home runs on the season to go along with his solid .285 average.
Gerrit Cole is not longer on the COVID list and will be good to go this Monday for this start, and he should be in another position to destroy this Angels batting order, as he is smart enough to pitch around Ohtani and after that he has the big advantage over the rest of these hitters.
