New York Yankees
The Yankees continue to build their farm system and at the same time are beginning to promote some highly touted prospects from their farm over the past couple of years.
These are guys like Gary Sanchez, Aaron Judge and Luis Severino.
The verdict is still out on all of these guys, but early returns for Sanchez and Judge have been promising, that’s not true for Severino.
In Severino’s freshman campaign he performed well in limited action, posting a 2.89 ERA in 62 innings pitched. His K rate was low and his BB rate was high, but he was getting outs via groundballs, more than 50% of his batted balls.
He imploded during his sophmore year, also in limited time and also with a low K rate and high BB rate. The difference was a 5% drop in his ground balls and his ERA skyrocketed to 5.83.
He still has potential and if he can find his control and induce more soft contact he may pan out, until then, he’s damaged goods.
Ubaldo Jimenez has had one of the weirdest careers and proof that a flash in the pan can float an entire career. Jimenez was electric in 2010 with the Rockies, winning 19 games and posting a 2.88 ERA in an extreme hitter’s paradise.
Since that time, he’s only had one season with an ERA below 4 and has had two season with an ERA above 5; one of which was last year.
But he’ll continue to get work and large contracts based upon a season that was six years ago; he’ll also continue to have flashes where he appears to be his old self.
But those moments are fleeting and a more likely scenario is that he self combusts every fifth day.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:

Free New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
This game will be a shootout, in football we’d say that the last one to have the ball will win this game. That won’t be true in this sense as both bullpens are very good, but maybe the team that jumps out to an early lead will hang on.
Jimenez is a little bit more reliable and project able and the Orioles ride their bullpen to a win.
