The Yankees had an emotional weekend playing in the Subway Series against the Mets while also commemorating the 20th anniversary of 9/11. NYY dropped two of three to the Mets and came out flat in a makeup game against the Twins on Monday before rallying to a 6-5 victory.
Does coming back to beat Minnesota give the Yankees a little bit of a boost coming into their series at Baltimore? It’s hard to get up for an Orioles series, but New York needs a sweep here as they try to make up a 1/2 game deficit for the 2nd AL wild card spot.
New York Yankees
The Yankees seem like a sure thing as -335 favorites against last place Baltimore and with Gerrit Cole on the hill. Cole is in the top 3 in AL Cy Young projections, but also left his last start after just 3.2 innings with a hamstring injury.
Cole is cleared for Tuesdays start – but how healthy is he? At the same time, after throwing just 70 pitches last time out the right-hander is extremely healthy. Cole wasn’t losing any steam down the stretch, striking out 15 in a win over the Angels on September 1st, his last start prior to the injury.
If Cole isn’t 100% with the hamstring, he’d have no problem taking some offensive run support from the Yankees bats on Tuesday night. New York was facing a 5-0 deficit against the Twins in Monday’s make up game before Aaron Judge and Joey Gallo HRs helped them battle back for a 10th inning come from behind 6-5 win.
Coming back against Minnesota has to give the Yankees some momentum coming into the Orioles series. New York also likely isn’t looking ahead as they lost 2 of 3 at home against Baltimore from September 3rd to 5th.
If anybody but Cole was taking the mound on Tuesday the Orioles would have some value, but at the same time if you’re going to face the perennial Cy Young contender what better opportunity than after he’s suffered a hamstring injury in his last start?
Baltimore has only faced Cole one time this season, and it wasn’t pretty striking out 13 times over 7 innings while not scoring a run. That was way back on April 6th though, and the O’s haven’t been playing completely horrible over the past couple weeks.
One thing to remember about Tuesday night’s game is that the Yankees are 2-8 over their last 10. That includes Baltimore taking 2 of 3 in the Bronx at the beginning of September, cashing out as +294 and +283 underdogs.
The Orioles are 5-5 over their last 10, but have had their pitching staff violated the last three games in giving up 44 runs to the Blue Jays(!). A day off on Monday definitely helps replenish the bullpen fluids, but Alexander Wells is making just his 5th start of the season.

Free New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
Cole’s hamstring presents an interesting question, but ultimately it looks like the Yankees are going to do to the Orioles what Toronto did over the past three days. The Blue Jays did drop the opener 6-3, but scored at least 11 runs over the last three games of the series.
It’s a Cole start, which means the Yankees -1.5 run line is still -195. Bank on the Yankees right-hander not wanting to go too deep after suffering an injury last time out and New York just absolutely exploiting Baltimore pitching.
