New York Yankees
The Yankees are off to a great start with their bats powering the second best offense and their pitching holding up much better than expected. Thus far their best players have been rookies though so you have to wonder if it will hold.
There is no doubting the raw power of Aaron Judge but he has to slow down at some point, right?
When it comes to raw stuff few match Michael Pineda. He has rattled off four straight quality outings and even though he can be wild is not getting burned by bases on ball – just four this season over 5 starts.
He has been noticeably less sharp on the road though so keep that in mind. This is a good CHC lineup too.
The Cubs are playing well, slowly but surely creating some breathing space in the NL Central. Some thought this lineup would be deadly with a full season of Kyle Schwarber but he has gotten off to a cool start.
They are 5th in scoring at the moment and nobody has been crushing it as of yet.
Kyle Hendricks was amazing last year making him one of the prime regression candidates for 2017. So far that has been the case but he is more than good enough to be a winning pitcher.
The Cubs are 3-2 in his starts and in the two losses they only scored 4 runs combined. He might not ever be as good as he was in 2016 but he is not a writeoff.

Free New York Yankees vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
Pineda is more than good enough to dominate the Cubs lineup. They won’t be all that familiar with him and that can help provided he is on his game.
