New York Yankees
You will hear a lot of ”it’s too early to freak out” when it comes to this New York Yankees team, as they have been historically bad thus far and despite having slugger after slugger in their batting lineup, it appears as though they can’t hit a ball at this point.
The Yankees batting average right now is at .208 which is good for 29th in the league and it certainly seems like this is rock bottom for this batting lineup considering the unreal amount of talent that they have.
The weird thing about this Yankee’s season so far is that they are essentially playing backwards in terms of what people were expecting of them, with their batting lineup struggling and their pitching being rock solid.
That is why I am not so worried about the Yankees not having a listed starter here, as they have been able to keep the Yankees competitive through this brutal batting stretch, as they have held opponents to a 3.44 ERA and a .224 batting average.
The Indians were unable to play their last game against the Chicago White Sox, as the game ended up being snowed out, and Indians fans will be hoping that that extra rest time will have done this team some good which will allow them to bring their A-game here.
The Cleveland Indians batting lineup has also left plenty to be desired, as the loss of Francisco Lindor seems to have seriously hurt this lineup coming in here only averaging a .209 average as a unit.
A lot of their pitching stats look solid, but we do have to realize just how good Shane Bieber has been thus far, as he is certainly skewing some of those stats heavily and importantly for the Yankees he will not be starting in this game.
Those honors will go to Aaron Civale who has not been as good as Bieber, but pretty darn close as he enters the game with an ERA of 2.18 and a record of 3-0, so he does have the stuff to continue that good streak.
Free New York Yankees vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
It is really tough to trust the Yankees at this point, as they are not getting the job done and they are still a bit overvalued in the markets based on who we though they would be this offseason.
I am not saying it is impossible for the Yankees to turn this season around, I just do not see it happening this Thursday against a rock-solid pitcher in Civale and an Indians team who I can see making some noise in the postseason.
I think this game could be finished off in blow out fashion for the home team as well, so it might be a decent opportunity to look at the Indians on the runline to improve upon that price.
