This AL matchup includes a history of big time games, but this will not be one.
The Yankees have turned their season around somewhat in the AL East.
The Minnesota Twins seems to be already eliminated from the playoffs at this point.
New York Yankees
The New York Yankees lineup has be led by veterans for the most part this season. They are led in hitting by outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury.
Ellsbury is hitting .284 on the year with 10 doubles and 21 runs batted in. Carlos Beltran is off to another good start this season.
He is hitting .277 on the year with a team high 16 home runs and 44 RBIs. The Yankees acquired Starlin Castro from the Cubs this offseason.
Castro is hitting .257 with 21 extra base hits and has knocked in 26 runs this season.
The Yankees have Masahiro Tanaka on the mound in Minnesota. Tanaka is currently 3-2 with a 3.08 E.R.A and 63 strikeouts.
He was last in action in a loss in Detroit. Tanaka worked in 6.1 innings where he gave up 5 earned runs on 6 hits. He also struck out 4 batters and walked 1.
Tanaka looks to rebound from the bad start he had against Detroit.
The Minnesota Twins lineup has been struggling this whole season, but they have one shining light in Eduardo Nunez. Nunez is hitting .317 on the year with 21 extra base hits and 24 RBIs.
He is paced by the veteran Joe Maurer who is having another typical year for him. Maurer is hitting .285 on the year with 7 home runs and 26 RBIs.
Miguel Sano leads the team with 11 dingers and has knocked in 27 runs. Sano is hitting only .235 on this early season.
This Twins lineup looks to improve in the series with the Yankees.
The Twins have former bullpen pitcher Pat Dean on the mound Friday. He is 1-2 on the year with a 4.17 E.R.A and 28 strikeouts coming out of the bullpen while starting in 5 games.
Dean’s last start resulted in a no decision against the Boston Red Sox. He pitched 6.1 innings where he only gave up 1 earned run on 3 hits.
He also struck out 3 batters and put 4 batters on base with walks. Dean looks to continue his success on the mound against the Yanks.

Free New York Yankees vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
This series will be interesting because the Yankees are playing so up and down this season but the Twins are just so bad. I’m taking the Yankees in this one on the road.
I look for Tanaka to get a nice groove going against this bad lineup that the Twins have. I look for Tanaka to shut this lineup down while the Yankees lineup beats around Dean in this one.
