The Yankees are struggling because they just can’t get the starting pitching they need. Everyone knows the back up the bullpen is dynamite but you have to be able to get there and more often than not the starters are falling short.
The Rangers were playing pretty solid ball until they got swept by the sizzling White Sox over the weekend.
New York Yankees
For the Yankees formula to work they have to hit, so being 21st in runs at under 4 per game is not going to cut it.
It should come as no surprise that A-Rod has fallen off a cliff this season after a productive 2015 season and he has brought Chase Headley and Mark Teixeira with him. Newbie Starlin Castro is leading the team in RBIs and he usually bats eighth. The lineup has to get things going.
Nathan Eovaldi has the big arm but he still struggles to put it all together. He walks almost nobody but often gets hit hard. I wonder if he is too concerned about the occasional walk but either way something has to change with his approach.
The Yankees are 1-3 in his starts this season.
The Yankees bullpen has been very good and will get better once Aroldis Chapman joins the team – and they are already killing it on strikeouts. As expressed above the challenge has been letting this group operate with a lead.
This strength is hard to handicap.
Before the weekend things were looking great for the Rangers, they had just won five of six against surging Baltimore and rival Houston.
The went to the Windy City and the White Sox totally shut them down, Texas scored just four runs over the weekend series, without even facing Sox ace Chris Sale. In my opinion this is just a good team and from time to time they are going to be exposed.
They still might be the best team in the AL West once again though.
Cesar Ramos gets the call as Cole Hamels needs a little time to deal with an injury. He has not made a start in the Majors since 2014. His AAA numbers are just OK this season and when he has pitched in the Majors he has primarily been a reliever.
Not a lot of info to go on here.
The Texas bullpen has been terrible this season – they have six losses already and the peripherals fully support their ineptitude. Hard to tell if they will round into shape or this is just one of those years.
Relief pitchers are funny that way.

Free New York Yankees vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
If Cole Hamels was making the start than the Rangers definitely would have been the play but Ramos is a wild card – there is just not much to know about him, other than the fact that he is not elite.
As a result I think it is best to go with the predictably unpredictable Eovaldi and the Yankees. The over once it is posted is also going to be a good bet as both clubs are able to swing the sticks and the ballpark favours offenses.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: New York Yankees ML
Both teams are coming off a loss heading into Monday night.
I am envisioning a game where New York plays to form getting just enough starting pitching and offensive punch to play the way they want to.
