Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays will be happy to see someone other than Michael Pineda. New York’s starter was dominant on Monday, taking a perfect game into the seventh innings and throwing 7.2 innings of two-hit ball.
He struck out 11, walked none, and allowed just one swing to do any damage all afternoon: a solo home run off the bat of Logan Morrison.
The Rays’ offense takes aim at Jordan Montgomery who doesn’t even have a player page on ESPN.com. It looks like this will be the Major League debut for Montgomery, who was drafted in the fourth round in 2014.
New York Yankees
So while Montgomery could be a relative mystery for Tampa Bay, Blake Snell will just be a tough match for New York.
Snell has the kind of stuff that some would describe as “electric” from the left side. At 6’4″ 180, there are some Chris Sale comparisons. Snell throws hard with some nasty off-speed and breaking stuff.
But command can be a problem for the young man. He went 6.2 innings and gave up four earned runs in his 2017 debut against Toronto. Snell allowed just three hits, but he walked five to go along with five Ks.
New York didn’t look bad on Monday but take Gary Sanchez out of this lineup and I’m skeptical that they will be ok in the long term. Those struggles could very well start on Wednesday.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction: Blake Snell rolls.
He should have the confidence to attack most of these hitters, which should open up the zone just a little bit and force New York to swing its way on base. I like Snell’s prospects on Wednesday.

Greedily hoped for a bit of a better price but I sure would not have the Rays as a ‘dog.
