Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays have lost two in a row to the Yankees. It’s a disappointing reality after sweeping the Blue Jays but one that hasn’t been unexpected.
Tampa Bay doesn’t have the sort of players to compete with New York and Houston in the American League. The same could be said, to a slightly lesser degree, about Boston and Cleveland.
After that, Tampa Bay is as good as most any team in the AL, though. The gap is wide between the top tier and the rest in the AL. Tampa’s challenge is going to be competing the best it can against the big boys, considering it plays New York and Boston in nearly one quarter of its games.
New York Yankees
The Yankees got five shutout innings from the rookie on Friday and now turn the ball over to Luis Severino, who has to expect dominance today against a light-hitting Tampa Bay lineup.
It would be surprising if he doesn’t turn a quality start and even six innings of three-run ball would fail to meet expectations.
The offense, meanwhile, has to deal with Yarbrough, a soft-throwing lefty who will only beat you with deception. I don’t see it going well for the young fella.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction: New York wins for a third time.
The Yankees should get Yarbrough for a homer, or two, at worst. But the reason why I feel like it has to be the Yankees in this game is Severino. I just don’t like Tampa’s chances of scoring more than a run or two.
