Tampa Bay Rays
When you look at the Rays you cant go position by position, otherwise you will get a false impression of this team. They are more than the sum of their parts.
It has not been announced but Ty Glasnow usually follows up Blake Snell in the rotation. The big righty has a huge K rate but he is getting hit this season, including his last start against the Yankees where he gave up five runs in less than three innings. He has yet to pitch even 5 innings in a start this season.
Glasnow is 0-1, 7.04 ERA, and 27 SO. In his last two starts, Glasnow has allowed nine runs over 6 2/3 innings. He is 0-2 with a 5.68 ERA in three career starts against the Yankees.
The Rays lineup is taking on Gerrit Cole. Look for them to be in small ball mode which suits them just fine. If they can scratch across a few it gives them a chance.
New York Yankees
When you combine the power and the ability to connect with the ball the Yankees are the best hitting team in the league. They are second in runs supporting a pitching staff that is good but not elite.
The lone exception is Gerrit Cole. Nobody is worth that kind of dough but the Yankees are getting full value for their investment in the righty. His peripherals are awesome and they have won al five of his starts this season. That is hard to beat.
The bullpen is without Aroldis Chapman but this is still a very deep and dominant group. Chad Green dominates in middle relief and is a difference maker in a lot of games.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction: New York is cheap!
Glasnow has the ability to dominate a lineup but this season you can certainly just wait him out. Even if he gets through five you have to like the Yankees chances of breaking through after that, especially with Cole on the mound. Do you want to fade that streak. I don’t.
