With the anticipation at it’s peak in the AL East race, the Yankees and Blue Jays were set to begin a 4 game series in the Bronx on Thursday night.
However, plans were adjusted as mother nature washed away the series opener forcing a double header upon both teams Saturday.
For now, Friday will be the series opener with the Blue Jays holding a 1.5 game lead over New York in the division.
The likely loser of the AL East will find themselves in the #1 AL Wild Card Spot as the Yankees hold on to that 4.5 games up on the 2nd place Rangers.
Toronto Blue Jays
Without a doubt the Blue Jays struck the best deadline deal of this season when they acquired David Price from the Tigers in a multi player swap.
Price has turned in 7 quality starts since being dealt to Toronto. Posting a 5-1 record since the deal, Price has had plenty of experience against the Yankees this season.
He’s faced them on 3 different occasions this season and his results have varied.
In his first start on April 22nd, Price was lit up for 8 runs on 10 hits in just 2.1 innings of work. Following that, on August 8th Price threw a gem, in a Blue Jays uniform, as he pitched 7.0 scoreless innings.
Six days later he allowed 3 runs on 11 hits.
The Blue Jays offense continues to be the best in baseball as they are averaging 5.33 runs away from home.
New York Yankees
The Yankees once held a 6.0 game lead and looked to be cruising to another AL East Title. While the trade deadline came and went for them, they saw their competition rejuvenate their roster and add key pieces.
That lead quickly vanished and since then both the Blue Jays and Yankees have been bouncing back and forth in the AL East standings.
New York will ask big things from the rookie Luis Severino as he takes the hill trying to extend his winning streak to 4.
Severino has allowed just 2 run combined during his 3 game winning streak and continues to live up to the expectations as the Yankees #1 prospect. Severino pitched his longest outing of the season last time out as he lasted 6.1 innings against the Rays.
