The Washington Nationals will need to tread water while they deal with their injuries, but that may be tough here on Friday, as they face a Yankees team who appears like they are firmly out of their slump.
The Nationals really need to get something going here though, as they are coming off of getting swept by the Braves and they now sit rock bottom in the NL East standings which not many people would have had them in if you asked them in the preseason.
Juan Soto and Stephen Strasburg have been the big injuries and you could really see how this Nats batting lineup fell off without Soto in the mix, but there is some good news, as Soto is now listed as day-to-day and could return for this matchup.
Patrick Corbin is the projected starter here and he comes in here with an ERA over 8 and a 1-3 record, but it is just a matter of time before he turns things around and a matchup with the Yankees might be the perfect spot, as Corbin has a career 1.35 ERA against the Bronx Bombers.
New York Yankees
The Yankees are now 10 and 4 in their last 14 games and memories of them getting boo’d by their own fans at Yankee Stadium is starting to fade, as both the pitching and especially the batting has gotten back on track.
The dynamic duo of Stanton and Judge are both rolling at this point and Stanton especially so, as the slugger is hitting well over .300 and has 9 home runs and has batted in 23 runs and he gets to face a struggling lefty so home run number 10 may very well be on the way come Friday evening.
Jameson Taillon is slated to be the starter here for the Yankees with the righty holding a 5.24 ERA and a 1-2 record and although those are not amazing numbers, he is coming off of an 8 strikeout performance against the Tigers in his last outing.

Free Washington Nationals vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
I do think Patrick Corbin will eventually get his stuff together and will end up having a solid season, but I do not think that solid season starts here on Friday, as the Yankees are starting to roll and with the guys they have in this batting lineup I just think they will have too much for the Nats here.
Jameson Taillon also had a solid outing last time out and as long as Soto remains sidelined, I think he can have a solid outing here that will put the Yankees in a position to win.
