New York Yankees
The Yankees haven’t played since the weekend, when they took two of three from the Oakland Athletics. They were off on Monday, had both of their scheduled games against the Nationals rained out, and were off again on Thursday before starting this series in Kansas City.
So Aaron Boone will start things back up right at the top of his rotation with Luis Severino, who pitched the team’s last game on Sunday. He was sterling as usual, striking out seven and allowing just one run in six innings against a tough Oakland lineup.
Anything short of seven very good innings against KC will be considered a disappointment for Severino in this start.
Kansas City Royals
Between Severino and a completely rested New York bullpen, Danny Duffy has to figure that he has to be nearly flawless in this game to get his team a win.
Duffy finally pitched his team to a win last week when he beat Baltimore but the Indians shelled him the next time out, dropping the Royals’ record in games he pitches to 1–8.
Ned Yost has been complimentary of the way Duffy has thrown the ball, despite the record and an ERA in the mid-5s. I tend to trust what Yost sees.
Duffy isn’t an easy target and I doubt New York hits him hard because of how he keeps power hitters off-balance. I’m betting on this game to be closer than expected.
