Both teams sit in the middle of their respective divisions within striking distance hoping to close the gap.
Detroit Tigers vs. New York Yankees
The Tigers and Yankees meet for the 2nd time this season as they begin a 3 game set on Friday. The Tigers come in 5.5 off the pace in the AL Central and find themselves in 3rd place. The Yankees keep on rolling as they sit just 1 game behind Tampa Bay for 1st place in a crowded AL East division.
Detroit will look to get Verlander his first win of the campaign as he’s making his 2nd start of the season.
Verlander sat out nearly 2.5 months with a triceps injury and made his season debut last Saturday against Cleveland. Verlander received a no decision allowing 2 runs on 3 hits. The bullpen couldn’t hold his lead as the Tigers eventually went on to lose 5-4.
Detroit received some good news in terms of their lineup as Victor Martinez completed his rehab assignment and is expected to join the team for the opener on Friday. Martinez, who protects Miguel Cabrera in the line up, will try to get the typically dangerous Detroit lineup going again.
As for the Yankees, they send Adam Warren to hill. Warren brings in a 4-4 record on the season, but has shown some signs of brilliance this season.
However, last time out was not one of those times as his pitch count got the best of him as he wasn’t able to escape the 5th inning. Warren received a no decision in a 5-3 Yankees win. Warren is 2-0 in his career against the Tigers.
Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez will look to become the 29th player to reach 3,000 hits. Rodriguez is just 1 hit away from the milestone.
