Minnesota Twins vs New York Yankees
The Twins sit with a 67-64 record overall coming into this game against the Yankees. The Twins have historically struggled against the Yankees for years, and have dropped three of their first four games against the Yankees this season. Here, they will look to turn things around against one of their biggest nemeses.
Right-handed pitcher Joe Ryan will be the starter for the Twins. He is currently 10-7 on the season with a 3.88 ERA. In his last start, he lost to the Red Sox, giving up five runs on eight hits in five innings. This will be Ryan's first career start against the Yankees. The Twins pitching staff has the 18th-ranked ERA in Major League Baseball.
The Twins have three players on the injured list after the team's last game. Tyler Mahle is dealing with right shoulder inflammation, but he will be back to face the Yankees. Ryan Jeffers will return in late September due to a fracture on his right thumb. Jorge Polanco is out of the lineup because of left knee inflammation. Unfortunately, the team has not informed us of his return date yet.
New York Yankees
The Yankees stand tall with a record of 80-54. The pitching staff has a 3.32 ERA, ranking fourth in the league, and a 1.11 WHIP, which is good for the first spot in MLB. Aaron Judge led the Yankees in the game against the Rays on Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep, and contributed to their win over the Twins on Monday as well.
Right-handed pitcher Gerrit Cole is currently 10-7 on the season with a 3.28 ERA. In his 27 starts, he has 204 strikeouts and 40 walks. He gave up two earned runs on six hits in seven innings in his last start. In his only appearance against the Minnesota Twins this season, Cole got roughed up, allowing seven runs on eight hits in 2.1 innings.
There are some injury updates from the Yankees. Andrew Benintendi is out of the lineup due to inflammation in his right wrist after a swing on Friday. He may miss the rest of the season. Anthony Rizzo is also out of the commission with a lower back injury. Although the team needs them back ahead of the postseason, officials have not yet revealed their exact return dates.
