New York Yankees vs Houston Astros

Houston Astros

With a 3.22 ERA, pitcher Cristian Javier has been one of the Astros' overlooked heroes this season. On Thursday afternoon, he and the Astros will play against Jordan Montgomery and the Yankees.

Yordan Álvarez and Michael Brantley won't be with the Astros, but José Altuve and Chas McCormick have both hit well against lefties this month with a .400+ xwOBA. Yuli Gurriel, Martín Maldonado, and Alex Bregman also have batting averages above .330.

Brantley and Álvarez usually round out the top of the order. However, Kyle Tucker, Jeremy Peña, and others are expected to take up the slack.

New York Yankees

New York has had a 3.32 xFIP for the last month. This is the sixth highest in MLB as Aroldis Chapman and Ryan Weber had a 4.00+ xFIP in that span. The Astros will have to score with Montgomery in the game because the rest of the bullpen is solid.

Yankees pitcher Montgomery has a 3.27 ERA and a 4.19 xERA. Among the Yankees' rotation, Montgomery is a key player. With a hard-hit rate in the 75th percentile, he walks batters only 4.6 percent of the time.

While Montgomery is generally a reliable starter for New York, he struggled in consecutive games after the end of June, allowing four and five earned runs each time.
