Tampa Bay Rays vs New York Yankees
Tampa Bay Rays
The Tampa Bay Rays recently took two out of three against the New York Yankees, and have won eight of their last nine games as they are peaking at the right time of the season. The Rays are also 2nd in the American League East standings, directly below the Yankees.
The Rays have some prominent batters in their line-up. Left fielder Randy Arozarena has accumulated a batting average of .269 and four RBIs in the last seven games. The Rays' third baseman Yandy Diaz has recently piled up eight hits and two doubles.
As of September 6, Drew Rasmussen was officially placed on the paternity list for the Rays, but he has been reinstated and is scheduled to start for the Rays in this game. Reports of injuries also come from Wander Franco and Shane McClanahan.
New York Yankees
During the course of the season, the New York Yankees were relatively injury-free. They did the majority of their damage before the All-Star break and were on track to have the best record in the American League. However, since the injuries started to mount, they have lost some of their lead. The team's division rivals, the Rays and Toronto Blue Jays, are now challenging them for the AL East crown.
Center fielder Aaron Judge leads the team with 55 home runs while batting a .301. He also has a career-high RBI total as a Yankee at 118. Anthony Rizzo has also made a huge impact for the Yankees, as he has had 30 home runs and a .225 betting average.
For the upcoming game, Matt Carpenter will be out due to a foot injury. The designated hitter who leads the team in batting average is expected to return in October.
