The Detroit Tigers come into this four game set 10-2 on the year, and first in the AL Central division. They're also projected to win 89 games on the seasons per Fangraphs' depth charts projections, and they show no sign of slowing down.
The Yankees look to their old horse in CC Sabathia to halt the Tigers' progress, and he will face off against Alfredo Simon. Carlos Beltran is back in the lineup after missing a couple of games due to injury, and Alex Rodriguez remains in the third spot in the order. You can catch the game on ESPN, YES, or MLB.tv at 7:08 EST.
