New York Yankees vs. Tampa Bay Rays: Chase Whitley vs. Jake Odorizzi

The 25-year-old righty makes his season debut as the Yanks take on the Rays.

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

If you can believe it, the Yankees can clinch their fourth straight series victory if they can beat the Rays tonight. It will be Chase Whitley's 2015 season debut, as he comes up to give the Yankees' regular starters an extra day off. Gregorio Petit was optioned to Triple-A to make room for Whitley, so the Yanks will play with a short bench. Unfortunately for fans hoping to see Alex Rodriguez's 660th homer, it will have to be in a pinch-hit role, as Joe Girardi gave him a day off.

You can catch the game on YES, MLB Network, or at 7:05pm. Win thingz!
