Tanaka for the sweep

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

Masahiro Tanaka takes the mound on extended rest as the Yankees look to complete a sweep of the Tigers. The opposing pitcher is Anibal Sanchez, who is on a bit of a hot streak, coming off a two-hit shutout and having not given up a run in his last 20 innings pitched. Best for the Yankee offense to break that streak today, if the team is to extend their winning streak to five games.

Chase Headley gets a routine day off, so Brendan Ryan covers at third base, with Didi Gregorius moving up into the two-hole looking for his third home run in as many days. Garrett Jones comes in for Carlos Beltran in right field.

The game airs on YES and the MLB Network, starting from 1:05 Eastern.
