Yankees at White Sox: Nasty Nate vs. Rodon

New, 474 comments

The Yankees try to build on their scorching start to the second half in Chicago.

Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees send Nathan Eovaldi (10-2, 4.27 ERA) out on the hill to face 2014 2nd overall pick Carlos Rodon (4-3, 4.09). The White Sox are on a massive tear, having won seven straight before losing to the Red Sox yesterday. Both pitchers are also entering Friday's matchup on a positive note. Rodon last pitched in Cleveland, throwing 6.2 scoreless innings and striking out nine with no walks. Eovaldi has a 2.83 ERA since his disastrous June 16th start against the Marlins.

If it is a close game, the Yankees might get reacquainted with David Robertson, who signed with Chicago over the winter. D-Rob struck out 12 batters per nine innings en route to a 2.83 ERA over seven seasons in pinstripes.
