New York Yankees vs. Minnesota Twins: Bryan Mitchell vs. Kyle Gibson

Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

Surprise! I bet you were expecting CC Sabathia to be on the mound today, but it's been decided that the left-hander will be pushed back until tomorrow and Bryan Mitchell will take the mound instead. Throwing Mitchell into the rotation allows the Yankees to have a six-man rotation in order to manage Masahiro Tanaka's time in between starts during their 16- game stretch without an off-day. Now that you know you won't have to watch CC on the mound until tomorrow, tonight's matchup is probably sounding a little better. Now, if only Greg Bird could find his way into the lineup.
