New York Yankees vs. Texas Rangers: Nathan Eovaldi vs. Cesar Ramos

Be nasty, Nate.

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees traveled to Arlington to kick off a series against the Rangers. Nathan Eovaldi will get the start tonight opposite Cesar Ramos, who hasn't pitched in the majors since 2014. Cole Hamels was meant to start this game, but he is sidelined with a strained groin muscle. Despite striking out a lot of batters (11.21 K/9), Eovaldi has struggled to keep the ball in the park, and has given up 12 earned runs through his first three starts of the season. The Yankees are counting on him to turn things around tonight.

The game starts at 8:05 EST and you can follow along on YES (or ESPN, if you're into that).
