The Yankees will try to continue their surprisingly solid post-trade deadline play in this Saturday matinee with the Indians. New York is 3-2 and is scoring nearly six runs per game in the small sample of games they've played since selling at the deadline. The pitching match-up features a pair pitchers who have won Cy Young awards while playing for Cleveland, as 2007 Cy Young winner CC Sabathia (4.15 ERA, 4.20 FIP) squares off with 2014 winner Corey Kluber (3.27 ERA, 2.85 FIP).

Notably, Gary Sanchez will again get the start behind the plate after impressing last night. The game begins at 1:05 EST and can be seen on both the YES Network and the MLB Network.
