New York Yankees at Minnesota Twins: Bryan Mitchell vs. Adalberto Mejia

New, comments

It's time for the Yankees to declare themselves.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The trade deadline is exactly two weeks from today. The way the next few series play out will likely determine the Yankees' course of action. The club has been in a holding pattern for more than a month now. A series win in the Twin Cities would go a long way.

After a taxing series in Boston, the Yankees send Bryan Mitchell to the mound. The right-hander owns a 5.06 ERA over 16 innings in 2017. This will be his first start of the season. Somehow Mitchell played an inning at first base this year before starting a game. Baseball can be weird sometimes. As for the Twins, Adalberto Mejia gets the start. The rookie southpaw has pitched a 4.43 ERA over 13 starts. It will be interesting how this matchup plays out.

First pitch is scheduled for 8:10 PM and can be seen on YES.
