Wash your hands of last night's gross loss to the Mariners, because we have a Saturday matinee to get to. Pickles, aka Sonny Gray, gets the ball in an attempt to stop this recent two game skid. Gray has a 96 tOPS+ against his former divisional opponent, meaning he's pitched at about his career average against Seattle. Sonny Gray's career average is pretty good, so expect a solid showing from the righthander.
On the lineup side: Greg Bird is back. After storming through his rehab, the prodigal son returns and forces LOBster lover Todd Frazier to the bench. With a career 12% BB%, Bird might just be the Imperial Walker needed to tip the scales in the Yankees' favor today.
Catch first pitch at 1:05pm EDT, on YES and WFAN.
