The Yankees landed one of the most exciting acquisitions at the trade deadline, and they'll get to see their shiny new toy in action tonight in Cleveland. Sonny Gray will be tasked with stopping the Yankees' two-game losing streak against one of the best pitchers in the American League in Corey Kluber.
Cleveland has fallen on hard times themselves recently, going through a three-game losing streak and a couple of important injuries. Old friend Andrew Miller won't be pitching in the series after being placed on the 10-day DL with a knee issue. Clint Frazier will be making his first start in Cleveland against the team that drafted him before coming over to the Yankees in the Miller deal last summer.
