For the second Friday in a row, the Yankees play a night game. This time, however, it will be televised. Thank goodness for that.
Masahiro Tanaka gets the start tonight. His outing makes for appointment viewing after the right-hander said he planned on introducing a knuckle-curveball into his repertoire. Kento had the breakdown here, and it’s well worth the read before the game.
The Yankees will also run out a lineup that looks eerily similar to the Opening Day one. It’s just missing Aaron Hicks and Gary Sanchez.
That squad will take on Matt Boyd and the Tigers, who trot out this lineup:
