The New York Yankees lost the first game of a three-game set against the Cleveland Indians last night by a score of 5-2. It was Didi Gregorius’ first game back with the team, where he went 2-for-4. His long-awaited return from Tommy John surgery came faster than anticipated and hasn’t seemed to have missed a beat.
CC Sabathia will be on the bump for the Yankees this evening as he looks for his 250th career win! Here’s the lineup for Aaron Boone’s squad:

Cleveland will put right-handed pitcher Adam Plutko on the mound for just his third start of the season as he was called up from Triple-A today. He currently owns a 6.35 ERA in 11.1 innings pitched.
