The prescription for an ailing lineup? A date with the Orioles. The Yankees’ batters are battered, with a huge chunk of the starting nine out at the moment, but they’re on the precipice of sweeping Baltimore nonetheless. They took Jorge López to task yesterday, and they’ll look to do the same to Orioles pitching today in support of Jordan Montgomery.
Ahead of the game, check out Peters analysis of the difficult the situation the Yankees’ infield has been left in, and Josh’s note that there should be no “irregular playing time” excuses left for Miguel Andújar and Clint Frazier. Also, Matt will introduce us to one of the strangest strategic maneuvers the Yankees used in their history, and Joe bounces around the Yankees’ social media.
