After two straight washouts Thursday and Friday, the Yankees are finally back in action on Saturday afternoon, opening the Subway Series with the Mets at Yankee Stadium. Whether the Yankees playing baseball any more this season is actually a good thing, well, that’s up to you.
After last night’s rainout, the Yankees moved everyone down one day in the rotation, meaning lefty Jordan Montgomery gets the ball. He was the only Yankee hurler to have a real good June, with a 3.77 ERA better than his 4.06 mark on the season.
Taijuan Walker gets the ball for the Mets, looking like one of the real steals of last winter. After inking a three-year, $23 million deal in free agency, all he’s done since then is lodge a 2.38 ERA and 2.93 FIP while seeing career bests in strikeout rate and his lowest walk rate since 2016. He’s not the biggest or sexiest name, but he’s arguably been the best No. 2 in baseball, and he’s nominally the third guy in the rotation!
Rain is in the forecast so who knows what will happen today.
