The first weekend of the new look Yankees could not have gone much better. The new additions of Joey Gallo and especially Anthony Rizzo helped the Yankees sweep the Marlins on the road in Miami.
Now, the team will try to keep those good vibes going as they return home for a series against the Orioles.
Tonight in the opener, the least heralded of the deadline acquisitions will take the mound as a Yankee for the first time. Andrew Heaney was a bit of a last minute addition to try and bolster the pitching staff. His numbers so far certainly lead to valid questions about whether he can actually do that, but we’ll see soon enough.
Another interesting note is who will play right field tonight. With Aaron Judge getting a day at DH, Giancarlo Stanton will play right field. Stanton returned to the field over the weekend in Miami, but this will be his first time in right field since 2019. It is the position he spent the majority of his time at while with the Marlins, though.
As for the Orioles, they’ll give the ball to Jorge López tonight. López’s stats this season are, um, not good, and that includes three games against the Yankees, where he’s allowed 11 runs (10 earned) in 10.2 innings.
Go Yankees, go baseball.
