The Yankees look to keep things rolling after Brandon McCarthy’s CGSO yesterday, and draw a favorable matchup against the struggling John Danks (9-8, 4.94 ERA) and his 59-68 White Sox. Shane Greene gets the call for New York, who’s been stellar in seven starts as a rookie, going 3-1 wth a 2.91 ERA.
Carlos Beltran will miss his third straight game with a sore right elbow, and Joe Girardi wasn’t ready to call playing him tomorrow a possibility. That said, Beltran did take some swings before this evening’s game. Brian McCann gets a half-day off at DH
Interesting figure, which speaks mainly to the bullpen’s performance – Yankees pitchers own the third-highest K/BB ratio (3.34) in modern MLB history (since 1990), per Elias. Only the 2014 Nationals (3.44 entering today) and 2012 Phillies (3.39) have been better.
