Game 22: Pineda vs. Porcello

Chase “Deadball Era Power” Headley has not had an extra-base hit since September 27, 2015. That’s a stretch of 24 games and 92 PA with nary a double, triple, or home run. That being said, he is a career .286/.333/.571 hitter against Rick Porcello, with a double and a home run in 15 PA. Could tonight be the night that he rediscovers some semblance of pop?

Game 18: Eovaldi vs. Ramos

The Yankees are at least a bit shorthanded tonight, as both Aaron Hicks and Alex Rodriguez are battling injuries. As of this writing, neither seems capable of playing tonight, but both remain on the active roster. That leaves tonight’s usable bench as Brian McCann and Ronald “Career .400/.429/.600 Hitter” Torreyes.
