The New York Yankees are enjoying a good deal of fanfare and confidence thanks to their recent performance. They are at 47-42 and have a pretty decent lineup this year. This year, the Yankees have also shown impressive hitting.
For example, even with his injury in the first half, Starlin Castro tallied 93 hits, 52 runs, 12 homers and 45 RBI. Further, Aaron Judge tallied an impressive 99 hits with 75 runs, 30 homers and 66 RBI.
Anyone can tell that the Yankees are delivering an impressive performance. How well will they fare against their match tonight?
Byron Buxton, the agile center field, got a 10-day disable following a strained right groin. The decision was much appreciated because, in these final months of the game, the management can’t risk sending him up when he can’t give it his best shot. But with Buxton gone, there is more pressure on the team as a whole.
Minnesota has prominent picks this year like Adalberto Meija, Brian Dozier, and Miguel Sano. Meija will be starting the match tonight. In his 65 innings, he has a record of 4-4. The others are also delivering decent performances.
Yet, besides all the positive signs, one still questions whether the Twins have got what it takes to beat a team like the Yankees. Although the trust has been faltering from the New York Yankees as well, there is still a huge chunk of a promise they hold against starters.
