Chris Capuano (1-2, 4.50 ERA) will take the mound for the Yankees, making his third start in pinstripes. He gave up 4 runs in a 4-3 loss to Boston in his last start.
Justin Verlander (10-9, 4.66 ERA) will be the starting pitcher for the Tigers. He is the third Cy Young-winning pitcher in a row for the Yankees to face. He is 0-2 with a 4.78 ERA in 6 starts at the new Yankee stadium.
Capuano has certainly bounced around the league quite a bit this year. He’s played for 3 different teams in this season alone. Verlander on the other hand has had a down year compared to his past few seasons, that included a 24-5 record in 2011 when he won both the Cy Young and the MVP.
