Player To Watch
Overall, the Yankees have pretty good numbers against Bauer, but one guy who stands out is Chase Headley. In six career at-bats against Bauer, Headley has two hits (.333 BA), and 4 RBI. Look for him to potentially do some damage tonight.
Another guy to keep an eye out for is Mark Teixeira. After missing yesterday’s game due to a cut finger, it is not yet known if Teixeira will be in tonight’s lineup. This is a crucial time in the season, so the Yankees could really use Teixeira’s bat in the lineup right now.
And of course, who could forget about former fan favorite, Nick Swisher. Swisher has been having a pretty lackluster season for the Indians, batting only .207, with 8 homers, and 42 RBI. However, in the last series the Yankees played against the Indians, Swisher went yard, twice. We’ll see if playing against his former team sparks him again.
