Players To Watch
One player to watch for on the Yankees’ side is Jacoby Ellsbury. Ellsbury has been on a bit of a hot streak lately, going 3-for-5 with a two-run homer in yesterday’s game. He also has a .615 lifetime batting average against Porcello, so he is definitely someone to look out for.
A must-watch on the Tigers’ side is obviously Miguel Cabrera. As we all know, Cabrera has a ton of power, and can hit one into the seats at any time. McCarthy and the Yankees would surely like to limit that power, and keep his bat as quiet as possible this series.
