Yankees Game Today: Yankees vs Blue Jays Odds, Pitching Matchup, Starting Lineup
Yes, Virginia, there is a New York Yankees game today.
No, we’re not sure how to feel about that, either.
The Bombers are coming off a two-game road sweep in Philadelphia which, if not for a miraculous, game-tying DJ LeMahieu three-run blast in the ninth inning of Game 1, would’ve been a completely lost weekend.
Can this team get on track? They’ll have to do so in uncomfortable territory, heading on the road to a Triple-A ballpark to battle Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and the Blue Jays, who exclusively bash.

Yankees vs Blue Jays Odds Today
The Blue Jays are heavily favored in this series opener against the reeling Yankees, settling in at -190 money line with a spread of -1.5. With the Bombers’ recent struggles firmly in the mind of oddsmakers, the pitching matchup also does them no favors.
Yankees vs Blue Jays Pitching Matchup
Though New York has been struggling with anyone and everyone, they’ve drawn an especially tough matchup here against Hyun-Jin Ryu. Fellow southpaw Jordan Montgomery, having a soild season that stands out as genuine progress, will toe the rubber for the Yankees.
Yankees Starting Lineup
The Yankees have messed with their starting lineup far too often for comfort this year, a problem exacerbated by Brian Cashman’s obsession with lineup balance while concurrently failing to stock the lineup with strong lefty hitters.
Tuesday’s edition, at the very least, includes everyone you want to see in there against a tough lefty. Give it your best shot, Chris Gittens!
Aaron Judge Injury
Judge is a full go after he completed some awkward swings on Saturday, then was benched on Sunday while battling back spasms. Hopefully the off day has done him some good, because if you thought this lineup was lacking with him…
Yankees vs Blue Jays Prediction Today
Montgomery has long been a “bend, don’t break” pitcher, but this Blue Jays team tees off on soft-tossers. Unfortunately, this feels like another rude awakening; 8-2, Toronto.
