New York Yankees
The Yankees' pitching has been a strong suit for the team thus far in the season. Domingo German will take the mound for the Yankees, with a 0-1 record, 7.71 ERA, and 0.86 WHIP in 4.2 innings pitched. Despite German's shaky start, the Yankees' pitching staff has an impressive overall ERA of 2.81 and a WHIP of 1.13. This is largely due to the team's strong bullpen, which has allowed only 3 runs in the last 20 innings pitched.
The Yankees' offense is led by Aaron Judge, who has hit 4 home runs, has a .364 batting average, and has driven in 7 runs. The team ranks 10th in the league in batting average, with a .247, but has a slugging percentage of .462 and an OBP of .327.
Oswald Peraza and Yoendrys Gomez are listed as day-to-day, while Trystan Vrieling and Anthony Hall are out for this game.
Shane Bieber will take the mound for the Guardians, with a 0-0 record, 2.25 ERA, and 0.83 WHIP in 12 innings pitched. The Guardians' pitching staff has an overall ERA of 3.90 and a WHIP of 1.17, which isn't as impressive as the Yankees' pitching staff. However, Bieber's dominance in his first two starts of the season provides a glimmer of hope for the Guardians' pitching staff.
The Guardians' offense has been inconsistent, with a batting average of .245 and a slugging percentage of .355. Steven Kwan leads the team in RBIs with 8 and has a batting average of .302. However, Andres Gimenez has been the standout player so far, with a .350 batting average, .422 OBP, and .550 slugging percentage.
There are no injured players on the Guardians' roster.
While both teams have their strengths and weaknesses, the Guardians have an edge in this matchup due to their dominant pitching and consistent batting. Shane Bieber has been dominant in his first two starts of the season and has the potential to shut down the Yankees' offense. Additionally, the Guardians have the home-field advantage, which could play a crucial role in the outcome of the game.
Therefore, based on MLB picks free and MLB experts' picks, we predict that the Cleveland Guardians will win this game against the New York Yankees.
