New York Yankees 

New York Yankees are coming off a 2-1 series win Vs the Guardians even though they lost the last game of the series 0-2, the Yankees had such a poor performance in the last game especially Offensively as they had only 1 hit all game and 0 runs scored and are expected to bounce back to ight Vs the Pirates.
