Preview

The Tampa Bay Rays have been on an impressive winning streak, with a current record of 26-6, 17-2 at home. On May 5, 2023, they will face the New York Yankees, who have a record of 17-15, 6-7 away. In this MLB predictions article, we will analyze the pitching and hitting performances of both teams and make our pick for the winner.

 

Pitching Analysis

The New York Yankees will be starting Jhony Brito, who has a record of 2-3, an ERA of 5.56, a WHIP of 1.41, and has pitched for 22.2 innings. He has allowed 21 hits, 17 strikeouts, and 11 walks. Yonny Chirinos will be starting for the Tampa Bay Rays. Chirinos has a record of 1-0, an ERA of 0.64, a WHIP of 0.57, and has pitched for 14.0 innings. He has allowed 6 hits, 8 strikeouts, and 2 walks.

The Yankees’ pitching performance has been inconsistent this season, with some good games but also some high-scoring losses. Brito has had a few rough outings, allowing 7 earned runs in his last start against the Red Sox. Chirinos, on the other hand, has been dominant in his limited appearances, allowing only 1 earned run in his last 3 starts. His low ERA and WHIP suggest he will be a challenge for the Yankees’ hitters.

 

Hitting Analysis

The New York Yankees have struggled with their hitting this season, with a team batting average of .228, 126 hits, and 39 home runs. Aaron Judge leads the team with 6 home runs and a batting average of .261. Anthony Rizzo has been consistent with a batting average of .289 and 14 RBIs.

The Tampa Bay Rays have been performing well in their hitting, with a team batting average of .280, 207 hits, and 64 home runs. Yandy Diaz has been impressive with 8 home runs and a batting average of .327. Randy Arozarena leads the team with 29 RBIs and a batting average of .325.

 

Injuries

The New York Yankees do not have any injured players for this game. The Tampa Bay Rays have three players with injuries. Pete Fairbanks is on the 15-day injured list and Josh Fleming is day-to-day. Johan Lopez is serving a suspension and will not play in this game.

 

Prediction

Based on the pitching and hitting performances of both teams, we predict that the Tampa Bay Rays will win this game. Chirinos’ dominant pitching performance is likely to challenge the Yankees’ hitters, who have been struggling this season. Additionally, the Rays’ strong hitting performance, especially from Diaz and Arozarena, suggests they will be able to score runs against the Yankees’ inconsistent pitching.

In conclusion, I believe that the Tampa Bay Rays will win this game against the New York Yankees. However, as with any sports game, there is always the potential for an upset.
