A battle of southpaws of very different sorts is on the docket in the Bronx tonight. The Yankees will be giving LHP Wandy Peralta his first MLB start after 242 appearances from the bullpen, as part of a bullpen-heavy effort with the club reeling from injuries and positive COVID-19 tests. The Seattle Mariners have their lefty-swatting lineup out, which is to say Luis Torrens higher in the order than Jarred Kelenic or Cal Raleigh, but it’s fair to expect a wide array of arms from New York’s finest tonight.

Also of note, as the M’s face down the club that is on paper the biggest threat to the Wild Card hunt, the team currently still holding the second Wild Card spot took a serious hit this week that will carry over into the 2022 MLB season.
