It’s a rubber match at Yankee Stadium and the teams from Seattle and New York are sending out their aces to duel. Starting for the Yankees is Gerrit Cole, and making their team debut for the Mariners is Luis Castillo. For some pre-game reading and an astute breakdown of the arsenal Castillo provides, make sure to check out John Trupin’s breakdown of what makes Seattle’s new ace so special, if you haven’t already.
Notably absent from New York’s starting lineup are Aaron Judge and Jose Trevino, a slight balm for Seattle still missing Julio Rodríguez and Ty France, although they are still expected to return soon.
