He was pinch-hit for in the eighth inning of Sunday's regular-season finale after feeling discomfort in the leg. Sano went 1 for 8 with three strikeouts in the series against Detroit and finished the season with a.264 average.
Well, in a way only the Yankees really could, those youngsters took over NY as Aaron Judge pieced together one of the greatest rookie seasons in Major League Baseball history, launching 52 home runs and becoming a folk hero in a matter of seven months.
But for the Twins or Yanks, this October will either be one fleeting moment and goodbye, or it'll be extended to a best-of-five Division Series against the AL Central champion Indians, with a chance to win it all.
First pitch between the Yankees and Twins is scheduled for 8:09 pm ET on ESPN. This is a one-game, winner-takes-all, so home-field advantage could play a key role.
The Twins were coming off a disastrous 103-loss season while the Yankees were transitioning to a younger core.
"Here's why I think the Yankees can make noise: No one can shorten the game like Joe Girardi can with this bullpen", Boone said. I think once Severy throws that first pitch and we get the game rolling, it will all be the same. The Yankees have seven legitimately outstanding relievers, including three at the back-end that are among the game's best. Normally, I wouldn't really put much stock in eight at-bats; it's a tiny sample size.
This will be Santana's ninth career postseason appearance and his third start in the AL Wild Card Game. It's imperative that Ervin Santana and the Twins' bullpen find a way to keep the Yankees in the park, and let their superior defense make plays behind them.
Never known to be a home-run hitting team, the Twins had four players with 20 or more long balls, led by Dozier's 34. Nobody thought they were going to be here. "I feel like we've been playing good baseball, and I expect to play well". These are not the dominant Yankees of the '00s but another upstart bunch like the Twins, whose rebuilding projects led each team back to the playoffs. While Santana has been able to limit his BB:K ratio (0.37:1), his home-run rate is slightly concerning, as he's given up 1.32 HR/9 during the regular season. Cleanup hitter Eddie Rosario batted.290 with 27 homers and an.836 OPS for the Twins. For him to turn in the type of great performance he's capable of, he's probably going to have to avoid giving up the long ball. He's likely to bat No. 3, behind Judge on Tuesday night, part of a battery - along with starter Luis Severino - making its first postseason appearance.
Dellin Betances said Severino's changeup has given him "three plus-pitches", and that he's noticed a big difference in overall demeanor.
