Preview: New York Yankees vs. Los Angeles Angels 4/26

The New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim will play the second of a three game set this weekend at Yankee Stadium this afternoon. These same two teams met last night so expect some of the Yankees regulars to be out of action today, namely Derek Jeter. The Yankees will send Vidal Nuno to the mound to face off with Hector Santiago in a matchup of left handed starting pitchers. The game will be played at 1:05 pm ET and can be seen on Fox Sports 1, on the computer with MLB TV, and can be heard on the radio with WFAN.

Nuno is essentially replacing Ivan Nova in the rotation after he decided to get Tommy John surgery and filled in nicely in his last start, his first of the season, pitching five scoreless innings against the Tampa Bay Rays. Nuno scattered three hits, walked two, and struck out six on a serious pitch count and will look to improve on that this afternoon in the Bronx.

Santiago is winless in his Angels starting career but has pitched better in his last two times out there on the mound. Santiago held the Oakland A's and the Detroit Tigers, two pretty good offensive teams, to just three runs (one earned) in 12.2 innings pitched.

Go Yankees!!
