Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Oakland Athletics 5/29

The New York Yankees and the Oakland Athletics will play in the second game of their four game set this week inside the Oakland Coliseum. Tonight the Yankees will send Chris Capuano to the mound to face off with the Athletics lefty Sonny Gray. The game will be played at 10:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV.

  • Capuano has made two starts for the Yankees since returning from the disabled list and has not made it through five innings in either of them. Capuano gave up three runs, two of them earned, in his last start in 4.1 IP against the Texas Rangers, another loss for New York.

  • Gray was hit by a ball in his right ankle in his last start against the Tampa Bay Rays which cause him to leave the start early. Gray was diagnosed with a bone contusion, also known as a bruise, after throwing five scoreless innings.

Which Capuano will we see tonight? Hopefully we see the former Capuano that kept the team in games last season and gave the team a chance to win and not the latter or the 2015 version we've seen to date. If it’s the former then the Yankees are in trouble with a tough pitcher on the mound in Gray while if it’s the latter then he can give the team length saving the bullpen while giving the team a chance to win every time. Again, let’s hope it’s the latter. Go Yankees!!
