Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Texas Rangers 7/28

The New York Yankees and the Texas Rangers will play four games to kick this week off inside the Ball Park in Arlington with the second coming tonight. The Yankees are red hot right now while the Rangers are more or less looking towards the 2016 season at this point which is great news for New York. Tonight the Yankees will push back Masahiro Tanaka and Michael Pineda a day while inserting Adam Warren and Chris Capuano into the rotation for a spot start. Opposing them will be Martin Perez who is fresh off the disabled list for the Rangers. The game will be played at 8:05 pm ET and can be seen on Fox Sports 1 and MLB TV.

  • Chris Capuano and Adam Warren will essentially piggy back this game in what is going to amount to a bullpen start. Capuano can go somewhere around five innings if needed while Warren could probably go two innings. 

  • Perez will be making just his third start tonight since coming off the disabled list and will be making his first start in front of his home crowd. Last time out Perez faced the Colorado Rockies and allowed four runs in six innings of work. Perez gave up six hits and four walks while only managing two strikeouts in the loss for Texas.

New York is riding high off a big weekend in Minnesota and a hot start to the second half of the season and will look to keep that going tonight in Texas. New York simply cannot be caught in the American League East Division if they keep winning every single series they play so that is seemingly the plan going forward for the Bombers. That continues tonight in Texas, another game, another series and another victory. Go Yankees!
