Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Toronto Blue Jays 4/14


And here we go for the final time this series, the New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays. These two teams have entertained the fans with two good games, depending on where you’re sitting of course, and I expect nothing less from today’s start, especially when you consider the starting pitching matchup. The Yankees will send Nathan Eovaldi to the mound this afternoon looking to improve off his first start of the season while the Blue Jays counter with their young ace and live arm Marcus Stroman.

Eovaldi was far from the “Great Eovaldi” that some here on the blog call him in his first start of the season allowing five runs on six hits against the Houston Astros. Houston tagged Eovaldi for two home runs in his five innings of work and the young righty will have to be much better tonight in Toronto if he wants to escape with a victory against this tough Blue Jays lineup.

Stroman is already making his third start of the season tonight for Toronto and is coming off a bad start against the Boston Red Sox last time out. Stroman allowed five earned runs to their division rivals in just 5.1 innings pitched and will look to bounce back tonight inside the Rogers Centre. Stroman owns a career 4-1 record with a 2.43 ERA against New York so this will be a tough tasks for the Yankees bats tonight in Toronto.

The game will be played inside the Rogers Centre at 7:07 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV.


Go Yankees!
