Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays 4/21



Good morning Yankees fans and welcome back to the Bronx, New York. Yankee Stadium will welcome the New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays back today for the third game of their four-game set. In the start this afternoon the Yankees will send left-handed starter Jordan Montgomery to the mound to face off with future Yankee and current Toronto ace Marcus Stroman for the Blue Jays. I love watching Stroman pitch, but I especially love watching Stroman struggle in New York so let’s make both happen this afternoon in the Bronx.

Montgomery heads into the start this afternoon fresh off his first victory of the young season in his last outing. Montgomery held the Detroit Tigers to three runs on six hits in the only victory of the rain-shortened series for New York. Monty was especially tough against the Blue Jays last season as well posting a 1-0 record in two starts with a 0.79 ERA as a rookie.


Stroman had a shorter spring training camp than most which may be the reason behind his wild start to the 2018 season. Stroman has walked 10 batters in 14.2 innings pitched this season, which is way above his career 2.5 walks per nine innings ratio. Walk Gardner, walk Judge and pitch to Stanton, Didi and Sanchez. Fine by me.

The game will be played at 1:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on the YES Network locally and MLB Network for everyone out of the team’s market. You can also follow along on MLB TV, with the MLB At-Bat app and by tuning into the Yankees radio broadcast on WFAN with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman.

Enjoy the game, watch out for dingers, and go Yankees!!
