Yankees Game Preview 7/18 vs. Cincinnati Reds

Welcome back we sure have missed you. The New York Yankees are back from the All Star Break and are ready to start a three game set at Yankee Stadium this weekend against the Cincinnati Reds. The Yankees will send David Phelps to the mound to face off with the Reds Mike Leake. The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network, MLB TV, and can be heard on the radio with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN.

Phelps may be the Yankees most reliable starting pitcher now that Masahiro Tanaka is on the disabled list, a scary proposition to think about. Not that Phelps has been bad, he has a 3.94 ERA this season, but he wasn't even in the rotation to start the season. Phelps will have eight days off between starts so he will either be extremely sharp or extremely rusty tonight, no in between unfortunately.

Leake last pitched on Saturday and allowed four runs on nine hits against the Pittsburgh Pirates in a six inning no decision. Leake started the month of May with a 2.16 ERA and has since seen it rise to 4.50, a trend the Yankees hope continues tonight.
