9/16 Game Preview vs. Tampa Bay Rays

The New York Yankees and the Tampa Bay Rays will continue their three game set this week in Tropicana Field. This is Derek Jeter’s final trip to Tropicana Field in his career so hopefully the Yankees can get him a victory or two before he leaves. The Yankees will send Michael Pineda to the mound to face off with the Rays Jake Odorizzi. The game will be played at 7:10 pm ET and can be seen on MY9, MLB TV, and can be heard on the radio with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN.

Pineda has been the recipient of little to no offensive support in his last three starts and has to be getting frustrated with the team. Pineda has pitched well since coming off the disabled list with a shoulder muscle strain but has little to show for it in the way of victories.

Odorizzi ia fresh off his last start that handed him his 12th loss of the season. Odorizzi allowed six runs on five hits in 4.1 IP last time out against these Yankees in the Bronx. Odorizzi is 5-6 with a 2.69 ERA in 16 starts this season at Tropicana Field. 

Go Yankees!!
