Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays 5/3

The New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays will finish off their three-game set tonight in the Bronx with an interesting pitching matchup for us all. The future of Major League Baseball in Marcus Stroman takes the mound for the Blue Jays while the Yankees send out a member of the old guard in veteran left-hander CC Sabathia.

Sabathia’s 2017 season started off strong but he has taken a step back in his last two starts. In his last start the Orioles plated seven runs against him on nine hits limiting the lefty to just 5.2 innings pitched. In Sabathia’s last two starts he has a 0-1 record with a 9.28 ERA. This has to improve starting tonight.

Stroman has been spectacular this season and has been one of the few bright spots for Toronto’s pitching staff to date. Despite having just two wins to show for his efforts Stroman has allowed two runs or less in four of his five starts this season. Stroman’s struggles can be chalked up to a lack of run support from his offense, a trend that hopefully continues tonight in the Bronx.

The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on the YES Network locally, ESPN nationally and on MLB TV wherever you and your device are. You can also listen to the game and follow along with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN.
