The Yankees look just disinterested right now. They aren’t running out ground balls, they’re showing no emotion in their strikeouts, and they’re making errors in the field. They face Aaron Civale, who’s been good this year, with a 2.18 ERA and a 1.17 ERA at home this year.
-German goes for New York in his first start since his injury. He’s been awful this year, with his 9.00 ERA and one of the worst xERA, xwOBA, and xSLG in the Majors. CLE’s offense hasn’t been great, but they’re hitting homers, so that should help tonight. It’s going to be cold in Cleveland, with the Indians’ bullpen being rested and the Yankees’ bullpen being limited. Cleveland’s offense has struggled against righties this year, but the Yankees have been even worse.
-German in his career vs CLE: 0-2, 5.63 ERA (0-2, 9.00 ERA @ CLE). The Indians are 17-5 L22 as a favorite, and this one’s close enough to that to make a play.
