Slumping Yankees In Search Of Offense

The New York Yankees find themselves quickly losing ground in the competitive AL East with the club losing five of their past six including each of their past four. The Yankees are averaging just 2.7 runs per game in their past six and have not plated more than two runs in their past three. The Yankees will try and find their offense when they continue their four-game series with the Cleveland Indians Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • Todd Frazier is 1-for-10 with 5 strikeouts in his career against Danny Salazar.
  • The visiting team is 1-4 SU and ATS in the last five games between the Yankees and Indians.
  • The Indians are 15-6 SU in their last 21 games at home with Danny Salazar as the starting pitcher.

New York has been using a six-man rotation but that could soon be cut down to five and Jordan Montgomery is looking like the odd man out. The lefty, who starts in this one, has a 5.90 ERA in his past six starts and has been a contributing reason the Yankees have gone just 1-5 in those outings.

The Indians find themselves much more confident in their starting pitcher Saturday, as Danny Salazar has been untouchable since returning from the DL. In his past two starts, Salazar has allowed just four hits and two runs across 13.0 innings of work.
