Yankees are Making Things Interesting in the AL East

The New York Yankees looked to be down and out in the American League playoff race, but a late season push has them in an interesting position. The Yanks will look to once again gain some ground against the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Shark Bites
  • The Blue Jays are 7-3 SU and ATS in their last 10 games against the Yankees.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Blue Jays' last six games against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone OVER in three of the Blue Jays' last four games against the Yankees.

Marcus Stroman and Bryan Mitchell are the probable starters for the Jays and Yankees, respectively. Stroman (9-6, 4.58 ERA) owns just one win in his last seven outings and notched just three strikeouts against Tampa Bay on Friday – his lowest total in nearly three months.

Mitchell (0-2, 6.37) was recalled with the expanded rosters and is getting a chance in the rotation spot after Chad Green was sidelined with an elbow injury. The 25-year-old has made three relief appearances against Toronto in the past, allowing five runs in 4 1/3 innings.

Yankee Stadium continues to be a boon for OVER bettors. In the Yankees' last 11 home games, the OVER is 8-3.
