Today’s matchup is between the Tampa Bay Rays (35-20) and the New York Yankees (29-25). The Rays have won 4 of their last 5 games & the Yankees have won 1 of their last 5 games.

The Rays are starting Tyler Glasnow (RHP), on the mound who is 4-2 on the season pitching a 2.57 ERA, 2.97 FIP, .250 wOBA, K% of 36.2%, BB% of 8.5%, 91.4 MPH average exit velocity, and a 0.93 WHIP in 70.0 innings pitched.

The Yankees are starting Domingo German (RHP), who is 4-3 on the season with a 3.06 ERA, 4.23 FIP, .300 wOBA, K% of 23.3%, BB% of 5.0%, 88.2 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.08 WHIP in 50.0 innings pitched.

The Rays are 14th in the Majors in Relieving Pitching (WAR) while the Yankees are 3rd.

On the hitting side, the Rays have a .315 wOBA and a .318 OBP. The Yankees have a .307 wOBA and a .316 OBP. The Rays have 64 HRs this season while the Yankees have 61 HRs.

Glasnow is a tier above Domingo German (as good as he's been) so far this season. Their hitting is a push while the Yankees have reliable relievers. That being said I feel the Rays are going to win a closely contested game.
