New York Yankees vs Baltimore Orioles Probable Pitchers

Clarke Schmidt, the probable starting pitcher for the New York Yankees, brings a 2-0 record and 3.55 ERA into the upcoming matchup against the Baltimore Orioles. Schmidt's ability to miss bats, with 29 strikeouts in 26 innings, could pose a challenge for the Orioles' offense.

Probable starter Grayson Rodriguez is set to take the mound for the Baltimore Orioles against the New York Yankees, bringing his 3-1 record and 4.45 ERA into the highly anticipated matchup. Despite struggling with walks, Rodriguez's 34 strikeouts in 28.1 innings pitched suggest he has the potential to silence the Yankees' potent offense.

New York Yankees Analysis

As the Yankees gear up to face the Orioles, they'll be relying on Clarke Schmidt to take the mound and contain the Baltimore offense. On paper, the Yankees' batting stats suggest they'll be aggressive at the plate, with a league-leading 128 walks and 148 runs scored. However, they'll need to be mindful of their tendency to strike out, ranking 20th in that category. The Bronx Bombers will be counting on Juan Soto to provide the firepower, with his impressive .318 batting average and 7 home runs. If they can get production from their star right fielder and limit their strikeouts, the Yankees should be in a good position to come out on top against the Orioles.

Baltimore Orioles Analysis

As the Baltimore Orioles gear up to face the New York Yankees, their top-ranked offense will be put to the test. Led by Ryan Mountcastle's impressive .319 batting average and Gunnar Henderson's power at the plate, including 9 home runs and 22 RBIs, the Orioles boast a potent lineup that can do damage. With a team batting average of .257 and 147 runs scored, good for 2nd in the league, the Orioles are well-equipped to take on the Yankees. However, their 223 strikeouts, 23rd in the league, and 71 walks, tied for 29th, suggest that they may struggle with plate discipline and working counts. If Grayson Rodriguez can contain the Yankees' potent offense, the Orioles' bats may be able to outslug their opponents and come out on top.
