On a trade deadline day which saw general manager Brian Cashman do nothing, the New York Yankees head to Chicago to take on White Sox.

Uncharacteristically, the New York Yankees (57-44) have lost two games in a row. Tonight they’ll play the White Sox (49-51) on the South Side of Chicago looking to avoid their first three-game losing streak in over a month.

It’ll be Nate Eovaldi (10-2, 4.27 ERA) put up against lefty Carlos Rodon (4-3, 4.07 ERA).

Friday, of course, marked the 2015 MLB Trade Deadline. Despite some momentum that the Yanks were nearing a deal for San Diego Padres closer Craig Kimbrel, the day came and went with Brian Cashman standing pat, refusing to trade his blue-chippers in the farm.

Although they did acquire Seattle Mariners infielder Dustin Ackley recently, there will be one major addition soon. Pitching super-prospect Luis Severino will make next start with the big club.

The game will be on YES Network at 8:10 PM ET.
