Needing to get back into the win column the New York Yankees will send super prospect Luis Severino to the mound against the Indians.

By Robby Sabo

New York Yankees Send Severino To Mound Against Tribe1.5 is now the number of games that separates the New York Yankees (61-49) and the Toronto Blue Jays in the AL East. This, after the red-hot Jays sweeping away the Yanks this pas weekend while running their win streak up to eight.

After an off day for both clubs, they’ll get right back at it tonight.

The Jays will host the Oakland Athletics, while the Yankees will invade Cleveland to take on the Indians (51-59).

Luis Severino (0-1, 1.80 ERA) will trot out for his second MLB start and oppose Carlos Carrasco (11-8, 3.76 ERA).

Despite these three-games in Cleveland, the Blue Jays will remain closely tied to the mind of many in that club-house as the Yanks will head to Toronto for another huge series on Friday.

Via ESPN:

“Look, you have to have some perspective,” said Alex Rodriguez, hitting .185 in eight games this month. “There’s no talk of panic for us. We’ve had a very good season so far. We’re in first place for a reason. We like our team. We trust our team.”

Tonight Chase Headley receives the night off. Defensive whiz Brendan Ryan will get the nod at the hot-corner.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 PM ET.
