New York Yankees Series Preview: Homestand Continues Against The Oakland Athletics

Players To Watch:

Billy Burns:

In 35 plate appearances this season, Billy Burns has yet to strikeout. He is slashing .281/.324/.344 on this young season and wreaks havoc on the basepaths with his blazing speed.

In seven games against the Yankees, Burns has a .375 batting average with twelve hits and a home run. Against tomorrow’s pitcher, Nathan Eovaldi, Burns is 3-for-6.

Alex Rodriguez: 

Yes, the .118 batting average has the fan base in mass panic, but his home run on Sunday means he’s finally starting to come around.

In his career against the Oakland A’s, A-Rod has a career slash line of .285/.362/.513 with 43 home runs and 135 RBI in 185 games played against them.

With two games against lefties this series, expect him to get his fair share of opportunities against a team he has an impressive track record against.
