Why you should back the Yankees
Despite a rough outing against Seattle last week in New York, Taillon has been a successful starter for the Yankees in 2022. He's 10-2 with a 3.96 ERA and current Mariners hitters are a collective 15 for 83 against him lifetime (.181 average). Last July, Taillon held Seattle to one earned run in seven innings with nine strikeouts in a 12-1 New York victory.
The Yankees boast the most prolific lineup in baseball, leading the league in runs, home runs, and RBIs. Though Giancarlo Stanton (IL) and Anthony Rizzo (day-to-day) are banged up, New York's lineup features very few weak spots. Aaron Judge, in a contract year, is the odds-on favorite for AL MVP with 43 home runs and 97 RBIs. He's on pace to join former Yankees Babe Ruth and Roger Maris in the 60+ single season home run club.
Why you should back the Mariners
Gilbert has been a standout for Seattle this season. He's 10-4 with a 3.09 ERA and averages nearly a strikeout per inning (120 in 128.1 innings). The 6'6" righty gave up six runs in 5.1 innings in his most recent start at Yankee Stadium last week but was brilliant against New York last July, when he held them to one hit in seven scoreless innings.
The Mariners also welcomed back this weekend, Mitch Haniger, who had only played in nine April games before being shelved with COVID and a high ankle sprain. The 2018 All-Star reached base four times in his eight weekend at bats, including two hits and two walks. He provides middle-of-the order support for a team in need of it without likely AL Rookie of the Year Julio Rodriguez, who is set to return from a short IL stint later this week.
