Why you should back the Yankees
Right fielder Aaron Judge is off to a sensational start. Judge is a physical freak at 6'7 and 282 pounds. The three-time All-Star can hit for a good average with the power to unload on any pitch he likes. Judge is ninth in the majors in batting average (.318), first in homers (24), and tied for third in RBIs (48). On June 12, he went 3-for-6 with three singles and two runs scored.
First baseman Anthony Rizzo is another slugger in this potent Yankees offense. Rizzo has outstanding power and run-producing qualities. He is a solid defender and provides a nice throwing target. The three-time All-Star is also tied for 11th in the MLB in home runs (15) and tied for 10th in RBIs (41).
Why you should back the Rays
First baseman Ji-Man Choi is a patient hitter who isn't overly aggressive at the plate. Choi has good power and can hit the ball into any gap. The 31-year-old leads the team in RBIs (31) along with five home runs and a batting average of .284. Choi is currently on an 11-game hitting streak.
Outfielder Randy Arozarena is a speedster on the diamond for the Rays. Arozarena uses his quickness to his advantage on both sides of the game. He is tied for sixth in the MLB in steals (12) while being able to cover plenty of ground in the outfield. The 2021 AL Rookie of the Year has a batting average of .268 with seven dingers and 31 RBIs. He's also first on the team in hits (60).
