The New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles will meet for the first time this season when the AL East rivals take to Camden Yards on Friday. The Yanks and O’s have traditionally competed in low-scoring, tight affairs that have led to the UNDER cashing in 10 of their past 14 meetings.
– Shark Bites
- Manny Machado is 3-for-8 with two runs in his career vs Luis Severino.
- The total has gone UNDER in 16 of the Orioles’ last 18 games.
- The Yankees are 2-5 SU and ATS in their last 7 games against the Orioles.
Luis Severino gets another chance to prove he belongs in the starting rotation after the righty struggled severely in his second season. Severino looked awful in the rotation last season, as he went 0-8 with an 8.50 ERA and a 1.783 WHIP in 11 starts. He performed better after getting demoted and brought back to the big club in the bullpen with a 0.39 ERA in 11 relief appearances.
The Orioles hope that Ubaldo Jimenez looks more like the pitcher in the second half of 2016 rather than the first. Jimenez posted a 7.38 ERA before the all-star break but looked much better after spending some time in the bullpen by posting a 2.82 ERA following the all-star game.
