OpenThread: Twins @ Yankees

MLB: New York Yankees at Los Angeles Angels Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

I thought we might like an OpenThread for the Twins/Yankees game.

I’m going to be watching at the gym because I had a lazy weekend.

The Yankees have moved Gleyber Torres off short. He’s had a tough time lately, with 4 errors in the last 7 games. Most of his errors are throwing, so maybe cutting down on the distance he has to throw might help.

On the season he has a -1.7 UZR, near average. I don’t know, I wouldn’t be making this move off a bad week, cause it looks like panic.

Tyler Wade has played 110 innings of short, with no errors. He’s played all over the field. This moves DJ LeMahieu to third and puts Gio Urshela on the bench. LeMahieu hasn’t played a lot of third this year. It will be interesting.

Twins are 11-14 over their last 25 games. Our old friend, Josh Donaldson, will have to have a good series if the Twins are going to help us out.

John Gant has a 1-3 record and 4.85 ERA in 11 games, 4 starts this year.

Luis Gil, who we saw last week, has a 1.42 ERA in 4 starts, 19 innings.

With those two starting, there will be a lot of relief innings going on.
