Although they are on the lookout for second place in the East Division of the American League that occupy the Boston Red SoxThey will need to be put to good use to survive the ups and downs that plagued them in the first half and achieve the goal of taking a playoff spot.
The Yankees still do not know if they will have Luis Severino and Corey Kluber to join the starting rotation in a final stretch that doesn’t look easy for the Bronx team.
This week they will be put to the test, when they play three games in two days against the red-legged players. They will face their legendary rivals again from September 24 to 26.
That will be a challenging month for Aaron Boone’s troop, who will have nine straight games (through October 3) with their top three contenders in the division: Boston, the Toronto Blue Jays and the Tampa Bay Rays, with whom they close. the regular round schedule.
Against Toronto they have another four games scheduled between September 6 and 9 and will have to play six times against the Baltimore Orioles. While the orioles have nothing to look for in the fight for qualification, these clashes will be key for New York.
