NY has some capable hitters on their roster.
If you look at the numbers - and we're not even getting into advanced analytics - the Yankees ought to make short work of Minnesota in Tuesday's American League wild-card game at Yankee Stadium.
I saw it coming though as I predicted the Twins make a postseason this year all the way back last year.
Spain Reveal The Extent Of Morata's Injury
Morata's injury is a blow but with the global break scheduled, it has come at the best possible time for Chelsea . Morata has suffered a Grade Two tear to his hamstring, which is likely to keep him out for up to six weeks.
The Twins hovered near.500 most of the first three months but were 3-9 from July 23 to August 5. "Our team is going to be good".
While Sano's status was somewhat up in the air, Twins manager Paul Molitor said as recently as Monday that he expected to have Sano at least on the bench for the wild-card game with the Yankees. I can see games, say, when (Masahiro) Tanaka or (Sonny) Gray are on the mound, that he comes to the mound to go to the bullpen in the fourth inning. "Whatever your motivation is, that's fine". "It means a lot", said Santana, who grew up in the Dominican Republic. He was 14-6 with a 2.98 ERA during the regular season. His lone hit came on a 3-0 middle-middle fastball, which he pulled through the left side of the infield.
"I know we didn't win the division (but) we pushed Boston right up to the end", Gardner said. "One of the top two or three right-handed starters in the game this year". "Dallas Keuchel had a lot of success off of us and it continued in that wild-card game".
Didi Gregorius hit 25 home runs this season. Leaving the teams to sneak in being that they aren't the best but won enough to beat the other teams. The 858 runs the Yankees scored were second-best in the majors and their run differential (+198) led MLB, as did the 241 home runs deposited over ballpark fences.
Pep Guardiola Says Benjamin Mendy Out Until April with Knee Injury
Delph has been a peripheral figure since joining City from Villa in July 2015, but he has been recalled to the England squad for this month's final World Cup qualifiers, against Slovenia and Lithuania.
Mauer batted.305 in 141 games after hitting no higher than.277 in his previous three seasons. "So, it's good to be back". "I'm going to watch the swings and the at-bats", Girardi said. "That's what I did, and that's how that worked out and helped me".
Never known to be a home-run hitting team, the Twins had four players with 20 or more long balls, led by Dozier's 34. But he will still have to deal with red-hot Joe Mauer, Brian Dozier, and a surging Byron Buxton. In the 2017 regular season, Santana has compiled a 16-8 record with a 3.28 ERA, 4.46 FIP, 1.13 WHIP, and 7.1 K/9, along with an opposing slash line of.225/.286/.392. For him to turn in the type of great performance he's capable of, he's probably going to have to avoid giving up the long ball.
"Have to be careful with him", Santana said. "The guy is tall".
A rematch with 14-game victor Luis Severino, whom they chased after a 46-pitch third inning on September 20, shouldn't faze a Twins team that improved by 26 wins over a 59-win 2016.
Nawaz Sharif's indictment deferred; children issued non-bailable arrest warrants
The court ordered Sharif, his two sons, his daughter and a son-in-law to appear in court on October 9 to face corruption charges. Sharif accompanied by his political aide, Senator Asif Kirmani arrived at the court amid tight Rangers deployment.
They have lost 10 of 12 postseason games to the Yankees in four division series defeats - 2003, 2004, 2009 and 2010.
