New York Yankees vs Philadelphia Phillies Predictions 3/31/2022


The Philadelphia Phillies will try to bounce back from their last 12-run loss to the Bronx Bombers on Tuesday when these teams meet each other again in BayCare Ballpark for a rematch on Thursday afternoon after a 1-7 loss to the Detroit Tigers yesterday.


The Phillies took 7th place at 6-5 in the Grapefruit League Conference with a team percentage at .545 and a game behind first-place while gaining 64 runs but lost 76 for a run difference of -12 on the year.


In losing to Detroit, Philadelphia 3rd Baseman Bryson Scott had one hit while Pitcher Damon Jones struck out 2 batters in pitching for 1.1 innings.


The Phillies’ outfield duo of Nick Castellanos and Bryce Harper played well this spring training as Castellanos recorded 4-8 while Harper has gone 6-18 while driving two home runs. Philadelphia 31-year-old veteran Shortstop Didi Gregorius hit 13 home runs and 54 RBIs since he joined the squad two years ago.


This pre-season, Gregorius went 5-19 with a couple of homers and 4 RBIs in reinforcing the infield for the Phillies. As a squad, Philadelphia nailed a team batting average of .252, a slugging percentage of .448, an OBP at .319, and a team ERA of 6.12 on the season.                  


New York Yankees vs. Philadelphia Phillies. The MLB Pick for this contest is New York. Despite the Phillies showing some strong batting skills, they will have difficulty swinging their bats against the stingy pitching staff of the Yankees.


Pitcher Aroldis Chapman is getting back to his old self in dominating the mound which will give RF Bryce Harper and company a very bad day. Prediction: The New York Yankees will win at 5-2.
