Tampa Bay Rays vs New York Yankees Predictions 8/17/2022


The Yankees endured more than their fair share of friction lately, after a season that was relatively free of it. New York lost both the best record in baseball to the Dodgers and the best record in the American League to the Astros, all due to instability caused by injuries.


On Tuesday night against the Rays, the Yankees bats fell quiet, and they dropped their 4th straight game, 3-1. The Rays were able to win with just one error by starting pitcher Nestor Cortes, which resulted in a 3-run home run in the first inning.


The New York Yankees are on top of the AL East division with a win/loss slate of 72-45. 


Domingo German, a right-hander, will take the mound on Wednesday in search of some of the old Yankees’ offensive production.


Since leaving the IL, German made five starts so far this year. This season, he struck out an average of 6.5 batters per inning while allowing 26 hits in 23.2 innings. 


  • The NY Yankees are 1-6 SU in their last 7 matches. 
  • The total went UNDER in 8 of the Yankees’ previous 11 games against the Rays. 
  • The team is 1-5 SU in their previous 6 matches at home.

Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Yankees. The MLB pick for this match is the New York Yankees. New York notched five of the last seven games against the Rays overall and four of the last five home games against Tampa Bay.

Domingo German, the starting pitcher for New York, had two sequential quality starts, giving up just two runs on nine hits in 11 innings. The New York Yankees will win by  predicted score of 6-2.
