After a weekend off due to the Mets coming down with multiple coronavirus cases, the New York Yankees will be returning to action on Tuesday where seven straight interleague games face them. Returning with the Yankees will be Aaron Judge, who was on the IL with a calf strain. He wound up only missing a week of games.
The Bronx Bombers will go down to Atlanta to play a two game set with the Braves on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Yankees swept the Braves in a two game set at home on August 11th and 12th. They will look to do the same this week.
Although the team has lost their last three games, odds seem to be in the favor of the visitors. The Yankees have Gerrit Cole on the hill on Tuesday, with Masahiro Tanaka taking the ball on Wednesday.
Thursday will actually be another off-day for the Yankees, before heading home to Yankee Stadium where a five game set in three days with the Mets awaits.
Friday and Sunday will feature seven-inning doubleheaders, with the Yankees considered the home team for one game each day. Saturday will be a regularly scheduled nine-inning game with the Yankees as the home team.
The five game set over the weekend will make-up two of the three postponed games against the Mets. The third will be made up on September third, a date where both teams originally had scheduled off-days. After they play the Mets on September third, the Yankees won’t play a NL opponent until the end of the season. They conclude the season with a three-game set against the Marlins in New York.
After a few days rest, the Yankees are ready to hit the road again and resume the chase for 28.
