MLB Series Of The Week Preview

MLB Series Of The Week Preview
The American League has gotten out of hand quick with teams jumping out to hot starts while other contenders have found themselves looking for any sort of consistency. Some teams are fighting to get out of the basement while others look to maintain their place atop their division.

AL Matchup Comparisons

This weekend in the American League the Baltimore Orioles will look to continue their winning ways against the Texas Rangers, who have shown no signs of slowing down. On the other side of the coin, the New York Yankees take on the Settle Mariners. Both teams are looking to string together some necessary wins to keep themselves afloat. 

Cano Mariners

Seattle Mariners vs New York Yankees

As both teams sit towards the bottom of their divisions, the Yankees at 4-3 and the Mariners at 3-6, there is really only one player on either team that has made noise so far this season, Robinson Cano.

Cano has hit 5 home runs in 9 games and history has proven that he loves playing in Yankee stadium.

If the Yankees pitching starters cannot hand a lead to the bullpen in this series, the Seattle lineup may be able to upend a struggling rotation and win the series. You can almost certainly pencil in a win when Felix Hernandez faces off against CC Sabbathia in game 2. Outside of Hernandez on the hill, these teams will get a lot of runs across and won't strike out much.

New York Yankees

The Yankees have an incredible bullpen and, even if their pitchers struggle, they may only have to get through the 5th inning before they can hand the ball off and bring home the win

Machado Orioles

Baltimore Orioles vs Texas Rangers

This series features two teams that got off to roaring starts with Baltimore sitting atop the AL East at 7-2 and Texas in second in the AL West at 6-5. The Orioles look to keep their torrid pace at the plate alive but they will be meeting up with the team with the most quality starts in the majors. 

Something had to give in this series and in most instances it is pitching that gets the extra consideration. 

Baltimore Orioles

Baltimore got off to a hot start but now will face off against one of the best groups of pitchers in the league. The Orioles have won their earlier games by batting the other team around but if the Rangers staff continues to minimize their opponents chances of getting the big hit this series could easily go their way.

Texas Rangers

The Texas Rangers are 2-2 at home and will be looking to improve on that as they face some of the best hitters. Manny Machado batting .421. This series is going to be a litmus test for which team game can withstand the adversity. Although Texas has a great team batting average, Adrian Beltre and cast have always found a way to win games. Texas' hitting, which can be viewed as their weak point, is much stronger than the pitching of Baltimore which makes Texas the pick to win the series.
