Series Preview: Up Next, The Yankees Face The Seattle Mariners

The Yanks go west to play the Mariners. Here is the list of probable pitchers and the win probability for the Yankees as listed by Fangraphs.

Jul 20, 2017, at SEA with a 52.9%  win probability for Luis Severino against Felix Hernandez
Jul 21, 2017, at SEA with a  57.8% win probability for Masahiro Tanaka against Andrew Moore
Jul 22, 2017, at SEA with a 53.3%  win probability for CC Sabathia against Ariel Miranda
Jul 23, 2017, at SEA with a 50.9% win probability for Luis Cessa against Sam Gaviglio

As you can see there are some good matchups for the Yankees and the problems that have dogged the Mariners might play into the Yankees hands in this series. However, the Yankees have struggled on the West Coast this year and therefore cannot be complacent when it comes to anything. This will be first full series with the new trio obtained in the massive trade during the last series so we will all be interested to see if they will help steady the ship and get the Yankees back on track when it comes to winning games and series.

I feel this is a good chance for the Yankees and to be honest I expect them to win at least three of the four games. My guess, this is the best chance the Yankees have to rack up the wins and put pressure on their rivals in the AL East. I hope they seize it with both hands.
