Giants vs Yankees Probable Pitchers

Ross Stripling (10-4, 3.01 with Blue Jays in 2022) makes his first start for the Giants after signing a two-year, $25-million contract as a free agent in the offseason. Yankees starter Jhony Brito will be making his major-league debut.

10-4 Record

1.02 WHIP
5.55 SO/W

Brito, 25, spent last season with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and Double-A Somerset, going 11-4 combined with a 2.96 ERA in 26 games (23 starts). He had a 26-21 career record and a 3.71 ERA in five seasons in the minor leagues.

Brito allowed five runs (three earned) and 13 innings in the Grapefruit League during spring training to go with 10 strikeouts and no walks.

Baseball America ranks Brito as the Yankees’ 30th-best prospect.

Stripling has struggled against the Yankees throughout his career. He has a 0-5 record and 4.55 ERA in seven games (four starts).

With the Toronto Blue Jays last season, Stripling was 6-1 with a 3.60 ERA in 15 road games (12 starts). In day games, he went 5-3 with a 3.25 ERA in 13 games (11 starts).

During spring training, Stripling worked 23 innings and was rocked for 19 runs on 40 hits while striking out 18 and walking only one.

Batting Average vs Starting Pitchers

Yankees Batters Batting Average vs Ross Stripling
Aaron Judge .400
DJ LeMahieu .385
Gleyber Torres .364
Isiah Kiner-Falefa .333
Anthony Rizzo .278
Josh Donaldson .250
Franchy Cordero .231
Giancarlo Stanton .200
Aaron Hicks .000
Kyle Higashioka .000
Jose Trevino .000

Yankees center fielder Aaron Judge is 4 for 10 against Stripling in his career while second baseman Gleyber Torres is 4 for 11 (.364) with two doubles and a home run. However, outfielder Aaron Hicks is 0 for 7.

Giants vs Yankees Betting Outlook

The Giants’ win in Saturday’s game ended in dramatic fashion. Closer Camilo Doval got Giancarlo Stanton to hit in a double play to preserve a two-run lead.

Brandon Crawford went 3 for 5 with a double and a home run for the Giants while Joc Pederson also went deep as he was 2 for 4. Mike Yastrzemski and David Villar added two hits each.

Giants catcher Joey Bart was scratched for the original lineup Saturday because of back tightness. He is scheduled to undergo a scan before Sunday’s game so his status is questionable.

Shortstop Anthony Volpe had his first two major-league hits and became the first Yankees rookie to steal bases in his first two career games since Fritz Maisel in 1913. Judge had three hits and his AL MVP odds are +650.
