In seven career games (six starts) against the Yankees, Pivetta has had his struggles with an 0-3 record and 8.78 ERA. He is 0-3 with an 11.57 ERA in three starts at Yankee Stadium.

German has been limited to 2.1 innings since Sept. 7 as he was moved to the bullpen in anticipation of Luis Severino being activated from the injured list. However, German is now returning to the rotation because of Frankie Montas’ shoulder injury.

German last pitched on Sept. 16, working 1.2 scoreless innings against the Brewers in Milwaukee. He allowed one hit, struck out two and walked one.

Against the Red Sox, German has a 2-2 lifetime record and 3.72 ERA in 11 games (nine starts).

He has a patriotic side.

For the Red Sox, Verdugo hit a three-run homer and Tommy Pham had a solo shot. Verdugo and Kike Hernandez had two hits apiece.

Red Sox second baseman Christian Arroyo could return to the lineup Saturday after missing four games with a non-COVID illness.

Arroyo is also versatile.

The Yankees are 11-6 against the Red Sox this season, including 6-2 in the Bronx. New York also has a commanding 43-23 lead in the series since 2019.
