7/17 PREGAME NOTES: Mitchell vs. Mejia, Steamy Night at Target Field, Injury Updates

Posted by Brandon Warne , 17 July 2017 · 457 views

It’s sunny and steamy as the Twins prepare to open a three-game set at Target Field against the New York Yankees. The Twins come in 46-45, with losses in four of their last five games including dropping two of three in Houston coming out of the All-Star break. The Yankees come in to open the season series against the Twins with a 47-43 record after splitting a four-game set against the Red Sox at Fenway Park to open the second half.

The Yankees figure to be a bit taxed coming into the series, as they crammed 43 innings into three days against the Red Sox. They didn’t announce Bryan Mitchell as Monday’s starter until late Sunday night, and certainly didn’t get into Minneapolis until the early morning hours on Monday.
