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

Posted by Brandon Warne , 17 July 2017 · 358 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.
