On paper, this looks like a good matchup for the Yankees. CC has been sharp so far. 1.47 ERA. 1.04 WHIP. We've talked about it before, but dating back to last season CC really seems to have figured out how to pitch with reduced stuff. He goes up against a Pirates team that has lost three straight and is missing probably their best player in Starling Marte. On the mound for the Pirates is Tyler Glasnow. A heralded prospect, he's had some ups and downs so far. Eight strikeouts in just over five innings pitched is good. Seven walks and an ERA over 12, less so. Of course the season is very young and stats don't mean much. The Yankees are on the road against a young pitcher who can strike impatient hitters out. I think CC will be fine, but expect a close game dependent on how patient Yankees hitters can be.
