The New York Yankees and Cincinnati Reds continue their streak at Yankee Stadium tonight. The two teams will play the culmination of a three-game series tonight. The first two games have a few wins back for both teams.
The Reds won the first game of the series on Monday after coming back from three losses in the ninth inning to win 4-3. The Yankees won last night’s competition 7-6 after being eliminated early.
In tonight’s game, New York Yankees midfielder Matt Carpenter had a great catch to steal a long shot from the Cincinnati Reds.
“That catch by Carp” – Yankees
Before playing as a forward for the Yankees this season, Matt Carpenter hadn’t played as a forward since 2014. It was a great start for someone not used to playing off the field.
The Yankees have been looking for more production in the outfield and are likely to buy a midfielder through trade. The team may not need to trade a quarterback if Carpenter continues to perform like this.
Some are saying that Carpenter needs to play every day at this point.
If Carpenter can play solid defensively with his amazing shot count, it will be hard not to play him every day.
What a true midfielder, Matt Carpenter! If Carpenter can persist in making plays like this, the Yankees will be even more dangerous.
3 players that the New York Yankees can target on the deadline
The Yankees will be looking to make some moves on the deadline to try to put the team in the best possible position to make a playoff. Here, we’ll take a look at three players the team could target ahead of the trade deadline.
#3 Willson Contreras, Chicago Cubs
Willson Contreras is a potential commercial contender this season as he is set to hit free agency this season. The Yankees already have solid production from Jose Trevino, but adding Contreras could put the team ahead.
#2 Ian Happ, Chicago Cubs
Ian Happ is a different person Unit players in the commercial market. Given the difficulties of midfielder Joey Gallo, the team could look to add a midfielder on the deadline. Happ will provide the team with a power switch hitter, an above-average defensive player.
#1 Luis Castillo, Cincinnati Reds
You can never pitch enough when it’s game time. While the Yankees spin is one of the best in baseball, the team could certainly use another trump card to add to the spin.
The Cincinnati Reds’ Luis Castillo was one of the teams’ top targets during this year’s trade term. Castillo will provide the Yankees with one of the deepest spins in baseball.
