The New York Yankees start the 2018 season in an away contest against the Toronto Blue Jays. Here’s what you need to know to watch the game on TV and online.
It’s MLB Opening Day and it’s time to kick off the 2018 season with the New York Yankees making a trip to Canada for an opening series against the Toronto Blue Jays.
2018 could be a very good year for the New York Yankees after they surpassed all expectations in 2017 and made their way to the postseason as a young team at the start of what was projected to be a rebuilding period. The Yankees were 18-13 in spring training (.581) but once again it looks like they’ll be chasing the Red Sox (Spring Training: 22-9, .710) once again in the AL East. RHP Luis Severino (2017: 14-6, 2.98 ERA, 193.1 IP, 230 strikeouts) has the start for the Yankees on Opening Day, marking his first career start. Severino had a solid 2017 season that put him in third place for the AL Cy Young Award. Severino saw three games in spring training, with 17 strikeouts over 13.1 innings of work.
The Blue Jays finished fourth (76-86) in a competitive 2017 AL East. The Blue Jays struggled in spring training, going 13-18 as they worked to figure out a lineup and rotation that worked amid injuries.Toronto’s lefty J.A. Happ (2017: 10-11, 3.53 ERA, 145.1 IP, 142 strikeouts) also marks his first career Opening Day start, largely due to Marcus Stroman’s injury. Happ pitched in 6 games for 20.2 innings with 16 strikeouts.
