NEW YORK — If the Yankees learn anything from their late summer swoon, it threatens They’re at the top of the AL East standings, a red-hot start that doesn’t guarantee anything.

Who is the starting pitcher?

protector: Cleveland ace Sean Bieber (-8, 2.88 ERA) got the ball in Game 2. Because he starts the first game of the wild-card series on Friday, the Guardians want to give him plenty of rest on the rubber before bringing him back, which means using Cal Quantrill in Game 1 of the ALDS and waiting for more than 10,000 players. Bo started until the second game. He was almost flawless in Friday’s start, allowing just three hits in a 7 2/3 inning against Tampa Bay.


: Southpaw Nestor Cortez ( -4, 2.13 era) is one of the best regular-season stories in baseball, where he made the All-Star Game, where he even broke out with one of his funky “Nasty Nestor” deliveries. Not overwhelming, Cortez succeeds by confusing opponents with various pitch speeds and arm angles. He took a 3-0 lead with one point. 32 ERA in his regular The last five starts of the game. Cortez has faced Cleveland twice this season, shooting well on both occasions, most recently on July 2, when he won a sharp six-inning win at Progressive Field.

What might the starting lineup look like?

Guardian : This is Owen M. Le will likely replace Will Brennan as Cleveland’s designated hitter with lefty in Game 2. Even though Josh Naylor has struggled with lefties this year, clubs may still prefer his first base defense to Miller. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Cleveland stick with the lineup it faced last week against Rice southpaw Sean McClanahan in the wild-card series.

1. Steven Kwan, LF
2. Amed Rosario, SS

3. Jose Ramirez, 3B

4. Oscar Gonzalez, RF

5. Josh Naylor, 1B

6. Owen Miller, DH

7. Andres Jimenez, 2B

8. Austin Hedges, C

9. Myles Straw, CF

: The Yankees intend to launch a similar The lineup produced four points in Game 1, knocking out Cleveland’s starter Quantrill in the sixth. Harrison Bud and Rizzo hit home runs in New York game, with Bud becoming the sixth New York-born player to hit a home run for the Yankees in the playoffs (Lou Grigg, Phil Rizzuto) , Joe Pepitone, Alex Rodriguez and Raul Ibanez are the others).

1. Judge Aaron, RF
2. Anthony Rizzo, 1B

3. Greber Torres, 2B

4. Giancarlo Stanton, DH

5. Oswaldo Cabrera, LF

6. Josh Donaldson, 3B

7. Isaiah Keener-Falefa, SS

8. Jose Trevino, C

9. Harrison Bader, CF
How is the bullpen arranged after the start?

Guardians: in the first With a day off after games, Cleveland has no concerns about its bullpen. The team is still hoping to get the ball close to Emmanuel Clase as soon as possible, but players like Trevor Stephan and James Karinchak will be good in the seventh or eighth if needed.


: When Jonathan Loesgar, Vandy Peral When Tower and Clay Holmes combined, we got a sneak peek at how Boone planned to get through the final inning of Game 1 to replace Cole in the final eight. They combined to leave the Guards scoreless on two hits, which bodes well for the Yankees’ “pen” who is widely suspected to be their Achilles heel.

Any precautions?


: Narrator Nick Sand Delin (Nick Sandlin) had to be excluded from the ALDS roster due to a right major muscle strain, and Cleveland did not deal with any injuries.


: This 13 – The men’s playoff lineup is healthy and playable, despite DJ LeMahieu, Andrew Benintendi, Scott Effross, Ron Marinaccio and Frankie Montas all observers this round.

Who is hot and who is not?

Guardians: Considering the club’s share of offense Quite a rough start to the playoffs, but Kwan and Ramirez showed signs of heating up in Game 1 as they each had multiplayer performances. Despite his doubles, Jimenez has been virtually silent since the playoffs began, going 2 for 2 with seven strikeouts.


: Rizzo’s two-run homer in the sixth inning of Game 1 proved his power hitting. Rizzo hit three home runs in six games in the regular season and playoffs this season against Cleveland. Judge went 0 with 3 strikeouts, a walk and a run in Game 1. Torres was one of the Yankees’ most efficient hitters before battling an illness in the final month of the regular season. He didn’t hit in all three of his first innings.

Anything else fans want to know?

• Major League Baseball is keeping a close eye on Thursday’s weather forecast. Possible rain could alter the schedule and could push Game 2 until Friday. That’s a problem for the Guardians, who might consider giving Bieber a short rest on Monday if the series goes into Game 5. But if Bieber doesn’t start until Friday instead of Thursday, that eliminates the chance that he’ll be able to come back soon on the rubber.

• Boone says he’s not sure the Yankees will How to handle potential rain, although the most likely scenario is to keep Cortez and Severino in line for games two and three. In that case, Kerr could play a potential Game 4 with a regular break. If a Game 5 is needed, the Yankees could consider Jameson Taillon, Domingo German or a bullpen game.
