The Seattle Mariners will play the New York Yankees at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, Washington on Tuesday, August 9 at 10:10 p.m. ET.

In another round of MLB action, the Seattle Mariners will face the New York Yankees in Game 2 of their series at T-Mobile Park. Seattle is 59-52 on the season and comes into this game following a 9-4 loss to New York in Game 1. This season, their offense has scored 449 runs with an average of .232 and an on-base percentage of .315. So far this season, Eugenio Suarez has hit 18 home runs with an average of.230 and driven in 58 runs.

PROBABILITY OF PITCHING – Yankees pitcher Gerrit Cole; Mariners pitcher Luis Castillo.

Cole’s biggest issue all season has been his barrel rate. He ranks in the bottom third of all pitchers in barrels (8.4%), which cost him against Seattle, as he gave up three home runs.

Aside from that, Cole excels in every other metric. Opponents have a.210 xBA against the right-hander, and he strikes out more than 30% of the time. Cole also does not walk many batters, and his advanced metrics show that the ace has underperformed this season.

New York, on the other hand, has an overall season record of 71-39 and comes into this game off a 9-4 win over Seattle the night before. This season, their offense has scored 588 runs at a .247 average and an on-base percentage of .332. So far this season, Aaron Judge has 44 home runs with an average of .303 and 98 RBIs.

INJURIES: Matt Carpenter, Anthony Rizzo, Harrison Bader, Luis Severino, Miguel Castro, Giancarlo Stanton, Michael King, Chad Green, Stephen Ridings, Zack Britton.
