David_Price_TOR_July [1]The Rays will send David Price [2] (7-5, 3.29 ERA)  to the mound against CC Sabathia [3] (11-10, 4.83 ERA).

In his career versus the Yankees David Price [2] is 7-4 with a 3.74 ERA in 19 appearances.  He last faced the Yankees at Tropicana field on April 23rd taking the loss  in a 4-3 Yankees victory despite only allowing 3 runs in 8 innings pitched.

Sabathia has won just 4 of his last 22 starts against Tampa Bay since joining the Yankees.  Overall he is 4-11 with a 4.47 ERA . He is 3-7 with a 4.39 ERA at Tropicana Field which is his highest ERA in any major league park.

He last faced the Rays at Yankee Stadium on July 26th and allowed 7ER in 5 innings taking the loss in a Rays 10-6 victory.

Rays Lineup: Desmond Jennings [4] (CF), Ben Zobrist [5] (2b), Evan Longoria [6] (3b), Wil Myers [7] (DH), Sean Rodriguez [8] (LF), Yunel Escobar [9] (SS), James Loney [10] (1b), Jose Molina [11] (C), Sam Fuld [12] (RF)

Yankees Lineup: Ichiro Suzuki [13] (RF), Eduardo Nunez [14] (SS), Robinson Cano [15] (2b), Alfonso Soriano [16] (LF), Alex Rodriguez [17] (3b), Vernon Wells [18] (DH), Curtis Granderson [19] (CF), Mark Reynolds [20] (1b), Austin Romine [21] (C)

Joe Maddon once again reiterated that Wil Myers at DH has nothing to do with a nagging injury to Myers. The decision is solely based on the fact that Myers is not bothered by being the DH.
