6/4/2018 @ DETROIT  
6/4/2018 @ DETROIT  
HOUSTON: 2017: 101-61, first place, won World Series.
MANAGER: A.J. Hinch (fourth season).
ADDITIONS: RHP Gerrit Cole, RHP Joe Smith, RHP Hector Rondon.
SUBTRACTIONS: DH Carlos Beltran, RHP Luke Gregerson, RHP Joe Musgrove, RHP Mike Fiers, RHP Michael Feliz, INF Colin Moran.
OUTLOOK: With almost everyone back from last year's championship team, the Astros fully expect to contend for another title. They have a right to be confident with Altuve leading a potent lineup that includes Springer, the World Series MVP, and Correa, a young All-Star shortstop coming off his best season. Their rotation is one of the best in baseball, with Cy Young Award winners Keuchel and Verlander leading the group and new acquisition Cole and young star McCullers following that 1-2 punch. Barring debilitating injuries, the Astros should win the AL West and have an excellent chance to repeat as World Series champs.
NY YANKEES: 2017: 91-71, second place, wild card, lost to Houston in ALCS.
MANAGER: Aaron Boone (first season).
ADDITIONS: OF Giancarlo Stanton, 2B Neil Walker, 3B Brandon Drury.
SUBTRACTIONS: Manager Joe Girardi, 2B Starlin Castro, 3B-1B Chase Headley, 3B Todd Frazier, DH Matt Holliday, LHP Jaime Garcia.
OUTLOOK: New York figures to score a lot and strike out a lot, a reason the Yankees signed the switch-hitting, high-contact Walker during spring training. Drury also was a late addition, enabling New York to start prospects Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar in the minors. Betances faded in the second half last season, struggling with his mechanics and control and diminishing from a four-time All-Star to a mop-up man. After a pair of injury-decimated seasons, Bird is being counted on as a left-handed power bat in the middle of the batting order who can prevent opponents from bringing in right-handed relievers to attack Judge, Stanton and Sanchez. Hicks missed nearly half of last season with oblique injuries but has displaced Jacoby Ellsbury as the regular center fielder. Having never managed or coached at any level, Boone succeeded Girardi and must establish with players and the public that he knows what he is doing.
Yankees face Verlander, Astros

NEW YORK -- The last time the New York Yankees hosted the Houston Astros, they exited Yankee Stadium one win from advancing to their first World Series since 2009.

It never materialized, and Justin Verlander was a significant reason why the Yankees fell short of competing for a championship.

The Yankees get another crack at Verlander on Monday afternoon in the opener of a three-game series with the defending World Series champions.

After attempting to generate offense against Verlander, the Yankees will face unbeaten Charlie Morton and nemesis Dallas Keuchel, whom they beat in Game 5.

"I look at them as a great team and obviously what they're doing from a starting pitching standpoint you can't help but take notice," Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. "We know these next few days we're going to face some great pitching, so we're going to have to be at our best offensively to just try and generate some offense against them.

"So any time you're up against a team like that that's throwing the ball the way they are, it's a little bit of a barometer. We look forward to that challenge. We look forward to playing in those type of games and I look forward to seeing our guys go out there and hopefully do what we've done most of the year, and that's make it very tough on opposing starters."

The Yankees were one win from reaching the World Series after taking Game 5 5-0, but then ran into Verlander for the second time in the American League Championship Series. Verlander struck out 13 in a five-hitter in Game 2 and then helped the Astros stave off elimination when he scattered five hits in seven innings of a 7-1 win in Game 6.

Verlander might have been even better the last time the Yankees faced him on May 1. He had 14 strikeouts on 105 pitches in eight innings, but when Ken Giles replaced him, Gary Sanchez helped the Yankees to a 4-0 win by hitting a three-run homer in the ninth inning.

Besides the three games against the Yankees with the Astros, Verlander is on an exceptional roll since being obtained from the Detroit Tigers shortly before the waiver trade deadline on Aug. 31.

He is 11-2 with a 1.08 ERA in 16 regular-season starts. Including his postseason performances, the veteran right-hander is 15-3 with a 1.36 ERA for Houston.

Overall, Verlander is 6-2 with a 1.08 ERA this season. Since joining the Astros, opponents are hitting .156 against him.

The right-hander's next win will be his 195th. If he gets it Monday, he will join CC Sabathia and Bartolo Colon as the third active pitcher to reach the mark.

Verlander last pitched Wednesday in a 4-1 win over the San Francisco Giants when he allowed one run and three hits in six innings. He struck out nine and issued one walk.

"I was probably a little rusty," Verlander said after his last start. "But overall was able to execute pitches when I needed to against a really good lineup that makes you work hard."

Verlander has completed at least six innings and allowed two runs or less in his last nine outings. It is the longest streak by an Astros pitcher since Mike Scott set the record with 14 in his Cy Young season of 1986.

Verlander's success also goes back to his last month with the Tigers. Since July 30, he is 20-4 with a 1.54 ERA and 230 strikeouts in 193 1/3 innings.

In the regular season against the Yankees, Verlander is 6-7 with a 3.61 ERA in 19 starts. At the current Yankee Stadium, he is 1-4 with a 4.38 ERA in eight starts.

Besides figuring out how to generate offense against Verlander or work his pitch count, the Yankees will attempt to figure out how to get out Jose Altuve, who is hitting .330 and leads the AL with a .400 average (46-for-115) in road games.

While the Yankees improved to 15-3 in their last 18 home games with a 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday, Altuve went 4-for-6 in an eventual 10-9, 14-inning loss at Cleveland. He set a team record with 10 straight hits, but Houston blew a five-run lead in the ninth and a one-run lead in the 13th, and took its third loss in 11 games.

Domingo German was one of the reasons the Yankees had a chance to win in their last encounter with Verlander. German will make his fourth start of the season on Monday and ninth appearance after allowing six runs in 3 2/3 innings of Tuesday's 6-4 loss at Texas.

German faced the Astros after Jordan Montgomery exited after the first inning with a strained left elbow on May 1. He pitched four scoreless innings and was inserted into the rotation for Montgomery, who played catch Saturday and is progressing.
