New York attempts to keep the momentum going after taking the second game of their series against Tampa Bay on Tuesday. The Yankees got on the board early with three runs in the third inning and never looked back, ultimately winning 5-0. CC Sabathia picked up the win after throwing five innings and allowing no runs on three hits. Aroldis Chapman also made his return with the Yankees despite not being in a closing situation. First pitch is at 7:10 PM Eastern time on Wednesday night and the game will be televised on MLB.tv, YES Network, and FSN Sun.

Yankees (1-1, 3rd AL East)

Shortstop Didi Gregorius remains on the 10-day DL after suffering a strained muscle in his right shoulder in the World Baseball Classic.

He's expected to return in early May. First baseman Tyler Austin remains on the 60-day DL with a foot injury.

The Yankees will hope to have another gem on the mound with right-hander Michael Pineda making the start. He struggled with a 6-12 overall record and a 4.82 ERA in 2016. Things were even worse against Tampa Bay, where he built up a 7.30 ERA and didn't pick up a victory (0-3).

Rays (1-1, 4th AL East)

Outfielder Colby Rasmus remains on the 10-day DL after suffering hip and groin injuries. He's likely to return in mid-April. Third baseman Matt Duffy remains on the 10-day DL as he continues to recover from left heel surgery. Relief pitcher Brad Boxberger expects to start in the bullpen in a few weeks.

Tampa Bay's offense was limited to just five hits and recorded eight strikeouts in the loss.

Right-hander Alex Cobb only made five starts for the Rays in 2016 due to requiring Tommy John surgery. He played throughout the month of September and finished with a 1-2 record and 8.59 ERA. He's only played in five games in the past two years, and he's hoping that limited action will get him poised to really step up this season.

The New York Yankees come in as -148 road favorites on the money line and the run total is set at 7.5. Tampa Bay is just 5-11 in their last 16 games overall.
