Yankees lose six players to the Rule-5 draft, acquire one

The Yankees’ minor league systems is deep even beyond the flashy prospects, and as a result, they had six players they chose not to protect on the 40-man roster selected by other clubs in the Rule-5 draft. Only one of the six Yankees, RHP Nick Green, was selected in the Major League phase, while five players were selected in the Triple-A phase. The Yankees chose one player of their own in the Triple-A phase in RHP Adonis De la Cruz. A friendly reminder for those who are not familiar with the Rule-5 draft, the teams who select these players must keep them on their active roster of either the Major League or Triple-A team, depending on the phase of selection, or be offered back to their former club. Here is a breakdown of Cruz and who the Yankees lost:

New York Yankees @ Boston Red Sox (04/10)

Luis Severino (2-0, 1.38 ERA) vs. Chris Sale (0-0, 0.82 ERA)

The New York Yankees are underdogs ladies and gentleman. For the first time this season, the Bronx Bombers money line is actually a positive number. Currently the line has the Boston Red Sox at -144 and the Yankees at +130. I get it, the Yankees have been floundering of late and the Red Sox have looked great. To top it off they have their ace going at home, they should be favorites.

Unfortunately for the majority of the public betting on the Sox, the Yankees also have their ace going, and he has looked fantastic. Clearly the bookmakers are aware of this, and have the over/under at seven runs. With these guys on the mound that is still enticing to go low, but if some of the recent questionable relievers come out who know what will happen. I expect a close game, and I expect the Yankees to take advantage of a favorable spread for the first time this season. Grab the Yanks at +1.5 (-175) even with that hefty line, and enjoy what should be an awesome pitching duel.

Final Call: Yankees +1.5 (-175)
