The Yankees have made their first splash of the offseason by acquiring the Big Maple, James Paxton, from the Seattle Mariners.

New York Yankees @ Los Angeles Angels (04/27)

Luis Severino (4-1, 2.32 ERA) vs. Andrew Heaney (0-1, 9.64 ERA)

Tonight maybe the most I have struggled with a pick this season. The matchup is obvious: an absolute STUD in Severino against a starter with a 9.64 ERA. This should be an easy Yankee win, but when you look past the numbers, it starts to become tougher. 

Severino is historically weaker on the road, and a long trip with a big time zone jump always poses a challenge. Last year he got knocked around against the Angels because of it. Heaney looked good against the Yankees last year throwing seven strong, only giving up two hits. 

I think the Yankees magic is swirling, and they are in a “win at all costs” mode.  I do not think the Yankees win because of a stellar performance from Severino, but because of a strong bullpen and some late hitting. Yankees win by one, but go with the Angels covering the spread. 

Final Call: Angels +1.5 (-130)
