The Yankees have no such bullpen problems. Here are their relievers’ combined numbers through six games: 22 ⅔ IP, 12 H, 4 BB, 27 K, 1.19 ERA.

The problem here is the team's health. Catcher Gary Sanchez hit the 10-day disabled list Sunday with a right biceps strain, while first baseman Greg Bird is day-to-day, after encountering early ankle problems and now battling a nasty flu. Those are likely just short-term setbacks, but the combination of injuries and slow starts offensively have severely hampered New York in the first week of the season: No team has scored fewer runs from the seventh inning on than the Bombers.

21. Miami Marlins (3-3, plus-6)
