For New York, Miguel Andújar gets the start in left field over a struggling Brett Gardner. With a lefty on the mound, the matchup makes sense, but Gardner has also started the season 0-for-11 with seven strikeouts.
Here's what manager Aaron Boone had to say about Andújar getting the nod Thursday night.
"I think that's that's one way of, you know, getting them in there from time to time, you know he'll get his starts here and there at third base but yeah I feel like, you know, this is a matchup to get him back in there and again trying to keep a few of these guys that haven't been playing every day, trying to as much as possible, get them somewhat regular at-bats."
