Twins vS. Yankees Live stream. Twins vs. Yankees AL Wild Card live stream info, TV channel, time, starting pitchers: How to Watch the 2017 MLB playoffs
By late Sunday morning, the Twins still hadn’t decided whether one of the most popular members of their squad would travel to New York for Tuesday’s American League wild card playoff game. Miguel Sanó? No, that seemed assured, even with Sanó running half-speed on a sore left shin. But Caballito, the cute brown-and-white stuffed horse infielder Eduardo Escobar keeps in his locker? That needed to be determined. It’s finally October, which means that competition for the Fall Classic is getting underway. Tuesday’s AL Wild Card match-up will feature the Minnesota Twins (85-77) and the New York Yankees (91-71). The Yankees are currently at -245 according to Oddsshark.
Teammates outfitted Caballito with a novelty Twins cap and casual footwear, and Escobar changes the shoes every day. Sunday’s choice: Golf shoes. If the clubhouse energy needs a boost, Dozier leaves it coffee or a Red Bull. In August, someone added a purple Minnesota State Fair ribbon. The Yankees are riding a wave of young talent, headlined by the likes of Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez. With Aroldis Chapman finally returning to form towards the end of the season, the Yankees seem to have all of the pieces in tow to make a run.
This start will be Severino’s first postseason start, but it’s nothing new for Santana. Santana has pitched in two Wild Card games so far in his career. Severino, however, has been scalding since the All-Star break. He is 9-2 since the break, and although he’ll have his work cut out for him against Minnesota’s veteran ace, the 23-year-old has shown throughout the year that his confidence can carry into late innings and — indeed — the late season.
You can watch the Yankees and Twins from 8 p.m. E.S.T. via ESPN and ESPN Deportes. Those streaming the game can use the Watch ESPN service.
