Tampa Bay Rays

Up next for the Rays: Blake Snell to open four-game series at Yankee Stadium

Thursday: at Yankees
7:05, Yankee Stadium
TV/radio: Fox Sports 1; 620-AM, 680-AM (Spanish)

Probable pitchers
Rays: LH Blake Snell (8-3, 2.30)
Yankees: RH Domingo German (0-4, 5.32)

On Snell: By 2018 standards, Snell was shaky in Saturday's win against Seattle (6 IP, 7 H, 1 ER, 1 K, 2 BB), but still is 3-0 with a 0.38 ERA over his last four starts. He has yielded two or fewer runs in 12 starts, tied with Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander for most in the majors.

On German: Once an afterthought in the Yankees' farm system, German, who also has logged time in the bullpen, seeks his first big-league victory in his seventh career start. In his first start, in early May against Cleveland, he threw six no-hit innings before being pulled as he approached his pitch limit.
