During the postseason, Santana is 2-2 with 5.56 ERA in eight games (two starts).

Chris Gimenez also homered for Minnesota and Joe Mauer went 1 for 3 with an RBI-double to finish the regular season with a.305 batting average, the first time he has topped.300 since 2013.

The Twins will throw Ervin Santana, he went 16-8 with a 3.28 ERA this season.

The Yankees finished the season second in the AL East at 91-71, while the Twins finished second in the AL Central at 85-77. They are 9-21 in 30 regular-season games over nine seasons in this ballpark, including a three-game sweep by NY just last week.

The Yankees finished comfortably ahead of the Twins for home-field advantage. "It's a one-game playoff", manager Joe Girardi said. "I think we're encouraged that he's going to be available (Tuesday) in some capacity". "He's always getting in good counts".

As for the National League, the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks will face off in the National League Wild-Card game tomorrow night in Arizona. Severino will be opposed by fellow Dominican Ervin Santana. The Twins only 2 wins in their postseason history against the New York Yankees had given them a 1-0 series lead.

The deal will keep the 28-year-old point guard in Oklahoma City through to the 2022/23 season, after which he will be 34. If Westbrook and Anthony are committed to staying, coupled with a successful season, George's decision becomes tougher.

"I don't think that you go up there trying to hit all three of his pitches because that's usually not a good mix", Molitor said. "I'm just excited for this opportunity". However, that was nearly definitely a fluke because the young righty and dark horse Cy Young candidate posted a 2.10 ERA in September and followed that start with six innings of one-run ball against the Tampa Bay Rays. NY also topped the big leagues with 241 homers. While Santana has been able to limit his BB:K ratio (0.37:1), his home-run rate is slightly concerning, as he's given up 1.32 HR/9 during the regular season.

"I feel good going in". Led by fireballing closer Alrodis Chapman, who picked up 22 saves and Dellin Betances, striking out 100 batters for the fourth straight year, the Yankees also feature depth with set-up men David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle as well as the versatile Adam Warren. "As long as he's continuing to do his thing, I'm not going to pull him too early".

Despite the fact that Tuesday will be his first career playoff game, Severino (14-6, 2.98 ERA) is confident, having had a bounce-back year after struggling in 2016, a season in which he was 0-8 with an 8.50 ERA in 11 starts.

"He's a pitcher that does have a lot of experience", Girardi said.
