On paper both teams have pretty good rotations obviously barring injuries. The Yankees rotation is full of question marks regarding the injuries of Masahiro Tanaka, CC Sabathia and Michael Pineda. Nathan Eovaldi will be an interesting pitcher in the Yankees rotation. The Mets hope Matt Harvey gets back to his form after Tommy John surgery. Rookie of the Year Jacob deGrom looks to continue his strong rookie campaign and Zach Wheeler gives the Mets a strong young core.
Edge: It’s close but with all the question marks in the Yankees rotation heading into this season gives the edge to the Mets. However, if the Yankees rotation can stay healthy, there is no reason to believe they won’t produce the same numbers as the Mets starters.
