Yanks to start rookie Betances tonight
The Yankess will start rookie Dellin Betances against the Rays tonight. The Rays, seeking to win the wild-card outright, or at least force a one-game playoff, will start David Price.
Bentances, 23, a native New Yorker, made his major-league debut against the Rays last Thursday at Yankee Stadium, walking four and hitting a batter in two-thirds of an inning. He is 6-foot-8, 260 pounds, and spent most of 2011 at Double-A Trenton, going 4-6, 3.42. He was promoted to Triple-A and went 0-3, 5.14.
