Twins slugger Miguel Sano not on roster for wild-card game

Luis Severino yankees

Tonight is do-or-die for the Yankees, as they fight for a spot in the ALDS. Here are five keys to securing a win and keeping their season alive.

"To me, I feel good about going in", he said.

Molitor believes Sano will at least be available off the bench.

This year the Twins are now, as of writing this on September 29, 83-76 with three games left against the Detroit Tigers.

Twins slugger Miguel Sano went 0 for 3 as he works to get his timing back for the postseason. "It gives me more confidence to go out for my team". But in this case, those eight at-bats are all the Twins really have to form an opinion on where he's at after missing six weeks, and the results weren't overly-encouraging.

For the Twins, Paul Molitor is in his third year and has lead Minnesota back to the playoffs for the first time in seven years. Southpaw reliever Chasen Shreve is one possibility. In all realistic terms, NY should win this game. That notion is heightened even further in a one-game scenario.

The playoff berth is the first time the Twins made the postseason since the 2010 season.

Yankees: One year into a youth movement, the Baby Bombers blossomed fast under 10th-year manager Joe Girardi and returned NY to the postseason perhaps ahead of schedule.

"I think we've played some of our best baseball in the month of September", said manager Joe Girardi.

New York Yankees starting pitcher Luis Severino during a baseball news conference Monday, Oct. 2, 2017, in New York. The veteran beat NY as a rookie to knock them out of the playoffs in 2005.

Perhaps most importantly in an elimination game, the Yankees have the better bullpen. Buxton shows that he can be one of the best outfielders in the game one day. In a loss at the Stadium Sept. 18, Santana allowed two runs and seven hits in 5 2⁄3 innings. They weren't expected to do much better considering they didn't make dramatic changes in their roster. Nobody thought they were going to be here.

The New York Yankees are betting favorites over the Minnesota Twins in the 2017 AL Wild-Card Game.

Can the Twins upset the heavily favored Yankees? "Their crowd is definitely one of the advantages they have playing at home, but if you can take them out as soon as possible, that's great". Of course, they can only do that if they...

Minnesota was 52-56 on August 5 and closed the season on a 33-21 run. In right field, Max Kepler has just two errors in 299 total chances, and Eddie Rosario has just four errors in 274 chances.

"OK, well, tomorrow will be one", Santana said when asked about his prior appearances in the Bronx by ESPN's Buster Olney.

Luis Severino will be on the mound for the Yankees.

"We played some games this year that were, it seemed to me, like a playoff atmosphere", Gardner said. Over his 211.1 innings and 16-8 record this year, Santana has a 3.28 ERA with 167 Ks. "I think they're all just going to enjoy the moment and it will be fun".

Colon said he plans to pitch in the big leagues next season. The Twins have only 13 plate appearances against him, obviously a small sample size. Berrios has the ability to keep the Yankees' offense at bay, if he's able to throw his pitches for strikes.
