Danny Valencia is the designated hitter against left-hander CC Sabathia. Chris Davis moves down to sixth in the order and Anthony Santander stays in right field.

Among active pitchers with at least 25 innings against the Yankees, Andrew Cashner’s 1.73 ERA ranks as the fourth-lowest behind Roberto Osuna (0.90), Dallas Keuchel (1.41) and Yu Darvish (1.64).

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Adam Jones’ 250 home runs rank 13th all-time among center fielders and fifth in the American League behind Mickey Mantle (432), Ken Griffey Jr. (382), Fred Lynn (266) and Bernie Williams (261). Willie Mays is the all-time leader with 640.

On this date in 1992, the first game was played at Camden Yards and the Orioles defeated the Indians 2-0 behind Rick Sutcliffe’s five-hit shutout.
