Welcome to Bullpen Day, part 1!

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Yankees Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

The Phillies, battling in a division race to claim the division lead, will take on the Yankees and use....their bullpen. Thanks to injuries and Covid issues, the team is scrambling for pitchers. Due to this lack of depth, the team has to cobble together a bullpen game tonight, starting with the recently recalled Spencer Howard. How the rest of the game goes will be determined, but it’s a fair guess that we’ll see a decent amount of Cristopher Sanchez.

For the Yankees:

The Yankees also have to go through a bullpen day, so this one could get interesting for both sides very quickly.
