Nestor Cortes starting Tuesday for Yankees in ALDS Game 5

New York Yankees left-handed pitcher Nestor Cortes will start on Tuesday in Game 5 of the ALDS against right-hander Aaron Civale and the Cleveland Guardians.

What It Means:

The Yankees were originally going to start Jameson Taillon in Game 5 on Monday, but now they will send Cortes to the mound on short rest for the postponed contest. The 27-year-old southpaw has only started a game on three days of rest one other time in his career. On September 10, 2019, he made a spot start on the road against the Detroit Tigers and allowed four runs (two earned) and six hits over 2 1/3 innings.

numberFire's models project Cortes for 31.5 FanDuel points over 5 2/3 innings in Game 5, and he has a $9,700 salary on Tuesday's Main slate.
