The Yankees finished out their 2020 regular season with a three-game home series against the Miami Marlins this past weekend, and even though they qualified for the postseason, they won’t be playing another game at Yankee Stadium until 2021.
Hours ahead of their 2020 MLB Playoffs opener, the Cleveland Indians announced their 28-man roster for their best-of-three Wild Card Division Series against the New York Yankees. The Indians' postseason roster should look familiar to many, with the team largely carrying the same set of players it last did in the regular season with the exception of one change; outfielder Bradley Zimmer has been added to Cleveland's 28-man roster, while pitcher Adam Plutko sent to the 12-player Taxi Squad.
CLEVELAND – The Lake Erie midges moved into Cleveland sports lore in 2007, when a swarm of them clustered around Yankees reliever Joba Chamberlain on the mound and impacted Game 2 of the AL Division Series. Bug spray might have been the worst thing to use: with a slippery grip, Chamberlain uncorked a wild pitch that allowed the Indians to tie the game 1-1 in the eighth. Cleveland went on to win the game in the 11th.
