Game 5, initially scheduled for Monday night, was delayed and then postponed until Tuesday afternoon. The matchup was originally set to feature Aaron Civale for the Guardians taking on Jameson Taillon for the Yankees. With the postponement, the Yankees announced that they would instead start left-handed All-Star Nestor Cortes, who threw five innings against the Guardians in Game 2, giving up two earned runs. The Guardians have struggled against left-handed pitching all season, but seem to be waiting out the Yankees lefties effectively in this series, getting to both Cortes and reliever Wandy Peralta.
The Guardians have not announced who will make the start Tuesday as of this writing. Civale was added to the ALDS roster after being left off the roster for the wild-card round, but with weather changing the schedule multiple times, it is at least conceivable that the Guardians will bring back ace Shane Bieber on short rest and make this an early bullpen game. Keep an eye out for updates early today regarding the pitching matchup.
