The interleague 'Subway Series' resumes as baseball returns on Friday, with the New York Yankees hosting their crosstown rival New York Mets.

Major League Baseball returns on Friday after the game’s annual four-day All-Star break. The highlight of the second half’s opening weekend features the annual interleague “Subway Series” pitting the New York Mets against the Yankees. The Yankees come in with the second-best record in the Majors per MLB.com. The New York Mets are struggling to get out of last place in the National League East. The game will live stream from the Bronx on Friday.

While the Mets send fireballing righty Noah “Thor” Syndegaard to the mound on Friday, the Yankees may have the most interest in checking out the Mets’ Sunday starter, according to Pinstripe Alley. That would be the Mets’ 30-year-old ace, Jacob deGrom, who has been rumored as a trade target for the Yankees for at least the last month. But whether the Mets, whose season appears lost as they sit 16 games under the.500 mark and 13-and-a-half games out of first place, are willing to part with the Major League ERA leader is another question.

Jacob deGrom, despite a 5-4 record, has been the most dominant pitcher in baseball in terms of allowing the other team to score, with a 1.68 ERA, per Baseball Reference.

First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time or 4:05 p.m. Pacific Time on Friday, July 20.

The Yankees will get their second-half campaign underway with 25-year-old Dominican righty Domingo German, who turned in a solid performance against the Mets on June 9. German turned in six innings with three runs on five hits, fanning nine and walking no one, as Baseball Reference records. The Yankees won that game, 4-3.

While it may be too little, too late for the struggling Mets, Friday’s game will mark the return of Cuban slugger Yoenis Cespedes, who missed the last two months as he struggled to rehab hip and leg injuries, according to Amazin’ Avenue. Though Cespedes, who slammed eight home runs in his 137 at-bats before going on the disabled list, is expected to be slotted in at designated hitter on Friday, he may move to first base once the Mets start playing in National League parks again, after the Subway Series.
