After enjoying an off day for the first time in two weeks, the Yankees will look to come out re-energized and focused as they kick off a three-game set in Chicago against the White Sox. Chicago (69-58) is only 3.5 games behind the first place Minnesota Twins. The Yanks took two of three earlier this year in the Bronx. Expect the ball to be flying out of US Cellular Field with two of the AL’s best power hitting teams.
