MLB.com

Two of the top young hurlers in the American League face off when the Yankees' Luis Severino and the Tigers' Michael Fulmer toe the rubber Monday night in the Bronx as part of an abbreviated slate of games streaming live on MLB.TV.

Severino pitched masterfully in his last four starts, going 2-0 with a 1.29 ERA and 31 strikeouts across 28 innings. The 23-year-old All-Star completed seven innings in each of those starts and allowed just one homer in that span.

Severino pitched masterfully in his last four starts, going 2-0 with a 1.29 ERA and 31 strikeouts across 28 innings. The 23-year-old All-Star completed seven innings in each of those starts and allowed just one homer in that span.

Fulmer, also selected to the AL All-Star team in 2017 for the first time, is coming off a tough-luck loss to the Royals in which he gave up three runs in eight innings. The 24-year-old has lasted at least eight frames in four of his last six starts.

First pitch for the opening contest of a four-game set is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. Eastern Time.

All-Star pitching duel: SEA@TEX, 8:05 p.m.

A pair of former Midsummer Classic regulars go head-to-head as the Mariners' Felix Hernandez and the Rangers' Cole Hamels do battle at Globe Life Park in Arlington.

Hernandez, a six-time All-Star, started the season slowly, but has returned to form over his past four starts. King Felix carried a 5.04 ERA into his July 9 outing, but has gone 2-1 with a 2.28 ERA in his quartet of outings since.

Hamels is a four-time All-Star and represented Texas on the AL squad as recently as last season. After beginning July red hot, the left-hander has cooled off, surrendering 11 earned runs over his last two starts. He'll look to rebound versus Seattle.

Postseason aspirations: TB@HOU, 8:10 p.m.

The Rays are looking to make a run at the playoffs, and Tampa Bay right-hander Alex Cobb is pitching like a guy who wants to help his club achieve that lofty goal. The 29-year-old is 3-0 with a 1.48 ERA in his previous four outings and has pitched into the eighth inning in each of those starts.

Cobb gets the ball opposite Astros righty Charlie Morton in a true test against the best team in the AL. Morton will make things tough on the Rays as he's been solid throughout July, going 3-1 with a 3.28 ERA and 27 strikeouts in 24 2/3 innings.

ALDS rematch: CLE@BOS, 7:10 p.m., ESPN

The Indians and Red Sox meet at Fenway Park in a rematch of the 2016 American League Division Series when Cleveland swept Boston to advance.

Righty Mike Clevinger takes the mound for the Indians trying to rebound from his last start, a no-decision versus the Angels in which he allowed six runs (five earned) in 4 1/3 innings.
