The ALDS round of the 2022 MLB Playoffs features a pair of exciting matchups, including a showdown between two division winners in the 3-seed Cleveland Guardians and 2-seed New York Yankees. Cleveland swept the Tampa Bay Rays in the Wild Card round thanks to a combination of stellar pitching and timely hitting.

Meanwhile, the Yankees enter after winning 99 games in the regular season for the third time in the last four full seasons. Manager Aaron Boone's squad captured its first divisional title since 2019, which is also the same year New York made its most recent appearance in the ALCS. The pressure is on to perform.

Guardians vs Yankees Prediction & Pick

These are two teams that got into the postseason in very different ways. The Yankees were picked by mnay as the AL East representatives way before the 2022 regular season began. However, the Guardians were not expected to capture the AL Central title. Keep in mind Cleveland possesses the youngest roster in all of baseball, but it is that youth and easygoing mindset that lines up a Game 1 upset perfectly.

Gerrit Cole has been up-and-down this season, especially as of late. The 32-year-old has allowed 4 earned runs in three of his last five starts and has given up at least one home run in each of his last eight starts. That is not going to get the job done in the postseason when everything is on the line. Look for All-Star slugger Jose Ramirez to be the difference-maker with a late-inning clutch hit here.

Final Score Prediction: Guardians: 4 | Yankees: 3

Guardians vs Yankees Probable Starting Pitchers

The Cleveland Guardians will look to Cal Quantrill (15-5, 3.38 ERA) in Game 1 and the New York Yankees hand the ball to Gerrit Cole (13-8, 3.50 ERA).
