The New York Yankees are coming off an impressive series sweep of the Houston Astros. Nobody expected New York to win all games considering how Houston has had their number for some time. Shockingly, they pulled it off.

The way they pulled it off made it feel like a playoff atmosphere all series long. The question now is if they can continue to bring that winning momentum into Arizona. The Diamondbacks will present another test to this Yankees team who hope to continue to show resilience as they last did in the previous series against the Astros.

Here are three things to watch for this upcoming series versus the Diamondbacks.

1. Juan Soto On His Way to a Dominant Season in Pinstripes

There's no doubt that we will see great things from Juan Soto all year long. As a matter of fact, he has already shown signs that he can handle the pressure when it comes to playing for a big market team like the Yankees.

In the previous series, we saw a lot of impressive things from him. One of them was the impressive defense that saved New York from losing a tightly contested game against the Astros. Then came the bat. Soto came through clutch twice with his bat that proved to be a difference maker for the Yankees in their latest series win. In the Game 3, he went deep for the first time as a Yankee which gave them the lead following their late rally. He also came through again in Game 4 with a clutch two-out RBI single giving the Yankees the late lead. Question is can he continue that dominance as the Yankees face another test ahead of themselves.
