S.T. game 29. Yanks lose to Toronto, 10-6.

 

For most of 2013, Preston Claiborne was a revelation. From his MLB debut on May 5th, right through Sept. 3, his ERA was 2.74. 38 games, 0-1, 2.74. Solid.

But in his last six appearances, from Sept. 3rd on, he was 0-1, 18.69. That is as ugly as ugly can be.

Today he got no one out and gave up six runs as the Yanks lost to Toronto 10-6. His S.T. ERA is 14.29. It’s safe to say he won’t be making the team.

You wonder if he is healthy. What a dropoff.

For the second day in a row, Joe Girardi pitched a bunch of scrubs as he lines up his rotation to start the season. Scott LeRoux started and gave up 2 R in 3 IP.

Matt Daley got an out, and Fred Lewis, who had an outside shot at the 2nd lefty in the bullpen role, probably blew it by giving up 2 in 2/3 of an inning.

Then Claiborne could not get any one out and gave up six runs.

Jim Miller, Dellin Betances,  Danny Burawa and Yoshinori Tateyama each pitched a scoreless inning. It would be shocking if Betances, who has had a great spring, does not make it.

Carlos Beltran had two hits and 2 rbi.  Kelly Johnson drove in 2 runs.

With Brendan Ryan hurt, Dean Anna and Yangervis Solarte each have a shot at making the team. Solarte was 1 for 1 today, raising his spring average to .459— but he is NOT on the 40 man roster. Anna was 1 for 2 with an RBI and has hit .297 this spring. He IS on the 40-man. Zelous Wheeler doesn’t play SS like the other two can. He has hit .324 this spring.

One scout states that the 40-year-old Ichiro has looked terrible this spring. The Yanks would like to dump him and would pick up part of his salary. If they do dump Ichiro,  Adonis Garcia has hit .419 this spring, and Zoilo Almonte .361.

 

S.T. Game 28. Yanks offense disappoints in 6-0 loss.

The Yanks lost tonight, 6-0 to the Phils.

Earlier today, it was announced that Michael Pineda won the #5 starter job.

As for the game, it isn’t the 6 that bothers me as much as the zero.

Adam Warren, who will most likely split long relief duties with David Phelps, started, pitched one inning, and gave up no runs. He did walk two.

Phelps pitched an inning and gave up an unearned run, via TWO errors by Kelly Johnson at 3B. This will be a concern. One scout rated the Yanks’ infield defense & their range as the WORST in the majors this year.

Vidal Nuno, who otherwise had a very good spring training, gave up b2b hrs to Howard and Byrd in the third. This, combined with the HR to Bautista he gave up earlier this spring, hurts him. Granted his spring ERA is 3.86, not bad, but the runs are are solo HR (Bautista, Howard and Byrd).

David Robertson and Matt Thornton each pitched a scoreless inning. Shane Greene gave up 2 R in 1 IP. After Shawn Kelley and David Herndon each pitched a scoreless inning. Matt Daley gave up a run in the 9th.

The biggest disappointment tonight was with the Yankees’ bats. Outside of Ellsbury, this was the Yanks’ A-team lineup out there tonight and they did nothing—-and hey, the sub for Ellsbury was Ichiro. No excuses. They scored NADA and against pitchers not exactly A caliber level.

Brett Gardner was 3 f0r 3. After that, nothing. Jeter was  1 for 3 on a blooper but is still at just .128 this spring. Teix (who my buddy, Josh the Yankee Truth is down upon) went 0 for 4, three strikeouts, and is at .100 this spring. Teix was in the cleanup spot tonight. I hope Girardi does not keep him there. He looked awful. Now Teix never has been a good spring player, but he has looked awful.

Cleanup, really ???

 

 

S.T. Game 24. Yanks edge Boston, 3-2.

There has been rumors that teams looking for pitching and catching are looking at David Phelps and Francisco Cervelli, with the Yanks possibly dealing one or both for infield or bullpen help.

Phelps and Cervelli have done nothing to hurt their trade value this spring, and that continued tonight in the Yanks’ 3-2 win over Boston.

Phelps went 6, giving up 2 R, 4 H, 2 walks and 3 K. Scott LeRoux (1 1/3), Fred Lewis (2/3) and Matt Daley (1) pitched shutout ball over the last three innings.

Cervelli belted a HR, his fourth of the spring, and is hitting .484. Ichiro added a 2-run single.

The win makes the Yanks 13-9-2 this spring.

Best wishes for the Reds’ closer Aroldis Chapman, who was struck in the face by a line drive (off his 99 MPH fastball) last night. He suffered fractures above his eye and in his nasal cavity, and will need surgery to put a plate in. A scary moment.

S.T. Game 22. Yanks “buzz” Boston, 8-1.

Michael Pineda was impressive again today as the Yanks beat Boston 8-1 in a game that was held up for a few minutes because of a swarm of bees.

While the groundskeepers were spraying the bees, Mark Teixeira came out of the Yanks’ dugout holding up a couple of bottles of honey—sweet.

Pineda went 4 1/3, giving up 0 r, 4 H and striking out five. Fifth starter? Heck, he’s been pitching like an ace or #2 this spring.

Alfonso Soriano drove in four runs, three with a HR.

Ichiro had an RBI single, and so did Jeter on an infield hit. Teixeira drove in two with a single.

Brett Gardner went 3 for 4. Francisco Cervelli was 2 for 3, as was Brian Roberts.

David Robertson pitched 2/3 of an inning, giving up a hit but both his outs were strikeouts.

Shawn Kelley pitched a scoreless sixth. David Herndon gave up a run in the seventh, Fred Lewis and Matt Daley finished up with scoreless innings.

The Yanks are now 11-9-2 for the spring.

 

 

S.T. Game 19. Yanks no-hit down in Panama, lose 5-0

The Yanks have a split squad in Panama to play two games and to honor Mo.

Tonight, that team got no hits in losing 5-0.

Adam Warren started and pitched well in his bid for the #5 starter spot. 4 1/3 IP, 1R, 2 H, 0 walks and 6 K. Great job.

Chase Whitley gave up a run in an inning of work.

Matt Daley, 1 2/3, no runs. Brian Coello, who has stunk this spring (sorry, being honest), 3 R, 2 ER in 1/3 of an inning. Coello’s ERA this spring? 33.00

Yoshinori Tateyama,  no runs in 2/3 and Jim Miller no runs in 1 IP.

The Yanks record this spring is now 8-9-2.

The lineup did have Gardner, Jeter, Beltran, Soriano, Sanchez, Cervelli  & Almonte in it.

 

S.T . Game 13. Nats edge Yanks, 3-2

Neither team hit much, just 9 hits in the game, but Washington edged the Yanks 3-2 in spring training action today.

CC was shaky. 3 IP, 3 R, 4 H, 2 walks and 3 K. After that, the Yanks’ bullpen was superb, giving up 0 runs on 1 hit.

Matt Daley, Jim Miller, Dave Herndon and Cesar Cabral each pitched a scoreless and hitless inning. Brian Gordon gave up a hit in his scoreless inning.

The Yanks managed just four hits. Brett Gardner drove in a run with a SF, and Dean Anna drove in another after an Eduardo Nunez triple.

Yangervis Solarte had another hit and is now hitting .611 for the spring.

 

S.T. Game 12. Yanks, Rays end in 10-inning, 3-3 tie.

The Yanks’ starting pitching continued to be surprisingly good today as the Yanks and Rays battled to a 10-inning, 3-3 tie.

David Phelps started and gave up no runs on just three hits in five innings. Dellin Betances pitched a scoreless sixth. Bruce Billings gave up two runs, one earned, in the seventh.

Brian Roberts got one run back in the bottom of the seventh with a SF.

Dan Burawa gave up an unearned run (error Dean Anna) in the eighth to put the Rays up 3-1. Matt Daley pitched a scoreless ninth and Mark Montgomery a scoreless tenth.

The Yanks cut the Rays lead to 3-2 with the help of an error in the eighth, and tied it up in the ninth on a WP.

Alfonso Soriano and Jose Pirela had two hits each.
