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 26. Yanks beat Twins, 5-4.

Masahiro Tanaka didn’t seem to have his great stuff today, but he still battled as the Yanks won 5-3 over the Twins today.

Tanaka came close to giving up a grand slam, and did give up 3 r in 5 2/3 ip. He gave up 5 h, walked one, hit one and struck out six.

He does seem like a guy who can win without his best stuff. I like what I’ve seen from him so far. You wondered if the hype (24-0, 1.27 in Japan last year) was overblown. This guy looks like he will help and help big. Fred Lewis got the last out in the sixth.

David Herndon pitched a scoreless seventh and Shane Greene a scoreless eighth. Greene struck out the side.

Yoshinori Tateyama gave up a HR in the 9th, but struck out the side..

Scott Sizemore drove in two runs for the Yanks, and Yangervis Solarte got another hit as he tries to make the team what with Brennan Ryan being out with an injury. He went 1 for 1 and is at .471 for the spring. His major competition, Dean Anna, went 1 for 3. Zoilo Almonte went 2 for 4, and Zelous Wheeler was 2 for 3 with an RBI.

The Yanks’ spring record is now 15-9-2.

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.
