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 27. Yanks lose 3-1. Should we worry about Jeter/Teix?

Michael Pineda was done in by a couple of errors, one of which was his own, and a WP, but overall pitched decently in the Yanks’ 3-1 loss today. Of more concern may be the continuing lack of hitting by Derek Jeter and Mark Teixeira.

Pineda went 6, 3 R, 2 ER, on 6 h, 0 walks (1 hbp) and 2 K. He got a lot of ground ball outs. Scott LeRoux went 1/3 scoreless.

Cesar Cabral faced three batters and got no one out, giving up a hit and two walks. Dellin Betances came into the bases-loaded, one-out jam and got a K and a fly out to get out of it. It looks like Betances has made the team.

Danny Burawa and Jim Miller each pitched a scoreless inning.

So the Yanks’ pitching once again looked good. But…

Derek Jeter is now hitting .114 for the spring, and Mark Teixeira is at .115. Both are coming off major injuries that cost each of them almost all of 2013. Teixeira always starts slow. Are their poor springs an aberration, or cause for concern?

Brett Gardner and Carlos Beltran each went two for three.

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 10. Kuroda, Pineda impressive in Yanks win.

Hiroki Kuroda and Michael Pineda were impressive, and Carlos Beltran hit a 2-run HR, but the Yanks winning run in tonight’s game vs. the Tigers scored on a balk. The Yanks won 3-2.

Kuroda pitched 2 2/3, giving up no runs and striking out five.  He gave up one hit and one walk. Shawn Kelley got the last out in the third, then David Robertson pitched a scoreless fourth, striking out one.

Pineda then came in and pitched two scoreless innings, giving up just one hit and striking out four.

The Yanks had a 2-0 lead at that point because of Beltran’s 2-run HR in the third.

Matt Thornton then gave up two runs in the seventh. Preston Claiborne pitched a scoreless eighth and Jim Miller a scoreless ninth. In the bottom of the ninth, Zellous Wheeler singled and Francisco Cervelli singled him to third. Tiger pitcher Luis Marte then balked away the game.

Derek Jeter was 2 for 2 with a walk.

Also today, the Yankees announced that Yogi Berra’s wife Carmen passed away at the age of 85.

S.T. Game 8. Rays edge Yanks 5-4.

Tampa Bay beat the Yanks today 5-4 to drop the Yanks S.T. record to 4-4.

To show you how much S.T. means, consider this. Chase Whitley is 0-2, 18.00 and Robert Coello 0-2, 48.60 for the Yanks. There are your losses. Both had a very slim shot to make the team. You can consider that shot gone now.

Adam Warren started and gave up 1 R in 2 1/3.  Dellin Betances, who does have a shot to make the team, followed with 1 2/3 scoreless innings.

Coello then came in and stunk, giving up 4 R in 1/3 of an inning and taking the loss. Matt Daley pitched 2/3 scoreless. He was followed by Yoshinori Tateyama, who pitched two scoreless innings and Jim Miller, who tossed a scoreless frame.

Brett Gardner drove in two runs, and Eduardo Nunez was 3 for 3. Russ Canzler and Kelly Johnson each had an RBI. Yangervis Solarte had another hit and is 8 for 12 for the spring.

Masahiro Tanaka is scheduled to start and go three innings for the Yanks vs. the Phils tomorrow (1 p.m., MLB). Alfonso Soriano and Mark Teixeira are scheduled to get into a game for the first time this spring. Soriano has been battling the flu, and Teix is coming off that wrist injury that cost him almost all of last season.

S.T. Game 6. Nova excels in Yanks 4-2 win.

Ivan Nova pitched three shutout innings, giving up no hits, in the Yanks 4-2 win over Washington today. It was the Yanks’ fourth straight spring training win.

Nova threw strikes on 31 of his 35 pitches, and struck out four.

David Robertson followed with his first action of the spring. He hit a batter, got a DP and got an out.

Shawn Kelley and Dan Burawa each gave up a run in one inning of work.

Robert Coello, Yoshinori Tateyama and Jim Miller each pitched a scoreless inning.

Kelly Johnson and Corban Joseph had RBIs. Derek Jeter is still without a hit this spring. He went 0 for 3 and made an error.

Francisco Cervelli and Zoilo Almonte had two hits each.

Joe Namath threw out the first ball and served as Yanks’ “co-manager” for the day.

The Orioles signed Johan Santana to a minor-league deal.

 

 

S.T. Game 2. Yanks lose 8-2.

Derek Jeter played and went 0 for 2 but showed no signs of that ankle injury being a problem.

David Phelps went 2 IP, striking out 4 and he gave up a solo HR.  2 ip,  1 R, 2 H, 0 walks and 4 K.

Jim Miller gave up a run in 1 2/3 IP.

Bob Coello  http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/c/coellro01.shtml  had a terrible outing. 5 R in 1/3 IP.  He was 2-2, 3.71 for the Angels in 16 games last year.

John Ryan Murphy had an RBI and Kelly Johnson had an RBI double.
