Game 19. Moves and lineup.

From Mark Feinsand ‏@FeinsandNYDN · Twitter Mark Teixeira activated; Preston Claiborne & Bryan Mitchell recalled; Ivan Nova on 15-day DL; Scott Sizemore to Triple-A; Matt Daley DFA.

Nova has a partially torn UCL in his pitching elbow. Expect him to be out quite a while.

I’d have kept Sizemore up and gotten rid of Roberts.

 

Todays lineup:

Jacoby Ellsbury CF (leads AL in G, BA, SB and CS)
Derek Jeter SS (3330 career h)
Carlos Beltran RF (362 career HR)
Alfonso Soriano DH (410 career HR)
Mark Teixeira 1B (341 career HR)
Yangervis Solarte 3B
Brett Gardner LF
Brian Roberts 2B
John Ryan Murphy C

LHP Vidal Nuno

Yanks 10-8, tied for 1st in A.L. East. They are 2 games better than their Pythagorean record of 8-10 (based on runs scored vs. runs allowed).

Still too early for stats.

 

Game 18. Yanks hammered, 16-1.

Over the course of 162 games, you will win a game like this, and lose one. The Yanks were hammered 16-1 tonight. It was so bad that Dean Anna pitched (which I agree with. Once you are down that badly, why waste your bullpen? At that point it doesn’t matter if you lose 10-1 or 16-1).

The bigger concern here is Ivan Nova. He had a good spring training, but since the season started has not been good. 2-2, 8.27. Yuk. He’s lucky he is 2-2. He has so much more talent than to be that right now. But if he loses his starting position, who takes over? Phelps? Warren? Nuno (starting Sunday)? Gordon, Aceves? Billings? Who?

Nova went 4+, gave up 8 r and 4 HR. His inconsistency is baffling. Here is a guy who in 2011 went 16-4, 3.70, then he follows it up with 12-8, 5.02.

Last year he had a rough beginning, great end. 9-6, 3.10. Now? 2-2, 8.27.

Just like A.J. Burnett. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and you don’t know which one will show.

Is he the guy who went 25-10, with an ERA in the mid-3’s, or the 14-10 pitcher with an ERA of over 6 who is lucky to be 14-10 during that span? And if he needs to be replaced, who replaces him?

The frustrating thing is the inconsistency. We’ve seen when he is good. But when can he be good most of the time?

Meanwhile, Tony Pena noted an elbow issue with Nova. MRI being done. Bryan Mitchell called up. Looks like Nova will be DL”d.

After Nova, Matt Daley, just called up from SWB came in and gave up a grand slam. He went 1 1/3, 6 R, 4 ER. Dellin Betances went 1 2/3 scoreless but Dean Anna (yes, the backup IF) gave up 2 R in 1 IP as Girardi wanted to save the bullpen.

Once again, the Trop (I hate that dump. Dome, AstroTurf and the roof rings in-play) is a House of Horrors for the yanks. 27 runs given up in the last two games. Bullpen exposed.

Nuno tomorrow. Hopefully he gives 5 solid innings. The bullpen needs it.

The offense had just three hits and one run tonight. So it’s not like they would have salvaged a good pitching effort anyway.

But concerns over Nova.

S.T. Game 16 … and one split squad loses…

In the away split squad game today, the Yanks lost to the Phils, 6-2.

Ivan Nova went five, and struggled. He only gave up 3 R, but on 9 hits. He did strike out six.

Shane Greene and Bryan Mitchell each pitched a scoreless inning but then Preston Claiborne was awful.

Claiborne gave up 3 R in 2/3 of an inning. Mark Montgomery got an out.

Roberto Hernandez (the former Fausto Carmona) went 15 up, 15 down on the Yanks for the first five innings before Scott Sizemore led off the sixth against him with a single, whereupon Hernandez was pulled.

The Yanks managed just four hits in this game. A HR by Jacoby Ellsbury and RBI single by Francisco Cervelli in the seventh did cut it to 3-2 Phils before Claiborne gave any chance of winning the game away.

The Yanks are now 8-6-2 this spring and will continue to split squads up as some of the team heads to Panama (and Mo) this weekend.
