Game 55. D-Rob fails in 9th, Yanks lose 7-2.

It looked like Chase Whitley would get his first MLB win. The Yanks had a 2-1 lead entering the ninth, but one day after throwing 27 pitches in getting a save, David Robertson had nothing and the Yanks lost to the Twins, 7-2. Two recent ex-Yanks, Phil Hughes and Eduardo Nunez, helped beat them, Hughes getting the win and Nunez picking up a big two-run double.

Whitley in four starts this year hasn’t given length, 14 IP in four starts, but his ERA is 2.37. He still has no decisions.

The Yanks got two runs on three hits in the fourth, as Gardner tripled, Jeter singled him home (3367), Ellsbury singled, McCann walked and Jeter later scored on an Ichiro SF.

But those three hits were the only hits the Yanks got all game. With no Beltran for a while (and a while longer), no Teixeira, Soriano slumping (and he was benched for Ichiro today), there isn’t any power in the lineup other than McCann.

Once again, can you say Kendrys Morales? The 5th can’t come soon enough. (If the Yanks sign Morales before the 5th, they lose a draft pick. After the 5th, he is fair game). In the NY Post today, Kevin Kernan wrote what I’ve been writing about. The Yanks need to sign Morales, especially with the uncertainty regarding Beltran and Teixeira.

Betances was awesome. 2 IP, six up, six down and 5 K. 1.38. 56K in 32 2/3 IP now.

Warren 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 walks and 1 K. 1.71.

…and here is why I hate roles on a team. Robertson comes in… why? Because he is the “closer,” that is why. But Warren pitched a scoreless 8th, and Robertson threw 27 pitches yesterday. Granted Warren threw 20 pitches in the 8th, but why not leave Warren in and save Robertson, who threw a lot of pitches yesterday? Maybe Warren shortens the bridge by getting an out or two, or closes it completely with a two-inning save. I remember the days when Lyle and Gossage would get saves of over one inning.  They may have gone 2 2/3. You don’t see that anymore. Managers complicate matters for themselves by creating roles and making closers one-inning guys. Keep it simple. If the guy is hot, ride him. No need to bring in a closer just because he is the “closer.” I believe that if you start mixing and matching and bringing in too many pitchers, eventually you’ll find the guy who has nothing, just like in the saying “too many cooks spoil the soup.” D-Rob had nothing. First batter, a game-tying HR, and it got worse, because the Twins scored six in the top of the 9th to win it.

Robertson (L, 0-2) 2/3 IP, 5 R, 2 H, 3 walks, 2 K. ERA balloons to 4.50. (One friend of mine suggested making Betances the closer. Nice sentiment, and I could see it. But that won’t happen. Not yet, anyway.)

Daley one batter, and he gave up a hit. That batter later scored. 0 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 0 walks, 0 H. 3.86.

Thornton got the last out, but gave up a big hit first. 1/3 IP, 0 R, 1 h, 0 walks, 0 K. 4.50.

Use the KISS method, Joe. Keep It Simple, Stupid. Guy’s hot? Leave him in.

That’s my theory, anyway.

The Yanks fall to 29-26, 3 1/2 back of Toronto now.

Start getting that contract for Morales ready, Hal and Cash….

With Robertson DL’d,

Joel Sherman@Joelsherman147m

Talked to Cashman who said will call up either LH Cesar Cabral or RH Shane Greene who opened eyes in camp, to fill DRob roster spot

Yanks trade Eduardo Nunez to Twins for a LHP (minor leaguer).

Joel Sherman@Joelsherman138m

acquired LHP Miguel Sulbaran from the Minnesota in exchange for INF Eduardo Nunez.

Sulbaran is 20, LHP and went 9-4, 2.96 in A ball last year (27 games, 20 starts).

The Minors today.

AAA: SWB had a DH. Two seven-inning games.

Game 1 : SWB lost 3-0, getting just three hits, two by 3B Scott Sizemore. Chase Whitley gave up 2 R in 1 2/3 IP. David Herndon 1 1/3 scoreless and Graham Stoneburner 3 IP, 1 unearned run.

Game 2: SWB won 5-0. Brian Gordon 5 IP, 1 h. Cesar Cabral, Yoshinori Tateyama and Fred Lewis 1/3 each and Jim Miller 1 IP. SS Carmen Angelini 2 doubles and 3 rbi. 3B Zelous Wheeler 2 doubles.

AA: Trenton won 11-5 with an 11-run fourth inning. 3B Rob Segedin a 2-run HR and DH Gary Sanchez a grand slam. Joel De La Cruz 5r, 4 er in 6 1/3.

High A:  Tampa lost 8-5. 3B Eric Jagielo a HR.  Dan Camarena 6 R, 1 ER in 4 1/3.  1B Rey Nunez 2 h, 2 rbi. RF Pete O’Brien 2 h, rbi.

Low A:  Charleston won 4-1.  3 h, 3 rbi for 3B Miguel Andujar. Brady Lail 6 IP, 1 R, Cesar Vargas 2 scoreless IP.

Game 5. Yanks offense still missing in 4-0 loss.

Michael Pineda pitched well, David Phelps didn’t and the Yanks’ offense was non-existent again in a 4-0 loss to Toronto today.

Pineda went 6, 1 R, 5 H, 0 walks and 5 k. Except for CC’s first two innings in the opener, the starters have done well the first time through.

Vidal Nuno faced one batter and walked him. Phelps came in and got through the seventh, but gave up two HR (3 for the season already) and let the game get away. Phelps 2 IP, 3 R, 3 H, 0 walks and 3 K.

Ellsbury had 3 hits, Cervelli 2 and Solarte 2, but the Yanks were 1 for 11 with RISP.

The Yanks are still looking for their first HR of the season. Soriano is now 0 for 16.

Heard some Nunez (who has been DFA’d) for Ike Davis (who the Mets want to trade) talk. I’m still surprised that Stephen Drew is out there. Shouldn’t the Mets go for him over Nunez? …. and as for the Yanks, if Teix is out long-term, wouldn’t Kendrys Morales (free agent and still out there) be a better option than Ike Davis?
