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 14. Yanks, Tigers tie at 7

Hiroki Kuroda wasn’t good today, and the Yanks staged a late comeback to tie the Tigers 7-7 in a 10-inning affair.

The Yanks’ S.T. record so far is 7-5-2.

Kuroda really struggled, going 3 2/3, giving up 6 R, 10 H, 0 walks and 1 K. Chase Whitley went 1/3, scoreless.

Shawn Kelley, Jose Campos, Fred Lewis, and Danny Burawa then each pitched a scoreless inning. Robert Coello gave up an unearned run in his inning of work. Yoshinori Tateyama pitched a scoreless inning.

There are rumors that Francisco Cervelli could be dealt because of the Yanks’ backup C surplus (Gary Sanchez was optioned to AA Trenton today, and the Yanks still have Austin Romine and John Ryan Murphy for backup or AAA). Cervelli hit 2 HR today. He is 8 for 16 for the spring with 3 HR. After being suspended 50 games last year for the Biogenesis thing, I can hear the snickers about his S.T. numbers.

Zoilo Almonte was 2 for 2, including a 2-run HR that tied the game in the bottom of the 9th.

Yangervis Solarte is having an INCREDIBLE spring training. Another hit and his batting average is .632 this spring.

Zelous Wheeler had 2 RBI.

Ervin Santana finally found a home. 1 yr. deal w/Atlanta for $14.1 MM.


S.T. Game 11. Nova, Banuelos shaky in Yanks’ 9-6 win.

Ivan Nova pitched four innings, giving up 3 R on 8 H while striking out five in the Yankees’ 9-6 spring training win today.

Manny Banuelos pitched for the first time in a long time since his Tommy John surgery late in 2012. He had a rough outing, giving up a double, walk and 3-run HR before getting 2 outs. 2/3 IP, 3 R, 2 H, 1 walk and 1 K.

Chase Whitley faced one batter and got the K. Cesar Cabral, Dave Herndon, Fred Lewis and Chris LeRoux each pitched a scoreless inning.

Kelly Johnson hit a 2-run HR for the Yanks. Yangervis Solarte stayed hot, going 1 for 2. Austin Romine and Dean Anna each went 2 for 2. Mason Williams drove in 2 runs.

The Yanks’ spring record goes to 7-4.




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 7. O’s edge Yanks, 3-2.

The Orioles snapped the Yanks’ 4-game spring training winning streak, winning 3-2 tonight.

David Phelps started for the Yanks and went 2 2/3. He gave up 5 hits but just 1 run. He walked 1 and K’d 2. He was in trouble but was getting out of it.  Matt Thornton got the last out in the third.

Brian Gordon pitched one scoreless inning and Chris LeRoux two.

Chase Whitley (0-2, 18.00) gave up two runs in his inning of work and took the loss.

Cesar Cabral and Preston Claiborne each pitched a scoreless inning.

Derek Jeter was 0 for 2 and is still looking for his first S.T. hit. Francisco Cervelli had a solo HR.

Yangervis Solarte went 1 for 2 with an RBI. He is now 7 for 9 this spring.

S.T. Game 3. 4 HR carry Yanks, 7-4

The Yanks got their first s.t. win (I don’t count the one over FSU) with a 7-4 win over the Tigers. Four Yanks went deep—McCann, Jose Pirela,  top catching prospect Gary Sanchez, and Yangervis Solarte. For Solarte, it was is second HR this spring.

Adam Warren started and gave up no runs in 2 IP even though he walked two and gave up two hits. The Yanks got one scoreless inning out of Shawn Kelley, Mark Montgomery,  Danny Burawa, Fred Lewis, Chase Whitley and Preston Claiborne.

Brian Gordon gave up all four runs in his one inning of work.

CC, Kuroda and Tanaka will all pitch tomorrow (Saturday).


S.T. Game 1. Yanks lose 6-5.

For the record, I don’t count exhibition games against college teams, so today is S.T. game #1, even though the Yanks beat FSU 8-3 yesterday.

The Yanks lost 6-5 to the Pirates today.

Jacoby Ellsbury walked twice and got a single. He scored two runs.  Mason Williams got a double and an RBI. Brian McCann drove in a run. Yangervis Solarte had 2 hits, drove in two runs, and hit a HR.

Ivan Nova got only 4 outs, and gave up 2 runs. Dellin Betances, competing for a bullpen spot, pitched two scoreless innings.

Chase Whitley,  3-2, 3.06 at AAA last year, took the loss, giving up 4 runs in 1 inning of work.

Cesar Cabral and Preston Claiborne each threw a scoreless inning.
