The Yankees (5-3 in spring training) lost 5-3 to Detroit Friday night, but Gerrit Cole and Michael King were impressive in the loss.
For King, it was very encouraging to see. King was 6-3, 2.29 last season and really dominating when he fractured his pitching elbow. For him to come out and do great was wonderful to see.
Not a good outing however for Clarke Schmidt, who is battling Domingo German for the #5 starter slot that is up for grabs because of Frankie Montas’ shoulder injury.
Aaron Judge 2 for 3, both hits doubles
Gleyber Torres 0 for 2, both strikeouts. Had a tooth pulled the day before.
D.J. LeMahieu and Giancarlo Stanton both 0 for 3
Willie Calhoun 1 for 2. Trying to win LF job.
Harrison Bader 1 for 2, double.
Spencer Jones (#5 prospect) 2 for 2
Cole 3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 4 K.
King (H) 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 4 K.
Schmidt (BS, L) 1 2/3 IP, 4 R, 3 H, 1 W, 2 K. 1 HBP. Gave up 1 HR. He has an option left. Could be sent to AAA.
Fenter 1/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 0 K.
Deivi Garcia 2 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 1 W, 3 K. 1 HBP.
