Game #60. Judge’s heroics upstage Bauers’ 2 HR night in Yanks’ 6-3 win.

Jake Bauers hit two two-run homers, but it was Aaron Judge who stole the show in the Yankees’ (35-25) 6-3 win over the Dodgers last night.

The Yanks made a few moves before the game. Minor league C Jose Godoy was traded to Baltimore. P Ryan Weber and OF Greg Allen were placed on the IL, and Nick Ramirez and Oswaldo Cabrera flew cross-country to join the Yanks in LA. Cabrera would later HR in the game.

Both Weber and Allen will have MRIs. Weber’s injury is the most concerning. It’s his pitching forearm and you hope it doesn’t mean TJ surgery.

The Yanks got on the board in the top of the second when D.J. Lemahieu hit what appeared to be a single, but the Dodger CF misplayed it into a triple. Bauers followed with the first of his two HR on the evening to put the Yanks up 2-0.

The Dodgers came right back with a run in the bottom of the second when with two out, Yankees’ starter Gerrit Cole hit a batter then the next batter hit one down the LF line that found grass near the foul line despite three Yankees surrounding it.

Bauers hit his second two-run HR (5) of the game in the top of the fourth to put the Yanks up 4-1.

In the top of the sixth, Judge homered (19) to put the Yanks up 5-1.

After six innings, Cole was removed from the game. At first, I was wondering what was going on, since Cole was only at 80 pitches, and was texting friends and asking what manager Aaron Boone was doing. I didn’t see Cole hurt or anything. Here I found out later that Cole was suffering from leg cramps, thus the removal. But it sure seemed scary and confusing at the time because normally you wouldn’t pull an ace who was cruising (1 run, 4 hits) after just 80 pitches over six innings.

It looked worse when Cole’s replacement, Wandy Peralta, had nothing. A single to start the inning, then a ball misplayed in the corner by Cabrera, who had just replaced Bauers in LF for defense. Instead of a double, a run-scoring triple. 5-2. After a walk, Michael King came in for Peralta. King gave up a single that made it 5-3, and the Dodgers had men on first and second, no one out and you were wondering why the pitching change away from Cole (as I mentioned, didn’t know why until later). But King got two lineouts and a strikeout to get out of the inning.

In the bottom of the eighth, King got a strikeout to start the inning, but the batter reached on a passed ball by Jose Trevino. Judge then made a play that may have saved the game. J.D. Martinez lined one to RF and Judge made the catch while crashing into the fence, saving a double and possibly a run. The bullpen gate broke open upon Judge colliding with it, and the runner was given second because of Judge leaving the field of play (although it wasn’t his fault). Anyway, a tremendous play that probably saved a run and possibly the ballgame. Hopefully Judge is OK for tonight’s game. He said he felt discomfort in a toe (the base of the fence had a couple inches of concrete) and it sure made your heart flutter when he crashed into that fence. The Yanks are just getting back Stanton and Donaldson, have lost Allen and Bader for a while, and don’t need to lose their best player.

In the top of the ninth, Cabrera homered (4) to give the Yanks a 6-3 lead, which was the final score.

The Yanks only had six hits in the game, but four were HR.

Judge solo HR (19) and incredible catch.
Bauers two two-run HR (5), 4 RBI.
Cabrera solo HR (4)

Cole (W, 7-0) 6 IP, 1 R, 4 H, 2 W, 5 K. 1 HBP 2.82
Peralta 0 IP, 2 R, 2 H, 1 W, 0 K. 3.00
King (H, 2) 2 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 3 K. 1.65
Holmes (S, 6) 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 0 K. 2.96

Game #57. Volpe, IKF lead Yanks to 10-2 win. Judge HRs again (18).

While Aaron Judge homered again, it was the bats of Anthony Volpe and Isiah Kiner-Falefa that were the big stars in the Yankees’ (34-23) 10-2 win over Seattle Tuesday night.

Volpe hit a 3-run HR and IKF went 4 for 5 with 4 RBI.

Before the game, Jose Trevino was activated off of the IL, and Ben Rortvedt was sent down. Also, Harrison Bader was put on the 10-day IL, and Franchy Cordero called up from SWB.

Anthony Rizzo was still out with a stiff neck, and as a result, IKF was in the unfamiliar position of #5 in the lineup.

The Yanks struck right away with three runs in the top of the first inning. With one out and the bases loaded, IKF hit a 2-run single. Jake Bauers followed with a SF.

In the top of the third, Volpe hit a 3-run HR (8) to make it 6-0.

Greg Allen homered (1) for the Yanks in the top of the fourth to make it 7-0.

Nestor Cortes, for whatever reason, has had the fifth-inning blues this season. He’s fine for the first four innings, then hits a wall when the fifth inning or third time around the order happens. It happened again last night as he gave up two runs in the bottom of the fifth. By that time, he’d thrown 101 pitches and was done.

Judge homered (18) in the top of the seventh to make it 8-2.

In the top of the ninth, IKF singled in two runs to make it 10-2, which wound up being the final score.

Torres 2 hits.
Judge solo HR (AL leading 18; leads MLB in SA, OPS, OPS+)
Calhoun 2 hits.
Kiner-Falefa 4 hits, 4 RBI
Volpe 3-run HR (8).
Allen solo HR (1).

Cortes (W, 5-2) 5 IP, 2 R, 5 H, 3 W, 6 K. 5.16
King 2 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 1 W, 3 K. 1.76
Weber 2 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K. 2.92

I do wonder why, with a big lead, Matt Krook wasn’t used. He could have made his MLB debut and gotten his feet wet. Oh, well.

The Yanks are still in third place in the AL East, but have now closed the gap to 5 behind Tampa Bay and 2 behind Baltimore.

Game #48. Judge and Rizzo lead Yanks to 7-4, 10-inning win. Rortvedt debuts. Yanks DFA Hicks.

In my post regarding Game #47, I mentioned how the Yanks traded for Greg Allen. Allen was added to the major league team right away and in order to make room for him, the Yanks DFA’d Aaron Hicks, eating the rest of his contract.

It may have been a surprise move to some, that the Yanks would eat that much money remaining on the contract (I’d guess about $28MM and the rest of this year plus two more years?) but it was a long time coming. Hicks was hitting just .188-1-5 this year with an OPS+ of only 46 (100 is average). Since his best year of 2018 (.248-27-79, OPS+ 127 and 22nd in MVP voting), Hicks only hit .218 with an OPS+ of 92 whiles being frequently injured. His defense also has suffered, and the former CF was moved to LF what with Harrison Bader taking over the CF job. From 2017-2020, Hicks’ OPS+ was 120, but injuries hurt his 2017 and 2019 seasons, and Covid shortened the 2020 season to 60 games. The big drop-off in Hicks’ production started in 2021 when more injuries limited him to 32 games. He hasn’t been the same since.

Allen doesn’t have the power Hicks does, but does have more speed and unlike Hicks, who has been a starter, has been a bench player for his whole career, so he doesn’t have to adapt to the role like Hicks has had to this year. Like Hicks, Allen is a switch-hitter.

As for the game, the Yanks rode Aaron Judge and Anthony Rizzo to a 7-4, 10-inning win. Catcher Ben Rortvedt made his Yankees’ debut and got hits in his first two plate appearances.

Jhony Brito struggled and was sent down to AAA after the game to make room for today’s starter, Luis Severino, who will be coming off the IL and will be making his season debut today. It will be a strange starting time today (Sunday) of 11:35 AM.

The Reds struck first in yesterday’s game, getting a run in the bottom of the first. Brito hurt himself with a walk and a balk before giving up an RBI single.

The Yanks came right back in the top of the third to tie the game. Rortvedt doubled in his first ever Yankee at bat and was brought home on a single by Judge.

The Reds took a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the third. Once again, Brito hurt himself. After getting the first two hitters out, he walked the next three batters then gave up an infield single.

In the bottom of the fourth, Brito once again couldn’t close things out with two out. He got the first two hitters, then gave up a single and a 2-run HR and the Yanks were in a 4-1 hole.

They came right back to tie the game at four each with three runs in the top of the fifth. Isiah Kiner-Falefa hit a solo HR (2) with one out in the inning. Rortvedt and Gleyber Torres followed with singles. Judge doubled in a run to make it 4-3. Rizzo singled to tie the game, but Judge was thrown out at the plate on a bad send by third base coach Luis Rojas. It hurt at the time because D.J. LeMahieu singled right afterward. You think, hey, Judge would have then scored, but then you have the fallacy of the predetermined outcome. Oh, well.

The game stayed tied and went into the tenth inning. Allen, who arrived in the middle of the game, pinch-ran for Rortvedt as the ghost runner in the top of the tenth. He was moved to third on a flyout by Torres, and you thought that Cincinnati would then walk Judge to try to get out of the inning by making Rizzo GIDP. Instead, they pitched to Judge, and Judge broke the tie with an RBI single—his fourth hit of the day—to give the Yankees a 5-4 lead. But it didn’t matter if the Reds would have walked Judge, for (but once again, the fallacy of the predetermined outcome) Rizzo homered (11) to give the Yanks a cushion with a 7-4 lead, and that is the way the game ended.

The Yankees are 28-20 (3rd in AL East, 6 1/2 out), and even with some guys still out (most notably Stanton, Donaldson, Rodon, Montas, Loaisiga, Hamilton, and I won’t list guys who won’t even be back at all this year like Trivino and Effross) are 13-6 this month.

The AL East is one tough division. Toronto is 25-21, which isn’t a bad record, but they are in LAST place in the division.

Torres 2 hits.
Judge 4 for 4 with a walk, 3 RBI.
Rizzo 2 hits, 3 RBI. 2-run HR (11).
Kiner-Falefa solo HR (2).
Rortvedt 2 hits. (First two at bats as a Yankee, two hits. Yankee debut).

Brito 4 IP, 4 R, 4 H, 4 W, 6 K. Gave up 1 HR. 1 balk. 5.58 Sent to AAA after game.
Marinaccio 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 3 K. 4.09
King 2 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 3 K. 2.10
Holmes (W, 2-2) 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 1 K. 3.44
Weber (S, 1) 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K 3.68

The Yankee bullpen tossed six shutout innings, giving up just one hit.

Game #47. Judge, Rizzo HR, Higgy redeems self in Yanks’ 6-2 win.

Kyle Higashioka was 0 for 3 with three strikeouts in the game at that point in the top of the ninth inning. In the top of the seventh, with men on second and third and just one out, he had struck out instead of helping the Yanks add on to a 3-2 lead. He had pounded the bat into the bat rack in frustration at that point.

It was time to redeem himself, and he did, hitting a two-run double to ensure the Yankees’ win. The Yanks (3rd in AL East, 27-20, 6 1/2 out) beat Cincinnati 6-2 Friday night.

Aaron Judge, hot as all heck, gave the Yanks an early lead with a solo HR (13) in the first inning, and Anthony Rizzo upped that lead to 3-0 with a 2-run HR (10) in the top of the sixth.

In the middle of the game, the Yanks got a scare. Already playing one man short because of the suspension of Domingo German, Clarke Schmidt caused a controversy by being checked out by the umpires. It turned out he was ok with the amount of rosin on his hand, but that the fuzz from inside of his glove was sticking to and making a black mark on this non-pitching hand. He was told to wash it off, and he complied. All good. But Cincy manager David Bell thought that Schmidt deserved the German treatment (which REALLY would have screwed up the Yankees), argued too long about it, and got ejected.

Anyway, Schmidt then ran into trouble in the sixth, giving up a single and double. Jimmy Cordero came in for Schmidt and gave up a two-run double to make the score 3-2. He walked the next batter while there was an SB. So first and third, 3-2 game but Cordero escaped without any more runs scoring.

Then came the ninth and Higgy’s redemption. Gleyber Torres walked, and two outs later, Oswaldo Cabrera walked. Higgy then doubled both runners home to give the Yanks a 5-2 cushion. After a walk to D.J. LeMahieu, Harrison Bader gave the Yanks more insurance with an RBI single. 6-2.

After the game, it was announced that the Yanks traded a minor league pitcher to Boston for OF Greg Allen and cash considerations. Allen, 30, was previously with the Yanks for 15 games in 2021. He has played for Cleveland (2017-2020), San Diego (2020), the Yankees (2021) and the Pirates (2022). He hasn’t played in the majors this season yet, but is expected to join the team in Cincy. We will see what the corresponding moves will be. The switch-hitter can play all three OF positions. He is just a .232 career hitter with an OPS+ of just 71 and I don’t like his BB/K ratio, but he is best for his speed (45 of 53 in his career in SB) and defense.

In return for Allen, the Yanks gave up minor league P Diego Hernandez, who is just 18 and who was 4-2, 2.10 in the Dominican Summer League last year in 12 games, five of them starts.

Judge solo HR (13)
Rizzo 2 hits, 2 RBI. 2-run HR (10)
Higashioka 2 RBI

Schmidt (W, 2-4) 5+ IP, 2 R, 5 H, 2 W, 6 K 6.00
J. Cordero (H, 2) 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 W, 2 K. 2.25
Abreu (H, 3) 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 1 K. 4.50
Peralta (H, 4) 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 2 K. 2.04
Ramirez 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 0 K 2.45

S.T. Game 1. Yanks lose, trade Voit. Place German on IL.

The Yanks had their first spring training game today, which they lost to the Pirates, 4-3, but first a couple of transactions.

P Domingo German was placed on the 60 day IL because of shoulder soreness.

Luke Voit was traded to San Diego for a 20 year old pitching prospect, Justin Lange. Lange is a former first round pick who has just 9 minor league games under his belt, but who apparenlty hit 102 MPH while in his senior year of high school. A project. One bit of trivia: Lange was born on 9/11/01.

In the game, newcomer SS Isiah Kiner-Falefa had 2 hits and minor league C Rodolfo Duran hit a HR.


Wesneski 3 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 1 W, 4 K. Gave up HR. A top pitching prospect.
Bristo (L, BS) 1 2/3 IP, 2 R, 3 H, 1 W, 4 K. Gave up HR.
Milam 1/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 0 K.
Marinaccio 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 2 K.
Nittoli 1 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 0 W, 0 K.
Spence 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 0 K.

Of note: Greg Allen, who was with the Yanks for 15 games last year, hit a 2-run HR in the game for Pittsburgh.

The Yanks placed 4 minor leaguers on the top 100 prospect list. #8 SS Anthony Volpe, #60 SS Oswald Peraza, #61 OF Jasson Dominguez, and #96 C Austin Wells.

Yanks sign Cordero, Inciarte to minor league deals.

With the lockout, not much is going on, but the Yankees did sign two to minor league deals yesterday.

RHP Jimmy Cordero, 30. Washington, 2018, Toronto 2019, and the White Sox 2019-2020. 3-5, 4.55, ERA+ 99 in 83 MLB games, all in relief. Pitched in 2 games, 3 2/3 scoreless innings of relief for the White Sox in the 2020 postseason. He missed all of 2021 after having had TJ surgery in March, 2021.

They also signed Ender Inciarte, 31, lefty hitting OF. Inciarte is a 1x All-Star, and 3x Gold Glove winner. He’s stolen 20 or more bases in three separate seasons. A .280 lifetime hitter, his 162 game average is .280-8-50 with 22 SB and an OPS+ of 91. But in 163 games since 2018, Inciarte has only hit .223-8-44, 12 SB and an OPS+ of only 67. He hit .215-2-10 for the Braves in 2021, OPS+ 55. He was released by the Braves in July so he wasn’t part of their WS Championship run. He signed with the Reds, didn’t play for them, and was released by the Reds in August. He has played with Arizona (2014-2015) and Atlanta (2016-2021).

Inciarte provides some depth (along with maybe Estevan Florial) in case Aaron Hicks can’t pick up the slack in CF. Hicks missed most of the 2021 season with a wrist injury and has been injury prone. Florial, 24, has shown flashes but despite hitting .300 (6 for 20) in the majors last year (and 7 for 23 in his MLB career), he only hit .219-17-47 with 13 SB between AA/AAA in 2021.

With Hicks injury last year, Brett Gardner was forced into more playing time than expected in 2021. Not only that, at times Aaron Judge started in CF, along with some appearances by journeymen Greg Allen and Jonathan Davis. Allen and Davis are both gone, and Gardner is now a free agent, but Gardner is 38 years old. Gardner only hit .222-10-39 in 2021, OPS+ 90. With Inciarte being younger, having had some speed and a lefty bat, you wonder if the signing is to replace Gardner on the roster with Inciarte and you wonder if this is a goodbye to the long-time Yankee in Gardner. Also, don’t be surprised if the Yankees still pursue someone else for CF.

Speaking of Judge, he just got married last week in Hawaii.

Six Hall of Famers named; and some Yankees news

Six new Hall of Famers were named yesterday, and I’ll get into them in a moment, but first some Yankees news.

First off, forget about Freddy Galvis as a possible short-term solution at SS. He’s headed to Japan to play.

Congrats to Yankees’ legend Derek Jeter who became a dad for the third time. Another girl, making 3 girls for him.

The Yanks may have interest in Japanese star Seiya Suzuki. Boston and Toronto also are said to have interest. Suzuki, primarily a RF, has played 3B and SS as well. He is 27 and a righty hitter. But he is pegged as a RF (4 Japanese Gold Gloves) and the Yanks are looking at CF, being that they have Judge for RF (unless they move Judge to CF, which isn’t likely). Suzuki can play CF, but is mostly a RF. But if they get Suzuki for LF, then Joey Gallo may be moved, and maybe moved for a CF. Other teams are said to be interested in Gallo, who only hit .160 for the Yanks after the Yanks got him from Texas. Suzuki hit .317-38-88 for his Japanese team in 2021, with 9 SB, and is a career .300+ hitter over there. In the last 4 years, he’s hit .319 and has averaged 30 HR a season. He doesn’t strike out much, either. (Info from MLBTR.com).

Roger Maris and Allie Reynolds fell far short of induction to the Hall of Fame by the Veteran’s Committee. Maris only got 3 votes or less, and Reynolds got 6, and 12 were needed.

Dick Allen missed by one vote.

Getting in were (and I’ll try to keep bios brief):

Gil Hodges. Hodges started as a catcher, but with Roy Campanella there for Brooklyn, moved to 1B. He also got a little time in at LF, RF and 3B, as well as one game each at 2B and CF. He played for the Dodgers (Brooklyn/LA) in 1943, then 1947-1961, and with the Mets 1962-1963. An 8x All-Star, he was on 2 WS Champs, 1955 and 1959. He hit 370 HR, including 4 in one game. He got MVP consideration 9x, and finished in the top 10 3x. He won 3 Gold Gloves. Hodges drove in 100 or more runs in each season 1949-1955. A Marine, he served in WWII. Twice he topped 40 HR in a season. His 162 g. average was .273-29-100, OPS+ 120. In WS play he hit .267-5-21 in 39 games. Later he became manager of the Senators (1963-1967) and Mets (1968-1971). He managed the Mets to the 1969 WS Championship. He was 321-444 as manager of Washington, and 339-309 as Mets manager. His #14 is retired by the Mets. He died of a heart attack two days before his 48th birthday in April of 1972. Played in WS of 1947, 1949, 1952, 1953, 1955, 1956 and 1959.

Jim Kaat. 16 Gold Glove Awards. 283 career wins (meanwhile, Tommy John, with 288 wins, is still not in the HOF). Washington Senators 1959-1960, Minnesota Twins 1961-1973, Chicago White Sox 1973-1975, Phillies 1976-1979, Yankees 1979-1980, Cardinals 1980-1983. 3x All-Star, WS Champ 1982. 5th in MVP voting in 1966 when Kaat led the AL with 25 wins. 1965 AL Pennant with Twins. Also a 20 game winner in 1974 and 1975. MVP consideration 1967 and 1975 as well, CYA consideration 1975. Average 162 game season 13-11, 3.45, ERA+ 108. Long time broadcaster. Hit .185 with 16 HR. Went 1-3, 4.01 in 9 postseason games, 5 starts. Went up against Koufax 3x in 1965 WS, going 1-2. 1965 AL Pennant, 1969, 1970, 1976, 1977, 1978 division champs, 1982 WS Champs.

Minnie Minoso. OF. Indians 1949, 1951. White Sox 1951-1957. Indians again, 1958-1959. White Sox again, 1960-1961. Cardinals 1962. Senators 1963. White Sox again, 1964, 1976!, 1980! Played at age 50 in 1976, going 1 for 8, and got in two games at age 54 in 1980. 9x All Star. Also Negro Leagues star 1946-1948. 2nd in ROY to Gil McDougald in 1951, when he was 4th in MVP voting. Led Majors in triples and AL in SB that year. Twice more led AL in triples, twice more in SB. 5x top 10 in MVP voting. 8x MVP consideration. 3x Gold Glove. 162 game average .291-16-91 with 18 SB, OPS+130. #9 retired by White Sox.

Tony Oliva. Twins 1962-1976. #6 retired by Twins. 3x Batting Champ. ROY 1964 and 4th in MVP voting. 2nd in MVP voting 1965, 1970. 5x top 10 mvp voting. MVP consideration 8x. Serious knee injury cost him most of 1972 season. Wasn’t the same after 1971. From 1964-1971 averaged .313-24-99 for 162 games, OPS+ 140. Led league in hits 5x, doubles 4x. Hit .314 in 13 postseason games with 3 HR, 5 RBI. 1965 AL Pennant, 1969 and 1970 division champs.

Buck O’Neil. 1st black coach in MLB history. Featured prominently in Ken Burns’ documentary on baseball giving his first hand account of life in the Negro Leagues. 1B in the Negro Leagues 1937-1943, 1946-1948. Career interrupted by WWII. 337 Negro League games, hit .258-9-175. OPS+ 97. In as Pioneer/Executive. Helped create the Negro Leagues Hall of Fame. Led Negro Leagues in doubles and RBI in 1940. 3x Negro Leagues All-Star. Won 1942 Negro Leagues WS. Managed 1948 Negro Leagues KC Monarchs, went 62-32. 1st place, lost that Negro Leagues WS in 7 games.

Bud Fowler. P, 3B, 2B. Black player in 1878, 1884-1890, and 1895. Often teams wouldn’t play if he played, because of his skin color, and that included his teammates. As a result, he played for many teams. Because of the time frame (he lived 1858-1913), records on him are sketchy.


Free agents and players lost on waivers.

Here is a list of free agents. We will see who, if anyone, the Yankees bring back.

Corey Kluber (doubtful. 36 in April, missed 1/2 of 2021)
Andrew Heaney (definitely not)
Anthony Rizzo (maybe)
Joely Rodriguez
Brett Gardner (at 38, could retire)
Darren O’Day (39, could retire)
Ryan LaMarre
Brody Koerner
Adam Warren

The best shot of anyone returning seems to be Rizzo, and that is a question mark.

These players were placed on waivers and claimed by another team.

Greg Allen by Pittsburgh.
Tim Locastro by Boston.
Andrew Velazquez by the Angels.

I don’t understand the love and weeping over Velazquez. He was a nice story. Hometown lad, nice glove. But in 68 plate appearances struck out 23x and drew only 1 walk. Hit .224. A .184 career hitter in the majors with an OPS+ of 43 (100 is average). Besides, Anthony Volpe and Oswald Peraza are their top two prospects, both a year or two away, and both are SS. Not only that, the Yanks will probably make a big splash on the free agent market (Corey Seager?) for a SS.

Lastly, Rob Brantly was outrighted off the roster right to the SWB roster.
UPDATE: He refused the assignment and became a free agent.
