S.T. Game 8. Severino struggles again as Yanks lose to Phillies, 6-5.

A non-roster invitee (Ryan Weber) trying to make the team who gives up 3 runs to lose the game doesn’t bother me that much. Performances like that means he doesn’t make the team. He’s sent to the minors or released.

What does bother me is a member of your starting staff (Luis Severino) struggling greatly.

Such was the case as the Yankees (2-5-1 in spring training) lost to the Phillies, 6-5 on Friday afternoon.

Kyle Higashioka was 3 for 3 with 2 home runs and 3 RBI. Marwin Gonzalez (don’t be surprised if his versatility lets him make the team) had an RBI, as did minor leaguer Brandon Lockridge. D.J. LeMahieu had 2 hits and walked. Aaron Judge walked three times.

The Pitching line:

Severino 1 2/3 IP, 3 R, 4 H, 4 W, 0 K.
Coleman 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K.
Weissert 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K.

Banuelos 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 3 K.
Weber (BS, L) 2 IP, 3 R, 4 H, 0 W, 3 K.

MLB network will have a documentary on Don Mattingly on April 3.

I saw a picture of the damage Yankees’ Low A Tampa manager Rachel Balkovec received. It’s nasty. Lucky she’s ok, but she will have a shiner for a while after being struck in the face from a batted ball.

Game 11. Yanks embarrassed, 14-1.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Before the game, a couple of moves. The Yanks brought up OF Shane Robinson and DFA’d Jace Peterson.

They also made a minor league move, trading with the Mets and getting L.J. Mazzilli, Lee’s kid, for OF Kendall Coleman. A righty bat, Mazzilli, 27, has mostly played 2B, and spent most of last year in AA. In 110 games between AA/AAA last year, he hit .254-5-40. He was suspended a few years back for 50 games for a drug violation. Coleman, 22, a lefty hitting OF, has barely made it up to low A Charleston, and has struggled to a .207 average in his minor league career.

The pitching duel was between the CYA runnerup last year, Chris Sale, and Luis Severino, who finished third.

Seve didn’t have it (a friend told me that Rick Sutcliffe on ESPN suggested that Severino was tipping his pitches) and the bullpen was horrible, giving up nine in the sixth, in a 14-1 Yankees’ loss that dropped them under .500 to 5-6 on the season.

Meanwhile, after an Opening Day loss, Boston has won nine in a row and are 4 1/2 up on the Yanks.

An Aaron Judge HR (3) was the only highlight of the night. He had 3 hits. Didi had 2.

After two strikeouts, Giancarlo Stanton had a single and double, hopefully signs he is snapping out of it. One article I read yesterday suggested that Stanton is like Teixeira in that both would always get off to slow starts, then heat up.

But you have to wonder when Gary Sanchez will be dropped in the lineup or when he’ll wake up. Batting fourth or fifth all year, Sanchez is now 2 for 36.

Tyler Wade is only at .136. If Gleyber Torres heats up, you have to wonder if there could be a switch there. Miguel Andujar is struggling at .125. An Andujar error led to six unearned runs. The kid’s aren’t alright.

Too many grand slams given up. I can remember Robertson gave one up in Toronto, Holder in the extra inning loss at home to Baltimore, and now Shreve last night.

Severino (L, 2-1, 3.50) 5 IP, 5 R, 8 H, 3 W, 6 K.
Kahnle 2/3 IP, 5 R, 3 ER, 2 H, 3 W, 0 K. 7.11
Shreve 1 1/3 IP, 4 R, 0 ER, 1 H, 1 W, 3 K. 0.00. Gave up grand slam.
Cessa 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K. 0.00

Not much more to say about this game. It was a stinker.

 

 

 

 

Game 119. Rain and bullpen flush Yanks lead in 12-6 loss. Bad news on Eovaldi.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

After 4 1/2 innings, things looked good for the Yanks. They had a  6-0 lead, built mostly by two home runs by Gary Sanchez. (The REAL Sanchise, not Mark?)

Then came a rain delay, and everything changed. Michael Pineda, who pitched five shutout innings, had to be removed after the delay, and the Yanks’ bullpen was awful in turning a 6-0 lead into a 12-6 loss.

Didi Gregorius homered in the first (16) to give the Yanks a 1-0 lead. Sanchez’ solo HR in the second made it 2-0.

Sanchez’ second HR of the game (4), a 3-run shot,  made it 5-0 in the fourth. After the rain delay was over, Didi got an RBI single in the bottom of the fifth.

But Anthony Swarzak, replacing Pineda, gave up four runs in the sixth, and in the eighth, Toronto got 8 runs off of Adam Warren (4) and Chasen Shreve (4). Ugh.

Earlier in the day, the Yankees received bad news on Nathan Eovaldi. Eovaldi will need two surgeries on his elbow. He tore the flexor tendon off of the bone, and also tore his UCL. Eovaldi, who had Tommy John surgery before, will need it again as one of the two surgeries. He’ll miss the rest of this year and all of 2017. He is a free agent after 2017, and after this, would be a risky sign. It’s possible that not only his Yankee career, but his career, period, could be over.

Pineda 5 IP, 0 R, 4 H, 0 walks, 2 K. 4.89
Swarzak 2/3 IP, 4 R, 4 H, 0 walks, 2 K. Gave up 2 HR. 6.23

Clippard (H, 17) 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 walks, 2 K. 3.74 (Az/NYY)
Warren (BS, 2; L, 4-3, 5.24) 1/3 IP, 4 R, 3 H, 1 walk, 0 K. Gave up 2 HR. (Cubs/NYY)
Shreve 0 IP, 4 R, 2 H, 2 walks, 0 K. 1 HBP. 5.33 Faced 5 batters, all reached, 4 scored.
Parker 1 2/3 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 walks, 2 K.   1.69 (Sea/NYY)

You wish Girardi would have just kept Layne & Clippard in there.

The loss puts the Yanks at 61-58.

Choo-Choo Coleman, a catcher on the 1962 Mets, died Monday. He was a few days short of 79.
