S.T. Game 27. Yanks fall, 11-3. Some injury concerns alleviated.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Maybe the signing of Gio Gonzalez made Domingo German try too hard today, because after a decent spring training, German had a rough day today, giving up 3 HR in an 11-3 loss to St. Louis.

Some injury concerns were alleviated today. Tyler Wade, who complained of hip tightness yesterday, felt much better today. Greg Bird’s elbow, hit by a pitch yesterday, swelled up, but X-rays, thankfully, were negative.

Hopefully, spring training instructor Lee Mazzilli is ok. He was hit in the head by a line drive during batting practice Wednesday in Tampa and was in the hospital for observation.

Gleyber Torres had a double and 2 RBI.
Gio Urshela had 2 hits.

German (L) 3 2/3 IP, 5 R, 6 H, 0 W, 4 K. Gave up 3 HR, 2 to Dexter Fowler.
Brothers 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K.
Tarpley 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K. Hasn’t given up a run this spring.
Reeves 1/3 IP, 2 R, 2 H, 2 W, 0 K.
Coshow 1 IP, 4 R. 5 H, 0 W, 2 K.
Diehl 1 2/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 2 K.

The Yanks are 15-8-4 this spring training. Opening Day is one week away.

One-time Yankee Ichiro Suzuki ended his career today in Japan. He played the first two games of the season for the Mariners, going 0 for 5.

S.T. Games 15 and 16. A tie and a win.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yankees had a split squad today, so first, the away squad, who tied, 2-2, with the Tigers today.

Since on the road, mostly the prospects and minor leaguers.

Brandon Wagner solo HR.

Miguel Andujar 2 hits.

Cortes 2 1/3 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K. Gave up HR (Miguel Cabera).
Coulombe 1 2/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 3 K
Adams 2 IP, 0 R, 3 H, 0 W, 2 K.
Coshow 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K.
Farquahar (H) 2/3 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 3 W, 0 K.
Hale (BS) 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H. 1 W, 2 K.
Brothers 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 1 K.

Despite the nice story Farquahar presents (the brain aneurysm last season), it is best he start in the minors before a possible call up.

The home game saw a 6-5 win (record 8-6-2).

Gardner 2 hits.

Zack Zehner GW 2-run HR.

Clint Frazier hit, RBI.

Gio Urshela solo HR.

Happ 4 IP, 3 R, 5 H, 0 W, 6 K. Gave up 2 HR. Ok this spring, not great yet. Looking for better. 1 WP.

Ottavino 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 3 K. Awesome.
Chapman (H) 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 w, 1 K.
Betances (BS) 1/3 IP, 2 R, 2 H, 1 W, 0 K.
Holder 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 0 K. 1 HBP.
Kahnle (W) 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 W, 1 K.

With the tie and win, the Yanks’ S.T. record is 8-6-2.

S.T. Game 11. Yanks fall 9-5. Besides Seve, CC to miss start of season too. Would Yanks use “opener”?

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks lost to the Cardinals, 9-5 today, to drop the spring training record to 5-5-1.

We know that Seve will miss time, and now the Yanks have said that because of the knee surgery and stent put in, that CC will begin the season on the injured list. Remember that once activated, CC has a five-game suspension to serve.

So two of the five starters will NOT be starting the season. As of now, GM Brian Cashman wants to plug from within, meaning no Dallas Keuchel, Gio Gonzalez or Edwin Jackson.

Gonzalez has been rumored to be someone the Yanks might consider, but he’d have to agree to a bullpen move once Severino and CC are ready.

I like Loaisiga, and he shows great potential to step in as a spot starter now, and to replace CC in the rotation in 2020, but he is a raw talent. 5 out of his 7 outs today K’s, but gave up 5 Runs in 2 1/3.

With both Severino and CC out, we are looking at Cessa, German and/or Loaisiga filling those two spots unless the Yanks sign someone.

Loaisiga (Johnny Lasagna) had mixed results today. Good: 5 K in 2 1/3 IP. Bad: 5 runs given up.

Austin Romine had a 3-run HR today, Gleyber Torres 2 hits. Prospect Trey Amburgey had 2 RBI.

Loaisiga (L) 2 1/3 IP, 4 R, 3 H, 2 W, 5 K. Gave up 1 HR
Harvey (BS) 2/3 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 0 W, 1 K.
Chapman 1 IP, 0 R , 1 H, 0 W, 1 K.
Coulombe 1 1/3 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 1 W, 1 K.
Diehl 1 1/3 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 0 W, 2 K.
Coshow 2/3 IP, 2 R, 3 H, 0 W, 0 K. Gave up 1 HR
Reeves 1 2/3 IP, 0 R , 1 H, 0 W, 1 K.

With Seve out until maybe late April, and CC out until about that time, could the Yanks, with their strong bullpen, consider an “opener” for a game or two in April?

Steven Wright of Boston drew an 80 game suspension (and would miss the postseason) for HGH ban. Hmm, why would a knuckleballer need HGH?

Jacoby Ellsbury (the Nowhere Man) is expected to join the Yanks in Tampa around March 17.

Hicks is still recovering from back pain.

The Yanks sent Domingo Acevedo down to Trenton, and sent Trevor Stephan and Brady Lail to minor league camp.

 

 

 

S.T. Game 9 (Away game of S/S). Voit homers but Yanks lose, 5-2.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks had a split squad today. For the sake of clarification, I made the home game S.T. Game 8 and the away game S.T. Game 9.

This is the away game, which the Yanks lost 5-2 to Toronto. They are 4-4-1 this spring training so far.

Luke Voit hit a solo HR.

D.J. LeMahieu had an RBI single.

Domingo German pitched well.

German 2 2/3 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 W, 4 K.
Coulombe 1/3 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 1 W, 1 K. Gave up HR (to ex-Yank Billy McKinney)
Hutchison 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 1 K.
Stephan (L, BS) 1 1/3 IP, 4 R, 3 ER, 3 H, 1 W, 0 K. Gave up HR.
Coshow 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K.
Sosebee 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 3 K.

Second bad outing for Stephan.

S.T. Game 6. Yanks, O’s Tie, 2-2.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Prospect Rashad Crawford’s two-run single with one out in the bottom of the ninth tied the game at 2, and the Yanks and O’s finished in that 2-2 tie last night.

Happ 2+ IP, 1 R, 2 H, 1 W 3 K. Gave up HR.
Green 1 1/3 IP 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 3 K.
Loaisiga 2 2/3 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 1 W, 1 K. Gave up 1 HR.
Coulombe 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K.
Kahnle 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 3 K.
Coshow 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 2 K.

The Yanks only got five hits in the game, the Orioles three.

Good pitching job by the Yanks. Happ gave up the HR to the first guy he faced in the third, then was taken out. The risk of trying to stretch a guy out in spring training, which you slowly need to do. Apparently he hit that wall.

Good job throughout, especially by Green and Kahnle, even Coshow. Loaisiga good, with just that one blip.

Update: I forgot to mention ex-Yankee Adam Warren signed with San Diego.

 

S.T. Game 1. Yanks lose, 8-5.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks got off to a 3-0 lead on Boston but lost 8-5 in their first spring training game this season.

The good:

Aaron Hicks had an RBI double.

Gleyber Torres homered.

Greg Bird was 2 for 2 with an opposite field double and a single to right.

Clint Frazier smoked a single up the middle and hit a long fly to right caught on the warning track.

Ryan McBroom hit a HR.

Tyler Wade had a double, as did Trey Amburgey.

The not so good:

A lot of pitchers the Yanks used in the game are pitchers that, quite frankly, we don’t want to see on the mound for the Yankees at any time this year.

They were pitchers destined for AAA or pitchers that are not so hot trying to stay in the majors by latching on to the Yanks or are pitching for the Yanks hoping to latch on to another club by pitching well now and having another club pick them up.

Cortes (L) 2 2/3 IP, 4 R, 6 H, 0 W, 3 K.
Hutchinson 1 IP, 2 R, 3 H, 1 W, 0 K. Gave up 3-run HR.
Coulombe 1 1 /3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K.
Coshow 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 1 K.
Brothers 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 0 K
Harvey 2/3 IP, 2 R, 3 H, 0 W, 1 K.
Diehl 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K.

Cortes has 4 games of MLB experience, 0-0, 7.71. 24, LHP,  AAA bound where in 35 games (25 starts) he is 9-10, 2.93.

Hutchinson is a guy the Yanks are looking at but a guy you wonder why they are even looking at him. A DFA candidate. The first four batters he faced today were a double, HR, single and walk. In 2018, 5 starts and 11 relief appearances for the Phillies and Texas. 2-2, 6.75. 32-23, 5.10 in his career. Hoping to just latch on to a team …. anywhere. As I mentioned, a DFA candidate hoping to (if he doesn’t make the Yanks) show himself off to someone else. He didn’t do that today.

Coulombe was 1-1, 4.56 for the Rockies in 2018, 6-4, 4.27 in his MLB career. Another marginal major leaguer like Hutchinson hoping to get a crack at the majors, maybe go to AAA with the Yanks or prove himself to another team. Another DFA candidate.

I don’t mean to be rough on Hutchinson or Coulombe, but remember last year when infielder Danny Espinosa, the former Nationals infielder, was in camp and was let go after just a couple of weeks? That is what I am thinking of Hutchinson and Coulombe. In for a look-see, but won’t be there long.

Coshow was lousy at AAA SWB last year, 1-4, 4.95.

Brothers pitched in just one MLB game last year. He was with Colorado 2011-2015 and with the Braves in 2017. 20-14, 3.79 in his MLB career.    

Harvey and Diehl are both AA or AAA bound.

The Yanks and Bosox didn’t use too many players today that would be considered for the MLB roster.

For the Yanks, it was Torres, Hicks, Andujar, Bird (maybe, he has to beat out Voit) and perhaps Frazier as far as guys you consider major leaguers.

None of the pitchers.

The Yanks face Tampa Bay at home tomorrow. 1 PM, MLB.
