Game 139. Offense and Bullpen waste a Tanaka gem. Yanks lose, 7-0, and are shutout for first time in 220 games.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Transaction news, first. From MLBtraderumors.com:

Edwin Encarnacion will be joining the Yanks tomorrow. See the minor league report for how he did today for SWB.

Also, the Yankees have traded minor league right-hander J.P. Feyereisen to the Brewers  in exchange for minor league infielder Brenny Escanio and international bonus pool space, per announcements from both clubs. Both Feyereisen, 26, and Escanio, 16, were eligible to be traded by virtue of the fact that neither has been on a 40-man roster at any point in 2019.

Feyereisen, like Ryan McBroom who was traded yesterday, needs to be added to the 40-man roster this winter, lest he be eligible for selection in the Rule 5 Draft, and this trade likely signifies that the Yankees didn’t feel they had room to do so.

That’s not for any lack of performance on the part of Feyereisen; to the contrary, in fact, he’s had a terrific season with the Yankees’ top affiliate in Scranton. Through 61 1/3 innings, the righty has pitched to a 2.49 ERA with 13.8 K/9, 4.6 BB/9, 0.88 HR/9 and a 36.7 percent ground-ball rate. That’s Feyereisen’s third tour in Triple-A, but he’s yet to receive a call to the bigs despite owning a collective 3.12 ERA and 195-to-76 K/BB ratio in 164 2/3 frames at that level.

The amount of bonus money acquired by the Yankees wasn’t specified, though international allotments must be traded in blocks of at least $250K. The international funds acquired here were the primary get for the Yanks, as Escanio was a relatively low-profile signing just two months ago on July 2 when this year’s international signing period kicked off. The Yankees spent the vast majority of their international pool to sign top outfield prospect Jasson Dominguez, and their lack of additional funds acquired to this point ultimately cost them the opportunity to sign another well-regarded outfield prospect: Jhon Diaz.

While it was reported on July 2 that Diaz had agreed to a roughly $1MM bonus with the Yankees, the organization needed to acquire additional pool allocations in order to make that agreement a reality. Just last week, though, Diaz signed with the Rays for a similar amount. With the Yankees having dedicated roughly $5MM of their $5.398MM pool to Dominguez, today’s deal will help them to further explore the market for remaining talent.

After a rain delay of 2 hours and 45 minutes, the game began and Masahiro Tanaka only gave up two runs in six innings, but a lack of offense and an off performance by Nestor Cortes, Jr. out of the bullpen doomed the Yanks (90-49) to a loss to Texas on Monday, Labor Day, 7-0.

It was the first time the Yanks were shutout in 220 games, second-longest steak all-time. The Yanks from August 1931 to August 1933 had a streak of 308 games.

Tanaka gave up a couple of hits and a SF in the first inning, and a HR in the fifth.

In the eighth, Cortes, who had struck out the side in the seventh, gave up four runs, three on a HR ball. All four runs scored with two out.

Tyler Lyons, a Sept. callup, gave up a HR in the ninth (NYY debut).

Tauchman 2 hits. The Yanks only had six total.

Tanaka (L, 10-8, 4.42) 6 IP, 2 R, 7 H, 2 W, 5 K. Gave up 1 HR.
Cortes, Jr. 2 IP, 4 R, 3 H, 1 W, 3 K. Gave up 1 HR.    5.03
Lyons 1 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 0 W, 1 K.  Gave up 1 HR.  10.80.

The magic # remains 15. The AL East lead is now 9. They fell into a tie with Houston (Houston would have the tiebreaker, having gone 4-3 against the Yanks) for best record in the AL.

Minor League Report. SWB tied for first with four games left.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

AAA: SWB (73-63) split a DH. With the split, they are tied for first in the International League North with four games to go. The loser between them and Syracuse (Mets) will most likely NOT make the playoffs as the wild card since they are 1 1/2 games behind that team right now.

Remember minor league DHs are seven-inning games. Both games went extras.

Reg. sched. game: Lost 9-5. Down 5-3, SWB scored once in the top of the sixth and then again in the top of the seventh to tie, but then in the bottom of the eighth, Chance Adams gave up a two-out grand slam to lose the game. A weird bottom of the eighth. It started with that rule of having a man start the inning at second. Adams then got a groundout but hit both of the next two batters to load the bases. After a strikeout, he gave up the grand slam.

LF Clint Frazier 2-run HR. 2 hits, solo HR for DH Wendell Rijo (tied game in top of the seventh).

Makeup of 8/28 postponement: SWB scored four in the top of the tenth to win 8-4 to preserve the tie on top of the division. LF Frazier 2 hits. DH Ryan McBroom 2 hits, 3 RBI, 2 HR (a 2-run and a solo shot). 2 hits, 2 RBI 3B Mandy Alvarez. J.P. Feyereisen (W, 10-2, 2.49) two scoreless IP, 5 K.
