Games 55 & 56. Yanks split DH with Tigers.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks split a DH with Detroit, winning the first game behind 3 HRs and Luis Severino 7-4, but losing the second game 4-2.

Clint Frazier was the 26th man for the DH today. Between games, Adam Warren was brought up and Tommy Kahnle was sent down.

It was an awful day for Aaron Judge, who went 0 for 9 for the day with 8 strikeouts.

Game 1:  Detroit got a run in the first on an RBI double by future HOF Miguel Cabrera. In the third, Gleyber Torres 10th HR of the season tied the game. Torres is the youngest Yankee to 10 career HR since Mickey Mantle.

The Yanks got six runs in the fourth inning. Greg Bird made it 2-1 with his second HR of the season. After that, Stanton and Didi singled, and Andujar singled to drive in a run. Frazier singled to make it 4-1. Romine hit a 3-run HR (4), 7-1. Frazier was sent back down after the DH (no room on the roster).

Detroit got an unearned run in the fifth off Severino, and two unearned runs in the ninth.

Bird solo HR
Torres solo HR
Romine 3-run HR.

Severino (W, 9-1, 2.20) 8 IP, 2 R, 1 ER, 4 H, 0 W, 10 K.
Holder 2/3 IP, 2 R, 0 ER, 2 H, 0 W, 0 K. 2.75
Chapman (S, 14) 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K. 1.46

Game 2: Lost 4-2. The Yanks struck out 14x. Judge with the platinum sombrero, 0 for 5, 5 strikeouts. It seems as if Domingo German pitches just well enough to lose. He’s still looking for his first MLB win. He didn’t pitch that badly, but it seems he really needs a game where the Yanks give him a lot of run support to get him off the zero-win schneid. Tanaka can give up 4 runs in 7 IP, and win 10-4, but it seems German can do it and is unlucky, and will lose 4-2 as he did tonight.

Detroit got one in the second. German reached for a ball and it went off his hand into LF for a double. Lucky he wasn’t hurt. A passed ball, walk, SF and Detroit was up 1-0.

The Yanks tied it in the third on a single by Frazier and triple by Gardner. They had the bases loaded with two out but Torres bounced back to the pitcher. In this inning, Stanton was HBP, and some hard feelings ensued. Stanton was hit in the face by the same pitcher a few years ago.

The Tigers got two in the fourth to go up 3-1. Stanton got his revenge in the sixth with HR #13 to make it 3-2.

But in the seventh, the Tigers got a run for the final of 4-2. Adam Warren relieved German with two out and a runner on second, but gave up a double and a couple of walks before getting out of the inning.

The Yanks were 0 for 10 w/RISP in this game.

German (L, 0-4, 5.44) 6 2/3 IP, 4 R, 7 H, 2 W, 3 K. The kid needs a break where he gets lots of run support.

Warren 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 3 W, 1 K. 2.79

So the 38-18 Yanks stay 1 game back of idle Boston.

In the first round of the MLB draft, the Yanks selected a switch-hitting and switch-throwing (!) catcher, high-schooler Anthony Siegler.

 

Game 50. Yanks fall to Astros 5-1.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

It’s tough for me to make a decision on Domingo German right now. He has had four MLB starts, and is still looking for his first MLB win. It seems like German has good stuff (he k’s more than one an inning) but that he can’t stay away from that one bad pitch or one bad inning.

Yesterday, one bad pitch, a 3-run HR in the second inning, doomed him and the Yanks as they fell to Justin Verlander and the Astros, 5-1.

The Astros got an unearned run in the fourth to make it 4-0 thanks to a Gleyber Torres error. Although Torres made a couple nice plays in the game, he also made a couple of rookie mistakes, the error here and also in getting picked off of second with two on and two out.

The Yanks’ only run of the game came via a Greg Bird HR (1) in the bottom of the seventh.

Defending AL MVP Jose Altuve homered for Houston in the eighth. 5-1.

The loss puts the 33-17 Yanks two back of Boston.

Bird 2 hits, solo HR.
Gregorius 2 hits.

German (L, 0-3, 5.45) 5 2/3 IP, 4 R, 3 R, 5 H, 2 W, 7 K. Gave up 1 HR.
Cole 2 1/3 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 0 W, 0 K. 6.75 (Was/NYY) Gave up 1 HR.
Kahnle 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K. 7.00

 

 

Game 48. Bird back, Toe sent down, Gray bombed in Yanks’ 11-4 loss.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Sonny Gray was bombed, and there were surprising and questionable decisions made yesterday before and during the Yanks’ 11-4 loss to the Angels Saturday night.

Greg Bird came off the DL and made his season debut, going 0 for 4 with 2 strikeouts. But the expected move, sending Tyler Austin down to AAA, didn’t happen. Instead, it was Ronald Torreyes, the supersub who was hitting .339, who went down to AAA. It was a tough, difficult decision to make, and one that shook up the team. Manager Aaron Boone even said it was undeserved, but the Yanks have a numbers crunch. You can only have so many players on a team, and as a result, some deserving players who could be starting for other teams are playing for SWB right now.

Which means, as an article in the NY Post states, that the Yanks really need to establish their identity. What is the roster of this team? And as for the guys at AAA who could be starting elsewhere, maybe the Yanks should look into dealing these guys. Especially for starting pitching help. And maybe include Sonny Gray in the deal for other starting pitchers.

In order to catch Boston in the AL East (the Yanks are now 32-16 and two games back. Still a great record but we are thinking ahead here) and/or to deal with Boston and Houston and maybe others in the postseason, the Yanks will need for Tanaka (5-2, but with a 4.95 ERA, ERA+ 88) and Gray (3-4, 5.98, ERA+ 73) to step it up or they need to trade for someone to bolster the rotation. CC turns 38 in July. Montgomery is on the DL. Maybe Justus Sheffield in the future comes up, but he isn’t ready yet and just came off the DL himself. The Yanks need another starter (Severino can’t do it himself) and they have the prospects to get one. Especially with guys like Torreyes, Drury and Clint Frazier. Also with guys like Estrada, Avelino and Tyler Wade, all infielders who are stuck behind Didi and Gleyber Torres.

They also, surprisingly, could use bullpen help. The bullpen, hyped as maybe the best ever, right now has guys with ERAs of 4.76 (Robertson), 4.71 (Betances), 4.82 (Shreve) and 7.88 (Kahnle).

How soon will Cashman pull the trigger?

As for Sonny Gray, he was bad again, getting knocked out in the fourth, and failing to hold a 4-1 lead. After Gray gave up a run in the top of the first, courtesy of a Mike Trout RBI double (Trout went 5 for 5, HR, 3 doubles, scored 3 runs and had 4 RBI), the Yanks took the lead back on back-to-back homers by Gardner (2) and Judge (14). For Gardner, it was his first HR since Opening Day.

Austin Romine sliced a 2-run HR (3) off the right-field foul pole in the bottom of the second to put the Yanks up 4-1. Then the roof fell in.

Gray gave up two runs in the third as the Angels cut the Yanks’ lead to 4-3.

In the fourth, Boone made a decision that I disagreed with. With two out and a man on third, he elected to pitch to Trout, who already had two doubles. You don’t let the big guy beat you. I was mentioning to a friend that I’d walk him. Now Boone did say that Trout would probably have stolen second anyway, taking the force away, and that you weren’t throwing through with the runner on third, and he didn’t want to put the go-ahead run on second. Fair enough. But Trout already had two doubles, and was the go-ahead run in the batter’s box. You guessed it. 2-run HR to give the Angels a 5-4 lead.

The Angels got four runs, two of them unearned, in the sixth off of Tommy Kahnle, and here I wonder about Kahnle being back with the team off of the DL. I don’t know if he had more time to be on the DL, but it seemed as if he was rushed back. (You wonder that about Bird, too). Kahnle had a couple of rehab stints before being reactivated on Friday, but he didn’t exactly put up impressive numbers in those rehab minor league games and he didn’t look good last night.

Chasen Shreve gave up a 2-run HR in the seventh to close out the scoring.

Judge 2 for 2 with 2 walks, solo HR.
Didi’s slump continues. Down to .234. We need him to snap out of it.
Andujar 2 hits.
Romine 2 hits, a 2-run HR

Gray (L, 3-4, 5.98) 3 2/3 IP, 5 R, 7 H, 3 W, 7 K. Gave up 1 HR.
Holder 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 3 K. 3.31
Kahnle 2/3 IP, 4 R, 2 ER, 2 H, 2 W, 0 K. 7.88
Shreve 1 1/3 IP, 2 R, 2 H, 1 W, 0 K. 4.82 Gave up 1 HR.
Cole 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 2 K. 7.11 (but 0.00 as a Yankee)
