Game 38. Yanks fall, 5-3.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks lost to Arizona and Zach Greinke Tuesday night 5-3 to drop to 16-22. With the quarter-pole of the season approaching, it is apparent some changes have to be made.

Here are just a couple of suggestions. Constructive criticism, if you will.

The Yanks are 1-11 with Pineda and Severino, with a combined ERA close to 7.00. They are 15-11 otherwise. Pineda does have options. The Yanks should consider removing both from the rotation and sending both to AAA to get straightened out or should even consider trading Pineda (but who’d take him right now?). Even John Sterling, on air, was exasperated by Pineda. Such talent, but wasting it.

But the Yanks really don’t have anyone to bring up. The loss of Bryan Mitchell really hurts here. You can’t get something for nothing in a trade. You’d have to give up a top prospect.

But the Yanks can’t just keep throwing Pineda and Severino out there.Some change has to be made, be it a promotion/demotion or a trade.

The Angels just signed Tim Lincecum. The former CYA isn’t what he used to be, but I wonder if the Yanks had any interest. They should have, considering the struggles of Pineda and Severino. Heck, maybe the Yanks could talk Mark Buehrle out of retirement.

The Yanks should also consider dropping Mark Teixeira down in the lineup. Teix, 0 for 4 with 3 strikeouts last night, has 0 HR and 3 RBI since April 13. You can’t just keep batting him 3rd or 4th. Here is where the loss of Greg Bird hurts.

Starlin Castro homered (5) in the second to give the Yanks a 1-0 lead but the offense didn’t do too much against Grienke. They did get two in the eighth to make the score close. Losing the DH in an NL park the past two games hasn’t helped.

Pineda (L, 1-5, 6.60) 5 IP, 5 R, 9 H, 1 walk, 9 K. Gave up 1 HR.
9 K in 5 inn, but 5 runs given up.
Shreve 2 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 walks, 2 K. 3.71.
Yates 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 walks, 1.76.

Not only did the Yanks lose last night, but all their affiliates did too.

AAA: SWB lost 8-1. 2 hits for Swisher. Aaron Judge is at .327. You wonder if Judge could be called up to replace Hicks if Hicks (1 for 20) keeps struggling.

High A: Tampa lost 8-4. 2 hits, solo HR LF Mark Payton.

S.T. Games 29/30. Yanks lose 2. Mitchell out 3 months.


On a day when the Yanks found out Bryan Mitchell has a broken toe with Grade 3 turf toe, may need surgery and be out three months, they lost both exhibition games as the squad was split.

In one game, Michael Pineda gave up 4 HR (albeit, a strong wind was blowing out) as the Yanks lost 9-1 to St. Louis.

Pineda (L) 5  IP, 6 R, 7 H, 0 walks and 4 K. Gave up 4 HR
Chapman 1 Ip, 0 R, 0 H, 0 walks, 2 K.
Swarzak 2/3 IP, 3 R, 4 H, 1 walk, 0 K. Gave up HR
Pinder 1 1/3 0 R, 0 H, 1 walk, 0 K.
Tracy 1 IP, 0 R 0 H, 0 walks, 2 K.

They lost the other game 10-6 to Detroit. They are 13-15-2 for the spring.

Castro 2 hits. Romine 3 for 3, HR, 2 RBI. Mateo 2 RBI. Parmalee 2 hits, rbi.

Green (L) 4 1/3, 6 R, 5 ER, 6 H, 2 walks, 4 K. Gave up 4 HR
Webb 2 1/3, 3 R, 3 H, 1 walk, 0 K.
Mullee 1 1/3 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 0 walks, 3 K. Gave up HR.

Rough day for the pitchers.

Johnny Barbato and Luis Cessa made the bullpen. They were to make it before Miller and Mitchell got hurt. Miller wants to pitch through the injury to his non-throwing hand. We’ll see. But a sub must be found for Mitchell….and maybe Miller, too.

Romine is the backup catcher, Torreyes the backup IF.

The fifth starter hasn’t been named yet between CC and Nova.

Barbato won the J.P. Dawson award as best rookie in camp.
