The Yankees found out today that Didi Gregorius will miss at least the first month of April. We’ll see if it is longer than that.
In tonight’s game, they lost 4-2 to Boston, getting just four hits and striking out 14x.
Matt Holliday’s 2-run HR accounted for the only runs.
Starlin Castro had 2 of the 4 hits.
Chris Carter has been awful this spring. He struck out twice today and is at .118. It could be he is there only until Tyler Austin is ready and is released, even though he is making $3.5 MM. He has to start showing something soon.
Bryan Mitchell wasn’t bad, despite the loss. I think he should get one of those two rotation spots.
Mitchell 4 1/3 IP, 2 R, 7 H, 0 walks, 7 K. Gave up 1 HR.
Chapman 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 walks and 2 K.
Layne 2/3 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 1 walk and 1 K.
Cessa (L) 2 Ip, 1 r, 2 H, 2 walks, 0 K. I think he is SWB bound
Niese 1 Ip, 1 R, 2 H, 0 walks, and 2 K.
