S.T. Game 10. Minor League Pitchers can’t hold lead, Yanks fall 10-4.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks (6-3-1) built a 4-2 lead but some pitchers ticketed for the minors could not hold it and the Yanks fell 10-4 on Sunday.

Brett Gardner had an RBI double.

Rosell Herrera went 3 for 3 with 2 RBI and the way he is playing, he could beat out Tyler Wade for the last (utility) spot on the team. Herrera can play all three OF positions as well as 2B, SS and 3B.

Something concerning is that guys like Mike Tauchman and Gary Sanchez don’t have a hit yet and that Tyler Wade is 1 for 16, that hit being a HR. Kyle Higashioka is 1 for 11.

You would like some bats to wake up soon.

Pitching line:

Hale 1 2/3 IP, 2 R, 2 H, 1 W, 1 K.  19.29.  Not a good outing for Hale.

Otero 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K.  0.00
Avilan 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 2 K. 0.00.   Don’t sleep on him.
Kriske (H, 2) 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 0 K. 2.45  Don’t sleep on him, either.
Yajure (L, 0-1; H, 1)  1 1/3 IP, 3 R, 2 H, 1 W, 4 K.   11.57

S.T. Game 2. Andujar HRs, but Yanks lose 9-7.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks (0-2) lost to Tampa Bay 9-7 in their S.T. game today.

Good news: Miguel Andujar homered. Jonathan Loaisiga had a 1-2-3 inning. He is competing for the #5 starter job or a spot starter/long relief position.

There weren’t too many “major leaguers” who played. It was mostly minor leaguers. The only possible MLB players were Tyler Wade, Andujar, Luke Voit, maybe Thairo Estrada or David Hale, and that’s about it.

It came out today that Voit’s injury that sabotaged the second half of 2019 for him was worse than thought. He basically ripped everything. 3 ligaments on both sides of his groin had to be repaired in the off season. In the first half of last year, he had 17 HR and 50 RBI. Do the math. 34 and 100.

He feels fine now. Good sign. Even lost a little weight to make him a little more flexible. But that injury wasn’t just a sports hernia. It explains the big drop off in the second half.

Two hits for Chris Gittens today after he homered yesterday.

Estrada with a hit and an RBI.

Two hits and 2 RBI for OF Trey Amburgey. I like this kid. Righty hitter, 25. Hit .274-22-62 for AAA SWB last year. But no room for him at MLB level right now.

Pitching line:

Loaisiga 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 1 K   0.00  Nice
Hale 2/3 IP, 3 R, 4 H, 0 W, 1 K.  40.50   Not so hot.
Lyons 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K. Threw a WP that let a run in. 0.00
Schmidt 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 W, 0 K. 0.00  A top prospect.
Nelson 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 2 W, 0 K.   0.00
Yajure 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 W, 1 K.   0.00

Reeves 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K, 0.00

C Wynston Sawyer, who spent last year (43 Games) with the Twins AAA team, made two errors, I didn’t see the one, but the other was quite embarrassing.

Gerrit Cole will pitch tomorrow (Monday) night.
