Game 118. Yanks lose to Mets 8-5. Seve struggles again. CC to DL.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Yanks have a problem. Should they play in the wild card game, what pitcher starts?

Before last night’s game, CC Sabathia was placed on the DL, and once and now again Yankee George Kontos was brought up from the minors for the time being (until a starter, Chance Adams? is needed to fill CC’s spot). Also, Luke Voit was sent down and Ronald Torreyes brought back up.

So there is the issue with CC.

And now the issue with Luis Severino. Severino gave up a HR to the first batter of the game, and gave up another run before getting out of the first inning. 2-0 Mets before the Yanks came to bat.

Severino is still leading the majors in wins (15) but since July 1 is 2-4 with a 7.31 ERA. He is not trending as you would like heading down the stretch.

Whether it is tipping pitches or a mechanical issue, he has to be straightened out.

The Yanks tied the game in the third when Romine singled and Gardner walked. Stanton hit into a force play but and error on the play enabled Romine to score and Stanton to reach second. Hicks singled to tie the game.

But Severino gave up a two-run HR to an old Yankees’ nemesis, Jose Bautista, in the top of the fourth that put the Mets up 4-2.

The Yanks cut it to 4-3 in the fifth when Gardner doubled and Didi singled him home.

A.J. Cole was awful. He gave up a HR to ex-Yankee Todd Frazier in the sixth, and back-to-back HRs to Brandon Nimmo and Michael Conforto in the seventh. 7-3 Mets.

Miguel Andujar hit a two-run HR (18) in the bottom of the eighth for the Yanks to cut it to 7-5, but Zach Britton’s struggles continued (aided by a Gleyber Torres’ error) as the Mets got an insurance run in the top of the ninth, 8-5 Mets, the final score.

The Yanks have to get CC healthy, and get Severino and Britton on track. They also need Judge and Sanchez to get healthy, and Gleyber Torres (down to .261) to get out of his slump.

Otherwise, if they make the postseason, it could not be for long.

Meanwhile, they fall to 74-44, and 10 back of Boston. They are 3 1/2 up on Oakland for the top wild card seed.

AAA: SWB won the completion of a suspended game from 6/24, 4-3. Tyler Austin, traded to the Twins today, had hit a 3-run HR in that game. To show you how much things could change, Brandon Drury (since traded to Toronto) started that game as the DH, and Billy McKinney (traded to Toronto with Drury) started that game in CF. Ronald Torreyes started that game at 3B, took leave because of a family situation and returned today, and played 3 different positions as a result. Kyle Higashioka had started that game at C.  Tyler Wade had started at SS. I won’t get into more details. of course, Higashioka and Wade are with the big club at present.

Crazy.

Since I have had some requests and inquiries about a hitter who had a high batting average this year at Trenton:

Devyn Bolasky, 25, Bats and throws lefty. Just promoted to SWB from Trenton. Yes, he was hitting .365 at AA, but in just 38 games, and he has no power. .365-0-11. He isn’t speedy, either, since he has 0 SB. In 272 minor league games, he has a .272 batting average, but has hit just 3 HR and has stolen just 25 bases. Last year, with 4 different minor league teams, from Low A to AAA, he hit just .235-2-26 with just 2 SB. So I am not sold on him yet. Because he was hitting in the .380s a few weeks ago, some people were asking me about him.

In the majors: The Yanks won’t have to worry about Mike Moustakas this weekend anymore. KC traded him to Milwaukee. Meanwhile the Mets traded Asdrubal Cabrera to the Phillies.  Astros get Ryan Pressley from the Twins to help their bullpen.
