Player Notes

  • Yankees officially promote Justus Sheffield
    Yankees purchased the contract of LHP Justus Sheffield from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Sheffield, 22, has finally arrived in the big leagues after compiling a 2.48 ERA and 123/50 K/BB ratio in 116 innings between Double- and Triple-A this season. The top prospect will join the Yankees' bullpen for now, but he should prepare as a starter next spring. It should be a fun sneak preview, at the very least. Today, 7:11 am
  • Yanks recall RHP German from Triple-A
    Yankees recalled RHP Domingo German from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: German owns a 5.68 ERA over 13 starts and six relief appearances this season, though he's shown some promise at times. He'll pitch out of the bullpen the rest of the way. Today, 7:10 am
  • Red Sox/Yankees pushed back to 7:05 ET
    Tuesday's game between the Red Sox and Yankees has been pushed back to 7:05 p.m. ET.

    Advice: The game was originally scheduled for 1:05 p.m. ET, but they don't want to take any chances with rain in the forecast this afternoon in New York. It's expected to clear off by the evening. J.A. Happ will pitch for New York while Nathan Eovaldi will make the start for Boston. Today, 6:48 am
  • Gray allows six over two innings in loss
    Jon Gray allowed six runs in just two innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Monday.

    Advice: Yikes. Gray just didn't have it in this one, allowing seven hits and two walks while striking out just one. Two of those hits were homers, and Gray's ERA balloons to 5.07 after the poor start. The analytics say that Gray has deserved better than that over his 163 1/3 innings, but it doesn't help you much. He'll try to rebound on Sunday against the Diamondbacks. Yesterday, 10:26 pm
  • Ryu strong over seven shutout innings in win
    Hyun-Jin Ryu hurled seven scoreless innings in a victory over the Rockies on Monday.

    Advice: The Dodgers needed a strong start from Ryu, and boy did they ever get it. He scattered four hits, and he didn't walk anyone while striking out five. The left-hander had pitched well as of late while allowing a large number of hits. That wasn't the case on Monday. He now boasts a 2.18 ERA and impressive 78/13 K/BB ratio over 70 1/3 innings accumulated over 13 starts. We'll see Ryu back on the mound on Sunday against the Padres. Yesterday, 10:22 pm
  • Mitchell pitches poorly in loss to Giants
    Bryan Mitchell allowed nine hits and four runs over five innings in a loss to the Giants on Monday.

    Advice: Mitchell didn't walk anyone and struck out four. End of positives. The former Yankees hurler pitched well in his previous two starts, but this was the Mitchell we've become accustomed to seeing; at least as a starter, anyway. His ERA jumps up to 6.16 with an ugly 1.83 WHIP in 64 1/3 inning. He'll pitch again against the Giants next Monday. Yesterday, 10:01 pm
  • Glasnow spins six shutout innings vs. Rangers
    Tyler Glasnow whiffed six batters over six shutout innings in a win over the Rangers on Monday.

    Advice: Glasnow scattered a pair of singles over six scoreless frames. He was in complete control of his electric arsenal, issuing just a pair of walks in the contest. He was also extremely efficient, throwing 49 of 86 pitches for strikes in this one. The 25-year-old right-hander owns a 1-4 record with a 4.06 ERA and 49/14 K/BB ratio in nine starts since being acquired from the Pirates on July 31. He’ll face the Blue Jays on the road in his next start on Saturday. Yesterday, 9:58 pm
  • Smith picks up 13th save on Monday
    Will Smith hurled a scoreless ninth on Monday to give him his 13th save of the year against the Padres.

    Advice: Smith didn't strike anyone out, but the Padres were aggressive and he was able to get out of the inning with just 14 pitches. The scoreless inning lowers his ERA to 1.80 on the season, and he's 13-for-16 in save chances with 66 strikeouts over an even 50 innings pitched. Yesterday, 9:58 pm
  • Suarez pitches into eighth in win over Padres
    Andrew Suarez allowed just two runs on four hits over 7 2/3 innings in a victory over the Padres on Monday.

    Advice: Suarez allowed a solo homer to Austin Hedges, but outside of that, he limited the hard contact against the (bad) Padres lineup while walking two and striking out three. Suarez has been one of the bright spots for the Giants this year, and while he's never going to miss enough bats to be an elite pitcher, done enough -- with the exception of a few clunkers -- to suggest he can be a long-term option. He'll take a 4.24 ERA into his next start on Sunday against the Cardinals. Yesterday, 9:56 pm
  • Sampson allows two runs in loss to Rays
    Adrian Sampson allowed two runs over five innings in a loss to the Rays on Monday.

    Advice: Sampson surrendered six hits, including a solo homer to Ji-Man Choi in the sixth inning. He struck out a pair of batters and only issued one walk. The 26-year-old right-hander turned in a quality start, but got zero support from the Rangers offense in this one. He's 0-2 with a 4.09 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 5/2 K/BB ratio in three appearances (two starts) since being called up from Triple-A Round Rock earlier this month. He’ll face the Mariners at home in his next start on Sunday. Yesterday, 9:51 pm
  • Sergio Romo records 22nd save
    Sergio Romo fired a scoreless ninth inning to record his 22nd save of the year against the Rangers on Monday.

    Advice: Romo was summoned to preserve a three-run lead in the ninth inning and worked around a two-out walk to slam the door on the Rangers. He struck out a pair of batters in the frame. The 35-year-old veteran righty has allowed only five runs in 22 appearances since the All-Star break. He's 3-3 with a 3.30 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 69/19 K/BB ratio in 68 appearances (five starts). Yesterday, 9:47 pm
  • Corbin fans seven over six in loss to Cubs
    Patrick Corbin fanned seven hitters while allowing three runs over six innings in a loss to the Cubs on Monday.

    Advice: Corbin was mostly solid on Monday, but a three-run sixth inning that was highlighted by a two-run shot by Javier Baez combined with Kyle Hendricks' excellent start gave him the loss. The seven strikeouts give the southpaw 237 in 192 innings, giving him a strong chance to finish the year with a 250 strikeout year. He'll take a 3.09 ERA and 1.03 WHIP into his next start against the Rockies on Sunday. Yesterday, 9:34 pm
  • Hendricks sensational in victory over D-Backs
    Kyle Hendricks went 8 2/3 innings while allowing just one run on three hits with eight strikeouts in a 5-1 win over the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    Advice: Hendrick was sensational, allowing just two players to reach base before the ninth inning when he allowed a solo homer to A.J. Pollock and single to Paul Goldschmidt before exiting. After scuffling in the middle of August, the right-hander is pitching exceptionally well as of late, and his ERA has dropped from 4.11 on August 11 to the 3.58 mark it is on Monday. He should have another strong start on Sunday against the White Sox. Yesterday, 9:30 pm
  • Richards gives up four runs in no-decision
    Trevor Richards surrendered four runs over five innings Monday in a no-decision against the Nationals.

    Advice: Richards served up five hits, including a pair of homers -- a solo shot to Victor Robles and a two-run blast to Anthony Rendon -- in the third inning. He’s struggled mightily in the second half, posting a 5.22 ERA in 10 starts since the All-Star break. The 25-year-old right-hander is 3-9 with a 4.95 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 113/51 K/BB ratio in 23 starts. He'll take on the Reds at home in his next start on Sunday. Yesterday, 9:22 pm
  • Adam Conley nets third save
    Adam Conley worked a scoreless ninth inning to record his third save of the year Monday in the Marlins' win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Conley was summoned to protect a three-run lead in the ninth inning and needed just 13 pitches to slam the door on the Nationals. The 28-year-old southpaw struck out Wilmer Difo to begin the frame before getting Mark Reynolds and Matt Wieters to fly out to center field. There aren't a ton of save opportunities in Miami, but it wouldn't be shocking to see the remaining ones divided up between Drew Steckenrider and Conley based on matchups over the final two weeks. Yesterday, 9:18 pm
  • Erick Fedde strikes out six in no-decision
    Erick Fedde yielded two runs on two hits over 4 1/3 innings Monday in a no-decision against the Marlins.

    Advice: Fedde retired 11 of the first 14 batters he faced to open the contest before serving up back-to-back walks to begin the fifth inning and a two-run double to Starlin Castro, which chased him from the contest, later in the frame. The 25-year-old right-hander struck out six batters and also issued four walks. He struggled with efficiency in this one, throwing just 51 of 93 pitches for strikes and didn’t last long enough to qualify for a win. He’s 1-0 with a 3.60 ERA in three starts since being recalled from Triple-A Syracuse earlier this month. He’s 2-3 with an uninspiring 5.02 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 41/17 K/BB ratio in nine big-league starts this year. He’ll face the Mets at home in his next start on Sunday. Yesterday, 9:18 pm
  • Mikolas earns 16th win Monday versus Braves
    Miles Mikolas earned his 16th win of the season on Monday night against the Braves.

    Advice: Mikolas struck out six and yielded just one walk. The two runs he gave up came on a home run by Freddie Freeman in the bottom of the third. Mikolas, one of the best signings of the offseason, is 16-4 with a 3.01 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 132/29 K/BB ratio in 185 2/3 innings (30 starts) this year with St. Louis. He'll get the Giants at home next. Yesterday, 8:24 pm
  • Mets could shut SP Zack Wheeler down
    Mets manager Mickey Callaway said after Zack Wheeler's start Monday that the righty could be shut down for the season due to his workload.

    Advice: Wheeler has thrown 187 1/3 innings this season between his 29 starts in the majors and one outing in the minors. It's only two innings more than his previous career high, but that came in 2014 and he completed just 87 1/3 frames from 2015-17 because of injuries. Wheeler hasn't shown any signs of wearing down, but it makes sense for the Mets to be careful with him following his breakout season. The righty is arbitration-eligible for a final time this winter. Yesterday, 7:38 pm
  • Gerrit Cole pushed back to Friday
    Gerrit Cole's next scheduled start has been pushed back to Friday against the Angels.

    Advice: Cole had been slated to pitch Tuesday versus the Mariners, but the Astros apparently want to give him some extra rest. Setting things up for their playoff rotation was surely a consideration, as well. Josh James will make a spot start Tuesday. Yesterday, 2:11 pm
  • Bauer could pitch in relief in postseason
    Indians president Chris Antonetti said on MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM on Monday that Trevor Bauer (leg) pitching out of the bullpen in the postseason is "something we’ve thought about."

    Advice: Bauer has been out since mid-August with a fractured fibula, but he threw a successful bullpen session on Saturday in Cleveland and will progress to facing live hitters on Tuesday. He doesn't sound far off from a return to game action, but obviously there's not enough time to get stretched out before the end of the regular season. He could still be quite a weapon for the Indians during the postseason even if he isn't available in a starting capacity. Yesterday, 8:23 am
    10-Day DL
