NS. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Jordan Montgomery has hidden one of the better teams in the AL East for the second time.
The left-hander threw five goalless innings in the Yankees’ 4-3 win over the Rays on Tuesday night, starting from a 5² / ₃ scoreless inning outing in Boston.
« When I’m aggressive and competitive out there, I feel like I’m one of the better pitchers in the league, » he said. “Then my mind gets in the way and I’m trying to do too much.”
That wasn’t the case on Tuesday at Tropicana Field, despite Montgomery’s hard work, 51 pitches in the first two innings and 102 to five He allowed three runs or fewer in seven straight starts, although the Yankees struggled to score behind him.
Clint Frazier spent Monday and Tuesday undergoing a series of neurological tests, while the Yankees try to figure out what’s wrong with the left fielder, who has been on the injured list since July 2nd.
Manager Aaron Boone said the team hoped to learn more on Wednesday. Boone added that the « doesn’t seem to be » problem is related to the concussion symptoms that have plagued Frazier in the past.
When Frazier first went to the IL, the Yankees said it was due to dizziness has since been excluded. A visual problem is still not ruled out, according to Boone.
Clay Holmes was available outside the bullpen on Tuesday but couldn’t serve. The right-hander was acquired on Monday in exchange for the infielder Hoy Jun Park and Diego Castillo in exchange for the Pirates.
“We are delighted to have it. We think he’s already very tough on right-handed people and has what it takes to go somewhere else, « Boone said of the 28-year-old.
» He’s a lot better than his ERA [4.93] suggests, « said Boone of Holmes. “He’s got a really good arm and makes us look really interesting.” Boone called Holmes a “real assassin” and said they “felt like he had a place in this game to be a real one to be a good helper. ”
One of the reasons the Yankees felt the need for Bullpen help is the lack of right-handed Michael King, who suffered a bruised middle finger lifting weights and hit them 60-day IL was relocated. Boone said King saw a hand specialist Tuesday, had one more week not to throw, and could start a throwing program next week.
Kyle Higashioka returned from the COVID-19 IL on Tuesday and will likely catch Gerrit Cole on Thursday, Boone said. The manager pointed out that Thursday would be a day game after a night game and a way to give Gary Sanchez a day off. Starter scheduled for Wednesday, Nestor Cortes Jr., said he believed he could throw 50-60 pitches on his second appearance and first start since returning from the COVID-19 IL.
Luis Severino threw on Tuesday another bullpen session with the Yankees still weighing his next move. Severino could organize another live punch training or start a rehab with the minors. The team must also determine how much Severino should rebuild, whether to take him to 50-60 pitches or wait until he has reached or is close to the endurance of the starter.
Yoendrys Gomez, a 21-year-old right-handed player, became the newest Low-A Tampa player to be inducted into the COVID-19 IL. Gomez is on the 40-man squad.
