NFT: 4.19 Yankee Thread

kash94 : 4/19/2017 10:40 am
Streak comes to an end at 8 yesterday. However, Severino put up a sensational start - recording 10 SO over 8 innings while allowing only 3 hits and 3 ER. So far, so good with the decision to keep him in the rotation.

Few other notes:
1- Severino became the youngest Yankee pitcher ever to record 10+ SO and 0 BB in a start. He also became the youngest Yankee to record 9+ SO in back-to-back starts since Al Leiter in 1989.
2- Didi starting rehab games on Friday.
3- Gleyber Torres has bicep tendinitis. He'll have an MRI soon.
4- Clint Frazier had a homerun yesterday. Starting to get hot
5- Despite the loss yesterday and the early season struggles, the Yankees have the best run differential in the AL by 6 runs. They are tied with the Dodgers for the second best run differential in the MLB.

Can they keep it up

Yesterday was also the first loss this season at Yankee Stadium.

2 swept series TB and Cards.
... and, tied for first place - doesn't mean much after 14 games but  
Del Shofner : 4/19/2017 10:50 am : link
it's better than the alternative.
Luis Cessa and Chad Green  
kash94 : 4/19/2017 10:55 am : link
the Yankees two backup starters, have had nice starts to the season as well.

Cessa
2 Starts
12.2 Innings
1.42 ERA
1.11 WHIP
11 SO

Green
2 Starts
12 Innings
3.00 ERA
1.33 WHIP
15 SO
Good stuff

I was a little disappointed in last night's game, but I'm also realistic in knowing that over the long haul, there are plenty of losses. Only game in the world where you lose a third or more of your games and still end up world champions.

Very intrigued by Severino who I had given up on in my head. He's always had the stuff to be a champion, but I had questions about his mental makeup which is just as important as having a great arm. Baseball history is littered with pitchers who flamed out even though they had a cannon for an arm or could throw a ten foot hook, but never learned the mental aspect of the game. Seems to me Severino is now getting the pitchers' brain that is needed to be a star. And he's so young that he's just starting on his long term run as a Yankee great (knock on wood)

Frazier  
DCOrange : 4/19/2017 11:00 am : link
Hits a home run and he's getting hot? Comical. He's 4 for 15 over his last 4 games with no 2 hit games since April 9 (his only one). IMO he is the most likely of all the super prospects to fail to match the hype. Obviously hope I am wrong but his 4 year career to date does not match the hype regardless of his "legendary" bat speed.
Good to hear about Cessa and Green  
MadPlaid : 4/19/2017 11:01 am : link
Good pitching depth is a must for any successful franchise. Also, if they keep producing like this, the Yankees will be less likely to trade assets for starting pitching.

I have not heard anything about Chance Adams. Is there any word on how well his season has started?
Adams has picked right up where he left off  
Greg from LI : 4/19/2017 11:13 am : link
Was just named the first Eastern League Pitcher of the Week. 2-0, 11.1 IP, 3 R(only 1 earned), 4 H, 13 K, 6 BB.
Adams and Justus Sheffield  
giants#1 : 4/19/2017 11:15 am : link
are both off to great starts for Trenton.

Adams: 2 GS 11.1 IP 4 H 6 BB 13 SO 0.79 ERA 0.88 WHIP
Sheffield: 2 GS 11.2 IP 5 H 7 BB 11 SO 0.77 ERA 1.03 WHIP

Only thing not to like so far (for both of them) is the BBs.
Sanchez  
kash94 : 4/19/2017 11:45 am : link
throwing today. Still a few weeks away.
Even  
mitch300 : 4/19/2017 11:59 am : link
though they lost and did not get a hit in the outfield, the fact that they never gave up and actuaslly had the winning run at the plate in the 9th is very encouraging.
Patience  
GiantJake : 4/19/2017 12:00 pm : link
The Yanks are off to a good start and I hope they continue to practice patience. Patience with Severino and Montgomery. Patience with Didi and Sanchez. Patience with Judge. Patience with Frazier, Torres and Chance Adams. The season is a marathon. The weather hasn't even gotten warm yet. Like it or not, the team is rebuilding on the fly and it's not just about this year. Patience!
Severino  
PaulN : 4/19/2017 1:59 pm : link
And Montgomery have given the yanks some real hope for this season, can they maintain this level, we'll see but they are showing us that they could be for real. With Cessa and Green pitching so well also, this gives us even more hope, since they are essentially the 6th and 7th starters, and with the season such a marathon as has been said, we will probably need both of these guys at some point.

At some point people are going to have to acknowledge this kids as a front of the line pitching prospect. I think analysts unfairly ding him because he used to be a reliever. But his results as a starter are consistently outstanding.

Thats the best news of all. Man at first that injury looked like a 4 monther or worse.
Some talent evaluators also downgrade Adams because he's short

On top of it the guy he puts in (Pete Kozma) boots an easy double play ball(which would have got Severino out of the inning) before Garcia's 3 run bomb. Why?? Are they trying to showcase the guy for something in a trade? Didi can not get back fast enough.

Two things:
#1) it would not have gotten Severino out of the inning. It would have been two outs with Abreu coming up. I doubt Abreu bunts and pops up with two out and nobody on base.

#2) Kozma makes that play 99 times out of 100. Errors happen and they happen at bad times - just like hanging a breaking ball to a guy hitting .450 is bad. While I agree that it was "dumb" to give Headley the night off when he is hot, it is necessary in the long run that the older guys, especially, get days off.

Unfortunate, but if they win 8 and lose one, we'll all take that! Hell win 3 lose 2 gets you 96 wins.

Thank you for the details about Adams and Sheffield. Nice to see they are doing really well. Wish the walks were down, but I will take what I can take.
He really is something special.

Loved how Judge went opposite field single. If he continues to cover the plate he will be a very difficult out with power.
Would any catcher block Judge

Frazier still hot  
DCOrange : 4/19/2017 8:35 pm : link
0-4 with 3 strikeouts. Now at .211. 10Ks and 8 hits. Good news is his bat speed when he misses continues to be incredible.

Good news is Chance Adams pitching yet another gem.

Stat of the day - Hoy Jun Park has 8 errors in 11 games. Hitting .390 with 2 HRs won't matter with that fielding.
