|(6/12/15) The Yankees have outrighted pitcher Esmil Rogers to Triple-A following Friday's game, according to the Wall Street Journal. The Yankees did not announce a corresponding move, though they are expected to do so on Friday.
Rogers has the option of accepting the assignment to Triple-A Scranton, or refusing and becoming a free agent. The right-hander struggled this season, posting a 6.39 ERA in 31 innings of relief. He was scored upon in all but seven of his 17 appearances, and had just four hitless outings.
Yankees skipper on RP Esmil Rogers: 'I believe the stuff is there'
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/6/15) Yankees reliever Esmil Rogers had a rough outing on Friday against the Angels. Rogers entered the contest in the top of the ninth, with the Yankees leading 8-1.
But, he was unable to retire a batter, allowing five runs on four hits and a walk before getting the hook. The Yankees were able to hang on for the 8-7 win.
Despite the nightmare outing, manager Joe Girardi is supporting his 29-year-old right-hander.
"I believe the stuff is there," Girardi said Saturday, per the Star-Ledger. "We've seen it. He gets swings and misses, and he can get quick outs, and he has a good fastball, and a good curveball. But his stuff has been inconsistent, and part of that could be not working on a normal basis sometimes as a long man. But you've got to figure out a way to do that and be ready to pitch when you're called upon."
The poor performance on Friday lifted Rogers' ERA from 4.94 to 6.39, though he has struck 8.4 batters per-nine innings this season.
Yankees could go with six-man rotation for a while
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/17/15) The Yankees begin a stretch on Friday of 30 games in 31 days, so manager Joe Girardi said the team is considering adding a sixth starter to the rotation, reports MLB.com.|
"I wouldn't really call it a six-man rotation. I'd call it more of inserting a sixth man one time through, and my guess is you might see it," Girardi said. "Weather could play a role, so you just have to wait and see, but it's something that's in the back of our minds. We've kind of prepared ourselves for it."
Pitchers Bryan Mitchell , Esmil Rogers and Chase Whitley are among the candidates to fill the potentional sixth-man spot.
