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.
Esmil Rogers pitches 4 2/3 innings of relief in losing effort
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/11/15) Yankees pitcher Esmil Rogers tossed 4 2/3 innings and was pegged with the loss Friday night against Boston in 19 innings. |
Rogers allowed Xander Bogaerts to score the game-winning run on a Mookie Betts sacrificy fly in the top of the inning. He was charged with three runs -- two earned -- on six hits and one walk while striking out four in 6-5 defeat.
Rogers, who threw 81 pitches after 35 on Thursday, told reporters he would have returned for another inning had the Yankees tied the game in the bottom of the frame.
"If we had tied the game right there, I was going to be back," Rogers said, per the Journal News. "I was going to give us the opportunity to win the game. That's why I'm here, to give us that opportunity."
Cashman: Adam Warren the favorite to win final spot in rotation
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Wednesday pitcher Adam Warren is the favorite to win the final spot in the team's rotation, per MLB.com. Cashman indicated Warren has a huge lead in the race over the remaining candidates -- Esmil Rogers, Bryan Mitchell, Chase Whitley and Scott Baker.
"There is a Secretariat in the field," Cashman said, per the New York Post. "Right now, Warren’s got a big lead in this, but we don’t have to make that decision right now. As of right now, if we made the call today, it would be Warren."
Warren is 2-0 with a 2.77 ERA through four spring starts. He has allowed four runs on 13 hits and no walks in 13 innings, while striking out six.
Yankees pitcher Esmil Rogers surrenders five runs Tuesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) Yankees pitcher Esmil Rogers struggled to get batters out Tuesday, allowing five runs on five hits in three innings against the Tigers.
Rogers, who added two walks and two strikeouts in the start, knew he didn't have it, according to MLB.com.
"Not great," Rogers said. "It was one of those bad days when everything didn't work."
Yankees' Esmil Rogers allows three runs in rotation bid Thursday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/19/15) Yankees pitcher Esmil Rogers surrendered three earned runs on five hits and one walk in 3 1/3 innings while striking out three in his team's 7-3 loss to the Phillies Thursday.
"I know I (allowed) a couple of base hits; I got a homer," Rogers said after the outing, per The Journal News. "I just try to pound the zone. That’s one of the keys I got in this spring training. Today I came in a couple of times behind in the count, and I’ve got to pay for that."
Manager Joe Girardi indicated Wednesday that the race for the team's final rotation spot would reach another gear this time through the spring rotation. He spoke about the merits of Rogers Thursday.
"Well, he’s got a good arm," Girardi said. "He’s got four pitches that he can go to, so he’s got a couple of different breaking balls and a changeup, so it allows him to get right handers and left handers out. Larry (Rothschild)’s tried to make subtle changes to come of his mechanics to give him more consistency. It’s there, it just comes down to consistently making pitches. This was a position player who made a change, so sometimes those guys bloom a little later."
