Yankees RP Dellin Betances becomes team's closer


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/10/2015) With Andrew Miller heading to the disabled list, Dellin Betances will assume the role as the Yankees closer for at least the near future. Betances, who was unavailable to pitch on Wednesday due to workload, has been dominant this season so far.

"I feel good right now," Betances said, per NJ.com. "I just have to take the same mentality that I've done in the eighth just try to take it to the ninth. Same for the other guys. I feel good. I'll be ready."

The big right-hander has a microscopic 0.28 ERA over 32 1/3 innings pitched this year. He also owns a 54:14 K:BB ratio. He has three saves in his career, including two this season.


Dellin Betances earns shaky second save for Yankees


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2015) Dellin Betances struggled but managed to earn a save in the Yankees ' win Friday over the Angels. 

Betances entered in the ninth inning, with the bases loaded and no outs, protecting an 8-3 lead. 

He promptly gave up a single and two walks. All three of his inherited runners scored, and Betances gave up a run of his own, his first allowed this season, before retiring the side. 

"When we had the bases loaded and Kirk was up, I was like ‘Man, this is right at our fingertips,’" Angels infielder Johnny Giavotella said. “But then Betances closed the door and put the game away. He’s a stud pitcher out there. He has really good stuff. It wasn’t any of our faults."

Betances earned his second save, and first since May 2. 


Yankees legend Mo Rivera has a hand in Dellin Betances' torrid start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) With another scoreless outing Tuesday against the Mariners, Yankees reliever Dellin Betances has opened the season with 26 straight scoreless appearances, which is a team record.

Betances has been locked in as of late, as he has struck out 14 of the last 20 batters he faced. He now has 49 strikeouts in 29 1/3 innings.

Betances had some struggles in spring training and at the beginning of the season, when he walked six batters in his first three appearances. However, with a little help from Yankees legend Mariano Rivera, Betances has ironed out his issues.

"Towards the beginning of the season when I was struggling early on, Mo told me a couple of pointers that really helped," Betances told the New York Post. "He told me he felt like my front shoulder was flying open and he offered some tips. I dropped the shoulder a little bit to stay within a straight line and have a good direction towards home, and I think that has helped me be more successful and more consistent."


Yankees RP Dellin Betances strikes out the side in Tuesday's win


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/27/2015) Yankees reliever Dellin Betances pitched another perfect inning in Tuesday's victory over the Royals. He struck out the side in the eighth inning, continuing his dominant season thus far.

The hard-throwing righty hasn't allowed an earned run this season. And perhaps even more impressive is the fact he hasn't given up a hit in his last 8 2/3 innings, spanning seven appearances. 

"We get paid to get outs," Betances said, per the New York Post. "I try to do the best job I can out there. I always try to improve on whatever I need to do. I feel good, I’ve felt good for a long time."

And he's looked good too. He has a terrific 13.7 K/9 ratio after Tuesday's performance.

"His confidence just seems to be growing," Tuesday's starter and winner Adam Warren said. "He’s always had that stuff, but he knows how to harness it now. It’s getting to the point of ridiculousness."


Yankees' Betances, Miller likely unavailable Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2015) Yankees manager Joe Girardi indicated that pitchers Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller would likely be unavailable for Saturday's game against the Orioles, LoHud.com reports.

Both pitchers saw action Thursday on Friday, which for relievers typically means an off-day to prevent working on a third straight day. The team could turn toward Chris Martin in a save situation, as he was able to convert a save opportunity in late April.


Yankees' Dellin Betances unlikely to pitch Tuesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2015) Yankees reliever Dellin Betances, who has pitched three out of the last four games, will not be available out of the bullpen Tuesday night against the Blue Jays, per the Journal News. Betances has not permitted an earned run through 15 1/3 innings of relief this season.

Yankees bullpen shows weakness in loss to Blue Jays Monday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/5/2015) The Yankees bullpen has been outstanding all season but showed some weakness Monday as relievers Chris Martin and Dellin Betances allowed three runs on four hits in the eighth inning against the Blue Jays in an eventual loss, reports NJ.com. 

"It's a lot of innings they've had to log," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said after the loss. "We've had a couple long stretches that are not helping."


Setup-man Dellin Betances earns first save of season for Yankees


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/2/2015) Yankees reliever Dellin Betances faced and struck out the final four Red Sox batters Saturday to earn his first save of the season.

Betances, the Yankees' setup man, filled in for usual closer Andrew Miller, who's pitched in four of the Yankees' last six games.

"I feel good, I feel comfortable," Betances said. "I feel like I'm going out there with a game plan and trying to make pitches."

"He's elite," Yankees catcher Brian McCann said. "He's the standard ... he's got two unbelievable pitches. No one wants to face him."


Yankees' Dellin Betances (toe) not expected to miss time


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2015) Yankees manager Joe Girardi indicated Wednesday that pitcher Dellin Betances is dealing with a blister on his big toe, the New York Daily News reports.

"It's not an issue," Girardi said, adding that Betances isn't expected to miss any time with the injury.

Betances pitched a 1-2-3 eighth inning Wednesday, striking out two in his team's 3-2, 13-inning loss to the Rays. He's yet to allow an earned run this season while racking up 19 strikeouts and seven walks in 12 1/3 innings. The righty has walked just one batter in his last eight appearances.


Joe Girardi not yet conceding Yankees' closer role to Andrew Miller


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/27/2015) Despite being the only Yankee with a save this season (seven for seven), manager Joe Girardi has not yet named Andrew Miller as the team's closer, according to NJ.com.

"I don't know if I need to officially name it yet," Girardi said. "I'll take a few more days I guess."

It was unclear coming into spring training if the closer role would go to Miller, a 2015 free-agent signee, or Dellin Betances, who's coming off a sensational rookie season.

To this point in 2015, Betances has been working the seventh or eighth inning while Miller has gotten the nod for the ninth.

Neither pitcher has given up an earned run yet this season.

"We were kind of excited about the prospect of those two," Girardi said. "Being able to give us more than six outs ... [we thought] it could be a really good combination and so far it's played out that way."


Yankees' Dellin Betances earns third win Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Yankees pitcher Dellin Betances struck out two batters in 1 1/3 perfect innings to earn the win in his team's 2-1 victory over the Tigers Thursday.

Betances (3-0) struggled to open up the season, issuing multiple walks in each of his first three outings. He's since started to round into the form that made him an All-Star last season, manager Joe Girardi incidated after the game, NJ.com reports.

"I mean, he's really starting to," Girardi said. "And I even think it's going to get better. But it was really good today."

Betances hit 97 mph on the radar gun to strike out Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler and end the eighth inning. Despite his early control issues, he has yet to allow an earned run in 9 1/3 innings while racking up 12 strikeouts.

"I feel good. I mean, the confidence is there," Betances said. "I'm making pitches when I need to and I"m just following (catcher Brian) McCann's game plan and trying to help the team win. I feel better the more I pitch and I'm just getting into a good rhythm."


Andrew Miller saves fourth game of year for Yankees


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Yankees closer Andrew Miller saved his fourth game of the year in Sunday's win. 

Miller pitched a scoreless ninth, allowing one hit and striking out three. He has not allowed a run this season and has given up two hits in six innings pitched. 

"It's never easy. It's not how I wanted to start, but you have to look at the scoreboard in those situations," Miller said to MLB.com. "I know that there's nobody behind me, so I'm not trying to keep it to one run or no runs; I'm trying to win the game. Right there, it's about getting three outs before they get two runs. Fortunately I was able to do that. It wasn't pretty, but I got there."

Manager Joe Girardi continues to say both Miller and reliever Dellin Betances will be used interchangeably.

"We're seeing a ton of right-handed hitters and we're going to see a bunch again. It's kind of worked out that way," Girardi said. "I've asked them to get some multiple innings, some multiple outs for us. Andrew has done a good job in the ninth, so I've just kind of stuck with it right now. I'm not saying that's been named to anyone, but it's just kind of the way it has worked out with the lineup we have."


Yankees reliever Dellin Betances off to strong start in 2015


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/18/2015) After a shaky spring training, Yankees reliever Dellin Betances has begun 2015 strongly as the 6-8 righty notched the win for the Yankees on Friday in Tampa.

In five appearances this season, Betances is 2-0 with six strike outs and has not allowed an earned run in 5 1/3 innings.

Yankees' Dellin Betances strikes out two in scoreless inning


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Yankees pitcher Dellin Betances allowed one hit and struck out two in a scoreless inning in Wednesday's 7-5 loss to the Orioles. Manager Joe Girardi said he thought Betances looked sharper after the game, per The Journal News.

"I thought he had better break on his curveball," Girardi said. "I thought it had a better shape tonight than it’s had, so that was encouraging too."

Betances walked a pair of batters in each of his first three appearances but was able to get through Wednesday's outing without handing out a free pass. He's given up just one unearned run in 4 1/3 innings while posting a 5:6 K:BB ratio.


Still no closer decision between Yankees' Andrew Miller and Dellin Betances


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Yankees reliever Dellin Betances has struggled so far this season, but he still has a chance to fill in as the team's closer. 

With Andrew Miller going five outs for a save on Monday, thanks in part to Betances' rough night in set-up, manager Joe Girardi said he may need to give Miller a night off. That would mean Betances would get the call to close, per the Journal News

"The big thing is that he understands it’s just a little mechanical thing that he has to fix and he has to get back on track," Girardi said of Betances' six walks in three and a third innings this season. "He’s been able, for the most part, to get through without giving up a lot of damage which is a good thing. We’ve got to get him back on track and we’ll get him there."

Assuming he does, there's still a chance he ends up in the full-time closer role, despite losing the job to Miller coming out of spring. 

"We still haven't made a decision one way or the other ... I’m not sure that’s what we’re going to do all year," Girardi said. "We’ll continue to re-evaluate, but at the beginning of the year we thought that was the best way to handle it."


Yankees' Dellin Betances works out of jam Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Yankees pitcher Dellin Betances was able to work out of a bases-loaded jam Monday, striking out Orioles first baseman Chris Davis to preserve a one-run lead in his team's 6-5 win.

"I threw some good ones to Davis," Betances said after the game, per MLB.com. "Those are the way I need to throw it to all of them. I thought those breaking balls I threw to him were really good."

Betances, who has been dealing with control issues, entered the game with two men on base and his team up two runs in the seventh inning. He surrendered a single to load the bases, and a groundout then brought home the first run of the inning, which was charged to the previous pitcher. Betances reloaded the bases with a walk but then rung up Davis to escape the inning with the lead.

Betances went on to pitch into the eighth inning, giving up another hit and another walk before coming out of the game with one out. He has yet to allow a run in 3 1/3 innings but has walked six batters while striking out three.


Mechanical issues cost Yankees' Betances chance to win closer's job


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Yankees sources said reliever Dellin Betances' velocity wasn't down from last spring to this spring, although it was actually slightly down, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. 

However, one Yankees personnel admitted Betances is having issues with his pitching mechanics, which is why he did not win the closer's job outright this spring. He is expected to share save opportunities with Andrew Miller at the outset of the season.


Yankees' Dellin Betances earns win Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Yankees pitcher Dellin Betances surrendered an unearned run on one hit and two walks while working the eighth inning Wednesday but earned the win in his team's 4-3 victory over the Blue Jays.

Betances opened the inning by forcing a groundout but then surrendered a walk and a single to put runners on the corners. After a throwing error brought a run home, Betances issued another walk before recording two more groundouts to escape the inning. The Yankees were able to score three runs in the bottom of the eighth to turn a two-run deficit into a one-run lead, which Andrew Miller protected in the ninth.

Though the results weren't great, Betances was happy that the velocity on his fastball was back Wednesday, NJ.com reports.

"I knew my strength in my arm would come," he said Wednesday. "I knew I would be where I'm at right now. ... Now it's just a matter of being more consistent with my delivery."

Betances and Miller are likely to share the closing role moving forward, but Betances may have to pitch better than he did Wednesday if he wants to keep at least a share of the ninth inning this season.


Yankees' Girardi debating using Betances and Miller in closer's role


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2015) Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Friday the team will discuss their closer situation Saturday, per The Wall Street Journal. Although, Girardi hinted Friday at leaning toward using Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller in the closer's role.

Girardi added there can be advantages to not naming a closer, particularly to allow flexibility to use Miller and Betances against left-handed and right-handed batters when needed.

“My thought has been more like with a power lefty who strikes out a lot of guys and a power righty, the lineups just might match up where one day he’s the eighth-inning guy and then one day he’s the ninth-inning guy a little bit better,” Giradri said, per The Journal News. “… I think you start managing who you’re going to use (in the ninth) in about the sixth inning, because you try to prepare them.”

Betances entered the spring as the favorite for the closer's role, but he has struggled this spring amid reports of diminished velocity. He has a 6.14 ERA and nearly as many walks (five) as strikeouts (six) in eight appearances.

Miller is 1-0 with a 2.57 ERA and eight strikeouts in eight relief outings.

“I’ve talked to both (Miller and Betances)” Girardi said. “They’re concerned about winning more than (roles), in the sense of I’m this guy, I’m this guy. That’s the sense I’ve got from them. Now, could it iron itself out and you start to do it one way? Yes.

"I’ll continue to talk about it with my coaches and (pitching coach) Larry (Rothschild) and his feelings about it as they get a feel, and Gary Tuck who’s in the bullpen, what do you think the importance of it is that we actually set a role? But as of right now, we haven’t felt that we have to.”
