Cashman: Adam Warren the favorite to win final spot in rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) 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' Girardi: Fifth-starter competition 'is on'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2015) Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Wednesday that the competition for the fifth starting spot in the rotation begins in earnest with this trip through the rotation, MLB.com reports.

"The competition is on now, in a sense," Girardi said. "These guys are competing for jobs. Even though they probably felt they already were before, this is when we're really going to start paying attention to it."

Esmil Rogers is scheduled to take the mound Thursday against the Phillies, while Adam Warren is slated to make his case Friday against the Tigers. Girardi added that he expects Bryan Mitchell to get at least one more start but was less commital on Chase Whitley or Scott Baker getting another look in the rotation.


Yankees pitcher Chase Whitley impressive again Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2015) Yankees pitcher Chase Whitley continued his scoreless spring Sunday, throwing two perfect innings against the Phillies. He's thrown seven shutout innings while surrendering just four hits and three walks.

"Really good changeup. That's his pitch," manager Joe Girardi said to MLB.com. "He got some swings and misses on some other pitches, but it's good to see."


Yankees' Chase Whitley trying to work in curveball this spring


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2015) Yankees pitcher Chase Whitley is always looking to find an edge on the mound. This year, Whitley is looking to add a new pitch to his repertoire: a curveball, reports The Journal News.

"The slider came a long way last year," Whitley said. "The changeup has always been there. (The curveball is) just something to get a strike early and, who knows, maybe it will develop into something (more)."

Whitley has thrown five scoreless innings so far this spring, but is still trying to prove himself to the coaching staff.

"I'm trying to prove myself every day," he said. "Just go out and perform. Whatever happens, happens."


Rothschild: Yankees pondering using a sixth starter in April and May


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild said Wednesday the team is considering using a sixth starter at times in April and May to help reduce a potential early strain on their rotation, per MLB.com. The Yankees have a stretch of 30 games in 31 days beginning April 17.

"It's a result of some of the stuff that's gone on over the last few years, not just here, but everywhere," Rothschild said. "We're aware of situations here and early in the season, we need to get these guys through these stretches. Being that possibly early in the spring, some of them aren't going to be able to throw a lot, we're going to need to build them up too and give them the extra days when we can."

CC Sabathia, Masahiro Tanaka, Michael Pineda, Nathan Eovaldi and Chris Capuano are expected to make up the team's five-man rotation. However, Tanaka, Sabathia and Pineda were all injured last season, as the Yankees used 13 starting pitchers.

Bryan MitchellEsmil RogersAdam Warren and Chase Whitley are some of the other pitchers that will be stretched out this spring.

"It'd be nice to go through a season with five starters, but there's a good chance we're not going to," Rothschild said. "There's a good chance every team in baseball won't, so it doesn't hurt to see who might fit in as a sixth starter."


Yankees out four from Triple-A


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) The Yankees recalled four players from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Tuesday, as part of their roster expansion.

Following bullpen struggles, Chase Whitley sent down


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) The Yankees optioned pitcher Chase Whitley to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Thursday, to clear a roster spot for a callup.

Whitley has spent the last month pitching out of the Yankees bullpen, but has struggled in that role. He has allowed 10 runs over his last 7 1/3 innings, raising his season ERA to 5.43 overall.  


Chase Whitley heading back to bullpen


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2014) The addition of veteran Chris Capuano to the rotation for the Yankees has kicked Chase Whitley out of it and sent him to the bullpen.

Whitley is coming off his strongest start, a six-inning shutout performance against Texas on Tuesday. But that came in the wake of several duds, so apparently the die was cast. He is 4-3 with a 4.60 ERA on the year.


Chase Whitley tosses six scoreless innings vs. Rangers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) Yankees pitcher Chase Whitley didn't factor into Tuesday's decision after giving up seven hits in six scoreless innings, striking out six and walking none in his team's 2-1, 14-inning win over the Rangers.

Whitley was removed after giving up a leadoff single in the seventh inning despite having thrown just 75 pitches. However, it was the first time he has completed six innings since June 12. Whitley owns a 4.60 ERA and 46:12 K:BB ratio in 60 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Blue Jays Sunday.


Chase Whitley hit hard in loss to O's


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2014) Yankees starting pitcher Chase Whitley took a step back Sunday night against the Orioles in Baltimore. In a rain-shortened game that last only five innings, Whitley was pulled after 3 2/3 innings. The right-hander allowed three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four, dropping to 4-3 on the season.

Whitley enters the All-Star break with a 5.10 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP over 54 2/3 innings of work. It remains to be seen if he'll keep a spot in the rotation after the break.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) Yankees pitcher Chase Whitley is expected to start in Masahiro Tanaka's place Sunday, assuming he isn't used in relief Saturday, according to MASNSports.com.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

With the win, Whitley moves to 4-2 on the year. 


Shane Greene in, Chase Whitley out of Yankees rotation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Joe Girardi has announced that Yankees right-hander Shane Greene will remain in the rotation after a strong Monday start in Cleveland. Chase Whitley is headed to the bullpen.

Greene yielded two earned runs on four hits in six innings in a defeat of the Indians. He is set to start Saturday in Baltimore.


Chase Whitley rocked in early exit


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2014) Yankees pitcher Chase Whitley lasted just three innings Friday, as he took a no-decision in a 6-5 win over the Twins.

Whitley got plenty of help early on, but couldn't keep the Twins off the board as he was chased early. He was tagged for four runs on eight hits and a walk in three innings of work, including two home runs. He also struck out four batters on 74 pitches before he was pulled.

Whitley's ERA has rocketed up over the past three starts, as he has allowed 17 runs in 10 1/3 innings in that span. Whitley is 3-2 with a 5.14 ERA in 10 starts heading into his next scheduled start, Wednesday in Cleveland.


Chase Whitley surrenders five runs in loss vs. Red Sox


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Yankees pitcher Chase Whitley took the loss Sunday, giving up five earned runs on eight hits and two walks in four-plus innings while striking out one in his team's 8-5 defeat against the Red Sox.

Whitley (3-2) gave up a run on a second-inning single before David Ortiz launched a three-run home run in the third. The starter was removed after walking the leadoff batter in the fifth inning, and that run would come around to score for Whitley's fifth charged run. He's struggled in his last two starts (both losses), giving up 13 earned runs in just 7 1/3 innings. Whitley owns a 4.70 ERA and 29:9 K:BB ratio in 46 innings going into Friday's scheduled matchup with the Twins.


Chase Whitley rocked for eight runs in loss Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) Yankees pitcher Chase Whitley was hit with a loss Monday after giving up eight earned runs on 11 hits and three walks in just 3 1/3 innings while striking out two in his team's 8-3 defeat against the Blue Jays.

Whitley (3-1) won each of his last three starts with good outings before coming apart Monday, when he saw the Blue Jays bat around in a six-run second inning. He was removed with two men on in the third after giving up an RBI single. Since Whitley had been pretty good before Monday's meltdown, he still owns a 4.07 ERA and 28:7 K:BB ratio in 42 innings. He'll try to get back on track Sunday against the Red Sox.


Chase Whitley deserves more credit


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/19/2014) Joe Girardi's comments after Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays probably best explains the Fantasy world's lack of interest in Yankees right-hander Chase Whitley, who is only 38 percent owned:

"We weren't really sure what we were going to get when he came up because we had never seen him as a starter," the manager told The Journal News. "He had always been a reliever from what we had seen, and we'd never seen the distance that he could give you."

The distance he could give them is still in question after he followed up two starts of seven innings or more with a five-inning effort Wednesday, but otherwise, as Girardi put it, "our expectations have changed a lot."

It's time for Fantasy owners to follow the Yankees' lead. Whitley was a non-entity coming into the season because he had pitched almost exclusively out of the bullpen in the minors, but in seven appearances, including six starts, prior to his promotion this year, he compiled a 2.39 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 10.9 strikeouts per nine innings. While the strikeouts have understandably taken a dip with his promotion to the big leagues, the rest of his numbers have translated, including his stellar control and low home run rate.

Though he took a step back innings-wise Wednesday, he did throw a season high 95 pitches, so the Yankees continue to extend him further and further. Particularly in leagues where you can take advantage of his relief pitcher eligibility, you might want to buy into him now before the innings pick up.


Chase Whitley wins third start in a row


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2014) Yankees pitcher Chase Whitley won his third start in a row Wednesday, as the Yankees took down the Blue Jays 7-3.

Whitley fell an inning short of a quality start, but still pitched well enough to get the win. He limited the Blue Jays to two runs on five hits and a walk in five innings of work. He struck out just two batters, but was able to record seven of 15 outs by way of the ground ball in the win.

Whitley is now 3-0 through the first seven starts of his career, with a 2.56 ERA. He will try to remain perfect in his next outing, set for Monday in Toronto. 


Chase Whitley goes seven-plus strong in win over Seattle


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/13/2014) Yankees starter Chase Whitley enjoyed one of his best outing of the season Thursday, lasting a career-best 7 2/3 innings in a win over the Mariners in Seattle. The rookie right-hander surrendered two runs on five hits and no walks while striking out six in a 6-3 victory.

Over his last two starts covering 12 innings, Whitley has allowed three earned runs. He owns a 2.41 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP through six starts (33 2/3 innings). He will look to keep rolling Wednesday at home against Toronto.

Yankees tweak rotation following Monday's postponement


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2014) With Monday's contest between the Yankees and Royals postponed because of inclement weather, manager Joe Girardi will give his starting rotation an extra day of rest, the Star-Ledger reports.

Vidal Nuno, who was scheduled to pitch Monday, will take the mound for the opener in Seattle Tuesday. Masahiro Tanaka and Chase Whitley will round out the series in Seattle. David Phelps will open a weekend set in Oakland, followed by Hiroki Kuroda on Saturday and Nuno on Sunday.

Chase Whitley twirls a gem for win No. 1


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) Yankees starter Chase Whitley twirled a gem against the Royals in Kansas City on Friday, picking up his first win of the season.

Whitley surrendered a run-scoring single to Salvador Perez in the second and a run-scoring double to Lorenzo Cain in the fifth for his only damage of the night. He yielded two runs on five hits and no walks while striking out three in seven innings of a 4-2 victory.

The victory brings Whitley to 1-0 on the year. He owns a 2.42 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP in five starts. He will make his next start Wednesday at Seattle.

Chase Whitley looks good in no-decision


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2014) Yankees starter Chase Whitley allowed one run and five hits over five innings in Sunday's 7-2 loss to the Twins. Whitley (0-0, 2.37 ERA) received another no-decision despite striking out six and walking none.

Whitley, who's walked three batters in four starts, is scheduled to face the Royals on Friday.


Chase Whitley surrenders three runs in no-decision Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2014) Yankees pitcher Chase Whitley was not a factor in the decision Monday after giving up three earned runs on eight hits in five innings while striking out two and walking none in his team's 6-4, 12-inning win over the Cardinals.

Whitley managed to finish the fifth inning for the first time after leaving during the fifth in each of his first two starts, but he still didn't record his first win in Monday's game. He owns a 2.57 ERA and 9:3 K:BB ratio in 14 innings. Whitley is slated to match up with the Twins Sunday.


Chase Whitley surrenders one run in no-decision Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Yankees pitcher Chase Whitley didn't factor into the decision Wednesday after giving up one earned run on six hits and one walk in 4 1/3 innings while striking out three in his team's 4-2 win over the Cubs.

Whitley has been pulled before 75 pitches in both his starts with the Yankees, though he has only surrendered one run in nine innings between the two outings. He was on the hook for the loss Wednesday, but the Yankees scored two runs on a groundout and error to tie the game in the ninth inning. Whitley is slated to face the Cardinals Monday.


Chase Whitley looks sharp in MLB debut


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) Yankees pitcher Chase Whitley looked sharp in his major-league debut Thursday against the Mets, but got the hook with runners on second and third and two outs in the fifth inning. He permitted two hits and two walks while striking out four in 4 2/3 innings of a 1-0 victory.

Whitley made seven appearances (six starts) with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, going 3-2 with a 2.39 ERA and 32:7 K:BB ratio in 26 1/3 innings. Following a no-decision, Whitley will make his second career start Wednesday against the Cubs in Chicago.
