by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2015) Yankees pitcher Chase Whitley was stuck with a loss Saturday, allowing five earned runs on six hits and two walks in 5 2/3 innings while striking out five in his team's 6-2 defeat against the Orioles.

Whitley (1-1) was slammed for three home runs in the third and fourth innings, and the Yankees were unable to climb out of the hole. He had allowed just one earned run and no homers in his previous two starts combined.

"I was trying to be aggressive, trying to pound the zone," Whitley said to MLB.com. "They're an aggressive team. The Blue Jays are, too. I've got to pitch to that, and it was working early."

Whitley owns a 3.06 ERA and 16:3 K:BB ratio in 17 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to square off with the Rays Thursday.

"He just made some mistakes," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "[The Orioles] are a club that hits the ball out of the park. He was just a little off. Pitchers sometimes aren't going to be perfect."


Yankees SP Chase Whitley gets no-decision despite seven scoreless IP


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/4/2015) Yankees starting pitcher Chase Whitley tossed seven scoreless innings Monday, limiting the Blue Jays to just six hits, one for extra bases, and struck out six in a no-decision.

The start was Whitley's second of the year as he replaced the injured Masahiro Tanaka (forearm) in the rotation.

Whitley was cruising after seven innings, throwing a total of 90 pitches.

"It was the fourth time through [the order]," manager Joe Girardi said about pulling his starter. "He is a guy who, yeah, he has started before, but he is not a guy who is used to going 95, 100 pitches. That's not who he is. I just thought it was time for a change."

In his two starts this season, Whitely has allowed one run and fanned 11 in 12 innings (0.75 ERA).

"He's matured, his stuff has gotten better and his location has continued to improve as a starter," Girardi said, per MLB.com.

Whitley's next start is set for Saturday against the Orioles.

Yankees could go with six-man rotation for a while


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/17/2015) 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.

"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.

"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.

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' Chase Whitley trying to work in curveball this spring


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

"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."
