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.

"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.

Yankees option Bryan Mitchell, Ramon Flores


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) The Yankees optioned pitcher Bryan Mitchell and outfielder Ramon Flores to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Sunday while reassigning eight players to minor-league camp.

Mitchell allowed six earned runs in 7 1/3 innings this spring. Flores hit .206/.270/.412 with two home runs in 34 spring at-bats.

In addition to the options, the Yankees reassigned catchers Francisco Arcia and Kyle Higashioka, infielders Cole Figueroa and Jonathan Galvez, outfielder Slade Heathcott and pitchers Kyle Davies, Jacob Lindgren and Nick Rumbelow to minor-league camp.


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' Bryan Mitchell walks three in 3 1/3 innings Monday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Yankees pitcher Bryan Mitchell, who is vying for the last spot in the team's rotation, didn't exactly make a strong impression during Monday's spring game against the Nationals. Mitchell lasted just 3 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on four hits and three walks, while striking out two.

"This is a young man with good stuff," manager Joe Girardi said, per ESPN. "It's learning how to pound the strike zone with that good stuff and learning how to put guys away that is going to be a factor for him. I think this kid's got a pretty high ceiling, I do. There’s stuff there."

Mitchell, who was making his second start and third spring appearance, has allowed six runs in his last two outings (5 1/3 innings). Mitchell has a 7.36 ERA.

"It kinda coulda been better, coulda been worse," Mitchell said. "I feel like I've thrown the ball well, but the results haven’t shown it, but I feel it’s a matter of time before things start clicking."


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.


Bryan Mitchell would be disappointed if he doesn't make Yanks roster


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Yankees pitcher Bryan Mitchell has just three major-league appearances on his resume, but the 23-year-old right-hander said he would be disappointed if he did not make the opening day roster, per NJ.com.

"I'm here because I want to make the team," he said. "So, if that happens, I'll just go back down (to the minors) and pitch my butt off and come back."

Barring injury, the Yankees rotation seems pretty set, so Mitchell could be vying for a role as a long reliever/sixth starter this spring.

"I try not to read too much into that," he said. "But at the same time I know there is going to be spots up for grabs, whether it be reliever or sixth starter or long man. Just trying to win a job wherever I can."


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."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

However, the discussions ended when the Mariners tried to work a deal around starting pitcher prospect Bryan Mitchell. The Yankees chose to pass on trading Mitchell because he could be a candidate to join the rotation later this year or next season.

Yankees begin trimming roster


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com

Mitchell making some waves


(2/5/2013) Yankees prospect Bryan Mitchell posted a 4.58 ERA in 27 appearances (26 starts) at Class A Charleston last season and finished with a 9-11 record. New York senior vice president of baseball operations Mark Newman told MLB.com Tuesday that his stats were misleading, however. "The numbers won't knock you out, but young pitchers can change," said Newman. "His fastball, he can pitch 94-96 [mph], and not just touch it, but pitch there. A really tight, big down curveball. The changeup and command are coming. Not many have written about him yet, and there's risk, because he's young. He hasn't performed extraordinarily well yet, but man does he have good stuff."
