The Yankees had several options to clear space for the expected return of Aaron Judge on Friday evenings, but in the end they did what they expected most – as an option for Thursday night's winning pitcher Nestor Cortes Jr. Triple-A Scranton / Wilkes-Barre after their 10: 6 victory over the Astros.
Cortes threw in three innings to facilitate opener Chad Greene, scoring three goals and two runs to claim the win. His downgrade leaves the Yankees with a 12-headed pitching staff, which is risky considering how much they rely on their bullpen and a run scored victory on Thursday. From June 5 to 19, Maybin hit with four homers, five RBIs, a base percentage of .421 and an OPS of .1
Gary Sanchez was in the lead behind the plate for a .405 (15-for-37). The fourth game in a row was a track that included him from Tuesday night and Wednesday afternoon.
"I feel that he is good. I feel like we've been looking after him for a night game when it comes to most tag games. & # 39; & # 39; Boone said his catcher, who had nine RBIs in his last four games, hit .137 (5 against 14) a .126 OPS. "I will certainly give him Saturday or Sunday off. Physically, I feel very fit and in a good place.
Sanchez rewarded Judge's decision Thursday night with a solo homer and a 2-on-5 win.
Jordan Montgomery underwent an MRI scan Thursday, which showed inflammation in his left shoulder and banned him from throwing for 14 days. Montgomery is at the IL while he rehabilitated himself from the Tommy John operation last year.
"Pretty good news, but no litter for two weeks," Boone said about the left-hander who had undergone surgery on June 7. On May 25 in Kansas City, infielder DJ LeMahieu must try in one of the three remaining games against the Astros not to go to the start.
"DJ is likely to have one of those free days against Houston," Boone said of LeMahieu, who hit .318 (57-for-179) with .833 OPS during the course.
LeMahieu launched in third place for the 19th time Thursday, and went 1-for-4 with a Two-Un homer.
It was the third time in the last four games that LeMahieu took third place.
LeMahieu opened the day with a .462 (30: 65) and runner-up position. These were the most hits in the majors and the second highest average. The tigers Miguel Cabrera scored .464 with runners in the scoring position.
