TORONTO — The Yankees predict so as to add right-hander Jonathan Loaisiga to the bullpen Wednesday, Aaron Boone mentioned earlier than the Yankees’ 7-2 win over the Blue Jays on Tuesday evening.
Loaisiga has been out with a proper shoulder pressure since Sept. 5.
Earlier than the damage, Loaisiga had been the Yankees’ best reliever. Earlier than he allowed a run in his most up-to-date outing, Sept. 3, Loaisiga had given up only one run in 15 appearances, protecting a span of 18 ²/₃ innings.
Luis Severino, a current addition to the bullpen after his return from February 2020 Tommy John surgical procedure, tossed one other scoreless inning of reduction, a 1-2-3 eighth.
In three outings, he has mixed to throw 5 shutout innings — and he has left Gerrit Cole impressed.
“I was pleasantly surprised by his feel for his offspeed pitches,’’ Cole said before the game. “He’s been tremendously sharp. It’s been an emotional pick-me-up for us and for Yankee fans to see him back out there.”
Michael King, who was strong once more Tuesday, giving up only a run in 2 ¹/₃ innings, has pitched himself into “an important role” in reduction, based on Boone.
The correct-hander has pitched effectively since getting back from a finger injury- particularly with the bullpen lacking Loaisiga and Zack Britton.
“I’ll gladly fill any position,’’ King mentioned.
Giancarlo Stanton, whose three-run homer in the seventh broke the game open, was the DH, however Boone mentioned that wasn’t due to the unreal turf in Toronto.
“I considered putting [Stanton] out there,’’ Boone said. “Turf was not a factor, especially at this point of the season, when I’m gonna give us the best chance to win.”
Boone and Stanton mentioned they had been completely happy to have the ability to play at Rogers Centre for the primary time since 2019. The Blue Jays performed all their video games final season at their Triple-A ballpark in Buffalo, and earlier this yr performed at their Low-A ballpark in Dunedin, Fla., and in Buffalo.
“It was cool,’’ Stanton said of playing in the open dome. “It was a good atmosphere.”
Gio Urshela continued his current sizzling stretch with a single and a homer. He’s 17-for-47 (.362) with 9 runs, a double, three homers and 6 RBIs in his previous 13 video games.
That adopted an unpleasant eight video games during which the third baseman turned shortstop went 3-for-23 with no extra-base hits or walks — and 10 strikeouts.
