Bombers' bullpen is burning

ARLINGTON, Texas -- You can smell it now, and it doesn't smell like victory. It smells like the odor of arms burning out from overuse. That is really the only way to explain what went on with the Yankees bullpen Tuesday night, when normally reliable, and even dominant relievers like Adam Warren, Dellin Betances and David Robertson suddenly all become ineffective on the same night, in the same game, and in much the same way. All three of them had trouble with mechanics, command, and control.

Betances' miscue in eighth proves costly for the Yankees

As soon as Dellin Betances released the throw intended for first baseman Brian McCann, he said he "knew it wasn't even going to be close."

Yankees add Capuano to big league roster

Seems like every spring training we’re asking whether the Yankees are going to carry one or two left-handed reliever. Well, right now they have four. The Yankees have added Chris Capuano to the big league roster and designated Chris Leroux for assignment. That gives the Yankees the following bullpen:* Right handers: Dave Robertson, Dellin Betances, […] The post Yankees add Capuano to big league roster appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Dellin Betances gives up tying homer, but he knows how to handle it now

In the past, when Dellin Betances was a struggling starter in the minor leagues, he might have had a harder time handling the situation after surrendering a home run and blowing a lead late in a game.

Joe: Betances has been like Mo in '96

NEW YORK -- It didn't take long to replace Mariano Rivera, did it? Well, not exactly, but when asked whom Dellin Betances' performance this year reminds him of, Joe Girardi brought up Saint Mo and his first full season. Dellin Betances#68 RPNew York Yankees2014 STATS GM41 W4 L0 BB16 K87 ERA1.42"Mo was that way in '96," Girardi said. "That was the kind of season Mo burst onto the scene with. He became a pretty good closer." Let's see the tale of the tape: In 41 games, Betances has pitched 57 innings, striking out 87 with a 1.

All-Star Insider: Yankees' Dellin Betances, Mets' Daniel Murphy represent NY in All-Star Game

All-Star Insider: Yankees' Dellin Betances, Mets' Daniel Murphy represent NY in All-Star Game

Jeter wasn’t the only local player at the All-Star Game. Dellin Betances was one of only two AL pitchers not to appear in the game, as manager John Farrell held the Yankees reliever and Toronto starter Mark Buehrle as his potential extra-inning arms.

Betances doesn't pitch in All-Star Game

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell used 11 pitchers in the All-Star game, but not Dellin Betances. Betances was one of four pitchers not used by Farrell. Boston's Koji Uehara was the only other reliever who didn't make it to the mound. Considering Betances has already had 40 appearances this season, the Yankees probably won't be too upset he didn't pitch.

Betances a very worthy All-Star

Mark LoMoglio/Icon SMIStaring down Dellin Betances from the batters box is not easy.One of the new stats that we sometimes like to use to evaluate a pitcher’s performance is something called Win Probability Added. This is a number that judges a pitcher by the importance of the situations in which he is pitching. A pitcher earns points for getting outs in important spots and loses points for allowing baserunners and runs. How many points he earns or loses is dependent on the game situation.

Kelley: “Back to where I was before I got hurt”

Aside from those three straight walks from David Huff, last night was a pretty good snapshot of how effective this Yankees bullpen has been and could continue to be. • Matt Thornton faced an all-star lefty and got him out. • Dellin Betances and Adam Warren were the go-to relievers before the game went into […] The post Kelley: “Back to where I was before I got hurt” appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

After his first save, remembering Dellin’s his first impression

When Dellin Betances game into the eighth inning of a two-run game last night, nothing seemed out of the ordinary. Perfectly reasonable time for Joe Girardi to use his best setup man, and it wasn’t until he finished off that eighth inning that it occurred to me that Dave Robertson had pitched three of four […]The post After his first save, remembering Dellin’s his first impression appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.
