Rangers rookie Ariel Jurado hammered in first career start at Yankee Stadium

Rangers rookie Ariel Jurado hammered in first career start at Yankee Stadium

NEW YORK - The early starts in a major leaguer's career are full of lessons.Thursday's for Ariel Jurado: "Don't leave pitches up," he said through an interpreter.When he does, it ain't pretty.Jurado allowed four home runs - two on sinkers and two on secondary pitches - in five innings of a 7-3 pounding at the bats of the New York Yankees. It included a ball that left Giancarlo Stanton's bat at 121.7 mph, the hardest hit ball of the data crazy Statcast Era.Of course, everything against the Yankees, must be viewed through a different lens. They do lead the majors in homers. They do play in a...

Yankees 7, Rangers 3: Back on a record home run pace

Make it four consecutive wins for the New York Baseball Yankees. First four-game winning streak since mid-June.

The Yankees can hit home runs […] The post Yankees 7, Rangers 3: Back on a record home run pace appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yankees hold a home-run derby in victory over the Rangers

Yankees hold a home-run derby in victory over the Rangers

Too many homers? No such thing! During last month’s All-Star Game festivities, no Yankees participated in the Home Run Derby. It’s now clear that they sidestepped the official function to host their own version against the Rangers. The Bombers hit five home runs en route to their 7-3 victory. J.A. Happ started Thursday night’s game for the Yankees, and he turned in another strong performance. In fact, I would argue he pitched better than his line suggests. Happ didn’t allow a hit until Jurickson Profar took him deep for a two-out solo home run in the fourth inning. Prior to that,...

51-66 - Jurado’s sinker was sunk as Rangers sank against Yankees 7-3

51-66 - Jurado’s sinker was sunk as Rangers sank against Yankees 7-3

Ariel Jurado tied the record for most home runs allowed by a Rangers rookie pitcher in opener against Yankees Ariel Jurado was probably due one of these. Sure, he had most recently won a game against the Baltimore Orioles and before that, the Houston Astros at Minute Maid, but those Orioles are barely Major Leaguers and those Astros were missing what makes them the Astros — both Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa were out — so tonight was perhaps the first time you could say that Jurado was perhaps punching above his weight class. It went rudely. In five innings, Jurado allowed six runs on...

NYY vs. TEX: J.A. Happ vs. Ariel Jurado

J.A. Happ returns as the Bombers look for their fourth straight win. It’s still too early to say the cavalry is coming, but reinforcements are arriving for the Yankees. Tonight, J.A. Happ returns from the 10-day disabled list to make his second start in pinstripes. The 35-year-old looked good in his debut appearance, and the Yankees could use all the help they can get in the rotation. Here’s hoping the long layoff won’t leave him rusty. As for the Rangers, Ariel Jurado gets the start. The 22-year-old has only made three big league starts in his career, pitching to a 4.02 ERA (4.04...

New York Yankees vs. Texas Rangers: Series preview

Maybe the Yankees can beat the Rangers this time! The last time the Yankees squared off against the Rangers, things didn’t go well for New York. The Bombers dropped two out of the three games in Arlington. Jeff Bannister’s squad sold off several pieces at the trade deadline, including Cole Hamels and Jake Diekman. Maybe the Yankees will have better luck against them now. Game One: J.A. Happ vs. Ariel Jurado Fresh off the disabled list, Happ will make his second start for the Yankees. The veteran southpaw had a fine debut in pinstripes, holding the Royals to one run over six innings....

Yankees reportedly option Chance Adams to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre

Yankees reportedly option Chance Adams to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre

The Yankees are making room for J.A. Happ. Following last night’s victory over the White Sox, the Yankees reportedly optioned starting pitcher Chance Adams to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. This move makes room for J.A. Happ, who is set to be activated from the disabled list ahead of tonight’s game against the Texas Rangers. The Yankees called Adams up last weekend as an emergency spot starter. Injuries to Happ, a Sonny Gray demotion, and the use of Lance Lynn and Luis Cessa in long relief forced the Bombers to turn to the former top prospect. For his part, Adams pitched well against...
