Bullpen Day Thrives, Yanks top Rays 4-1

Entering the last week of the regular season the Yankees opened a four-game set Monday night in the always dreaded trip to face the Tampa Bay Rays. The Yankees came into tonight sitting one and a half games (two in the loss column) above the Oakland A’s for home field advantage in the AL Wild Card game. Aaron Boone decided to go with a “bullpen day” tonight instead of giving the ball to a typical starter.

Adam Warren placed on 10-day DL, Holder recalled

This morning the Yankees recalled right handed pitcher Jonathan Holder from AAA Scranton. The corresponding move was veteran righty Adam Warren being sent to the 10-day disabled list with a right back strain. Holder made the Yankees opening day roster but struggled mightily in the Bronx posting a whopping 20.25 ERA in three games while posting a record of 0-1. Holder was sent down after his poor performance against Baltimore on April 6th. The 24-year-old righty will look to get things back on track in this weekend’s final two games against Toronto. Holder will be active for today’s 1:05 game.

Warren who pitched last night and gave up a home run to former Yankee legend Yangervis Solarte has been his usual solid dependable self this season. In eight appearances he has posted a 3.24 ERA. Warren solidified last nights’ game from getting too far out of hand after another sub-par performance by starter Sonny Gray. He pitched 2.2 innings while surrendering only the solo homerun to Solarte. The team hopes that Warren’s stay on the DL will be just for the minimum 10 days.
