Offense bails out bullpen as Yankees beat Orioles 10-8

The Yankees’ offense pounded Orioles’ pitching for ten runs on Friday, and the excess of runs was the key to the win as David Robertson, Jonathan Loaisiga, and A.J. Cole combined to allow six runs in relief. Despite the near collapse, the Yankees sealed the deal in the ninth as Betances picked up his fourth save of the season in the 10-8 victory.

Yankees re-sign Adam Lind to minors deal

With the rash of injuries occurring in the Yankees’ system and the up and coming suspension of Tyler Austin on the horizon, the Yankees made a move this afternoon to improve their depth by re-signing veteran 1B/OF Adam Lind to a minor league deal.

Lind was signed to a minors deal with an invite to spring training in March, but was released 12 days later, when his chances of making the opening day roster became slim. He hit 3-for-15 with no XBH’s in limited action in Yankees’ camp before his release and was unable to latch on permanently with another club.

Lind will provide depth at first base and in the outfield for the Bombers. According to Chris Cotillo of the MLB Daily Dish, Lind will be sent to extended spring training. The 34-year-old Lind was very vocal this offseason about how unusual it was for a player like him who hit .303 in 2017 to not receive any sort of interest on the market.
