Happ stifles former team, offense explodes again, in 10-2 win

On a cool, cloudy afternoon in The Bronx, the Yanks dominated the Blue Jays, 10-2, to close out a three-game sweep of their divisional foe. After a rough start to the week, the Yankees got back on track this weekend with the sweep of Toronto. In doing so, they closed out their home stand with a 4-3 record.

Yankees purchase the contract of LHP Ryan Bollinger, option Gallegos


In a somewhat surprising move, the Yankees have purchased the contract of LHP Ryan Bollinger from Double-A to serve as an extra arm in the bullpen after AJ Cole and Gallegos both pitched a lot yesterday following German’s subpar outing.

Bollinger, 27, was drafted in the 47th round in the 2009 draft by the Phillies and has been pitching in Independent ball, Australia, and Germany since 2014. In his first and only season in the Yankees organization the 6’5”, 230-pound southpaw is 3-1 in five starts between Trenton and Scranton and posted a 1.86 ERA. He has accumulated a 0.86 WHIP, 7.0 K/9, and 2.2 BB/9.

This will be his first stint in the majors and is a feel-good story for the Yankees. He won’t likely stick with the big-league team for long with Tommy Kahnle on the mend.
