Series Preview: NYY @ SEA ~ 5/2711-5/29/11

Friday ~ 5/27/11 ~ 10:10 PM EST

A.J. Burnett (5-3, 4.02) vs. Michael Pineda (6-2, 2.16)

Burnett settled down Saturday after a 29-pitch, two-run first inning against the Mets to come out with the win, his third quality start in his last four outings. He is 2-2 with a 3.83 ERA in six career starts against the Mariners.

The big 22-year-old ranks first among AL rookies in wins (6), strikeouts (61) and opponents avg. (.194). He’s riding a 14-inning scoreless streak, during which he’s allowed five hits and one walk with 16 strikeouts.

Saturday ~ 5/28/11 ~ 10:10 PM EST

Ivan Nova (4-3, 4.29) vs. Felix Hernandez (5-4, 3.01)

Nova was unfazed by the stage of the Subway Series, giving up just three runs in 6 2/3 innings Sunday against the Mets. Late run support gave him a no-decision. He has never faced Seattle.

Hernandez tied his career-high with 13 strikeouts in an eight-inning gem against the Padres Sunday, allowing six hits in a 6-1 win. He’s 5-3 with a 2.73 ERA in eight career starts against the Yankees.

Sunday ~ 5/29/11 ~ 4:10 PM EST

C.C. Sabathia (5-3, 3.17) vs. TBA

Sabathia pitched his first complete game of the year on Tuesday, giving up four runs in a win against the Blue Jays. He yielded eight hits, but pounded the strike zone, issuing one walk and using 103 pitches (77 strikes) to finish the game.

MLBTR Notes on Soriano, Colon, Draft Picks, Texeira

From MLBTR:

  • A third MRI on Rafael Soriano‘s elbow has prompted the Yankees to send the pricey reliever to see Dr. James Andrews, report Mark Feinsand and Sean Brennan of the New York Daily News.  The writers note that this marks Soriano’s sixth elbow-related DL stint; he’s a survivor of Tommy John surgery and ulnar nerve transposition surgery.  I’m not sure what surgeries are left, but the decision by Hal and Hank Steinbrenner and Randy Levine to overrule GM Brian Cashman on this signing is looking bad.  If the team’s bullpen depth is compromised due to the Soriano injury, Cashman might be forced to throw more money and/or prospects at the situation.
  • A baseball official reviewed video of the procedures done on Bartolo Colon‘s elbow and shoulder, physician Leonel Liriano told Marc Carig of the Newark Star-Ledger“I feel that they know that everything is good,” remarked Liriano.  MLB has been concerned that Colon’s stem cell therapy could have involved the use of HGH.
  • Our 2012 contract issues entry for the Yankees was published a week ago, check it out.  Many key players have unresolved contract situations.
  • Our post on each team’s draft picks reveals that the Yankees are one of 14 teams with two picks within the first 90.  The Yankees will sit out until pick #51 overall, the longest wait for any team aside from the Tigers.  The draft is less than two weeks away.

The Yankees have claimed Kanekoa Texeira off waivers from the Kansas City Royals. MLBTR on the signing:

Texeira joined the Yankees organization in the 2008 Nick Swisher trade, but he has never donned pinstripes at the Major League level. The Mariners selected him in the 2009 Rule 5 draft and kept him on their roster for two months before exposing him to waivers. The Royals then claimed the Hawaiian and kept him on their roster for the remainder of the 2010 season to earn his rights.

In total, Texeira posted a 4.84 ERA with 4.8 K/9, 3.7 BB/9 and a 52.2% ground ball rate in 61 1/3 innings of relief last year. He has struggled in 2011, allowing 13 hits and 3 walks in 6 1/3 innings without a strikeout. Earlier in the year, Yankees GM Brian Cashman claimed reliever Jess Todd, only to lose him to the Cardinals, soon afterward.
