Sean Newcomb will pitch inside Yankee Stadium for the first time in his life on Tuesday. In fact, none of his 35 career starts have come against the Yankees.
Atlanta skeptics cite the Braves’ thin pitching staff, most especially now that Mike Soroka doesn’t look like he’s going to be in picture this season but Newcomb makes up half of a wicked 1-2 punch at the top of the rotation, along with righty Mike Foltynewicz.
Just 25 years old out of Brockton, Mass., Newcomb has cut his walks per nine innings down from 5.1 last season to 3.9 in 2018. As a result, he’s got his ERA+ up to 143 and his WHIP down under 1.20, despite striking out a full batter less every nine.
Atlanta swept the Cardinals in St. Louis over the weekend after welcoming back Ronald Acuna Jr. The bullpen will get stronger this week with the return of closer Arodys Vizcaino.
New York Yankees
The Yankees got the better of the Red Sox over the weekend, blowing out Boston in the opener and finale, losing badly in between.
Aaron Hicks hit three homers on Sunday night; Aaron Judge, Miguel Andujar and Kyle Higashioka each hit one. Higashioka’s was his first big league hit, getting some time behind the dish as one of the Yankees’ replacements for Gary Sanchez.
Domingo German’s numbers as a starter this season don’t look great but he’s often plagued — as young starting pitchers are — by one bad inning.
It may take him time to get over that but his days as a fixture in the rotation could be limited with Masahiro Tanaka on his way back in the next week or two.
