Mike Clevinger was good last season but he’s been way better so far in 2018.
The rock and roll 27-year-old only threw 120 innings last season, which included 21 starts and six appearances out of the bullpen. He’s thrown about 40 this season in six starts.
His ERA+ is even better than last season’s 150 (164) and it’s because he’s doing more pitching and less throwing.
Clevinger is striking out fewer batters this season — a lot fewer — 6.8 strikeouts per nine innings, versus over 10 last season. He’s also cut his walks and his home runs allowed in half.
Still, don’t expect him to dominate the Yankees. Toronto hit him a couple of starts ago and the Angels did a little bit of damage in his first outing of the season. Those are the two best offenses he has faced, to date.
New York Yankees
Domingo German will make his first start of the season in place of the injured Jordan Montgomery, whom the Yankees will sit for up to the next two months with a sore left elbow.
German has been effective in five appearances out of the bullpen thus far in 2018, but he hasn’t been any better than he was the last time he took the ball in relief of Montgomery, who lasted just an inning.
German gave up four hits and a walk in four innings, which was the extent of the damage. He struck out four and got a no-decision against the Astros. The Yankees eventually won the game, though, 4–0.
German has thrown right around 50 pitches in each of his five bullpen outings. I can’t imagine him going any more than five innings, even if things are going swimmingly.
Luckily, New York has more than enough horses out of the bullpen to keep the pressure off German needing to go five. Still, it would be helpful if Sonny Gray can get deep into the game on Saturday.
