Rays plan to limit Glasnow with extra rest, shortened starts

Rays plan to limit Glasnow with extra rest, shortened starts The Tampa Bay Rays are riding high atop the American League East thanks in large part to Tyler Glasnow's breakout performance in April. But despite Glasnow turning into a legitimate Cy Young candidate almost overnight, Tampa Bay is taking no chances. Going forward, the team is planning to scale back its use of the AL's ERA leader in order to reduce his workload. "He threw 112 innings last year and we have to monitor that," Rays manager Kevin Cash told Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. "Believe me, it's tough for (pitching coach Kyle Snyder) and I to take him out of the game when he’s pitching like that." The 25-year-old has dazzled in the early goings of 2019.

Kendrys Morales also came through much earlier in the night with his first home run as a Yankee.

New York bailed out Chad Green, who gave up two go-ahead runs in the eighth inning.

"Guys that we didn't necessarily expect to be major contributors have asserted themselves in that role," manager Aaron Boone said before the game. "They have climbed the ladder in our eyes."

The Yankee offense was held quiet for most of the night, aside from a blast from its newest addition. Morales hit a moonshot in the second inning that went 417 feet.

The Yankees acquired Morales in a deal with Oakland this week for cash considerations or a player to be named later. He had been designated for the assignment by the A's, his sixth major league team.

Players say Yankees, Dodgers have MLB’s best uniforms

Players say Yankees, Dodgers have MLB’s best uniforms A poll of current players was conducted by MLB.com recently focusing on which team boasts the game’s best uniform. In what can’t be considered too much of a surprise, the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers tied for the top spot. “Just the crisp, clean white with the blue lettering and the one red number. That’s really clean. And even their grey uniforms with the blue and just the red number kind of stands out,” Red Sox veteran Brock Holt said about the Dodgers uniforms. Meanwhile, the Yankees’ ranking was more about their history and the well-known pinstripes. “It’s such a historic one.

"New York can be big," Boone said. "Playing here can be big. You want (new players) to feel comfortable, feel at home in the room. I think our guys do a great job of that and I try to be a part of that."

The Yankees got another good outing from Sabathia, who allowed one run over six innings. This was his longest start of the season and lowered his ERA to 2.97. It's hard to imagine where the Yankees, or their decimated starting rotation, would be without him.

The only problem for Sabathia was that the Yankee offense wasn't able to give him much help.

They were held in check by opener Ryne Stanek and then Yonny Chirinos, who threw 4 2/3 scoreless innings.

It was the 13th time the Rays used an opener this season, and all but one has come with Stanek on the mound. In total, their openers have a 1.74 ERA over 13 games this year.

"We know it presents a challenge obviously, because they have good pitchers that they're going to run in there against you," Boone said. "But we feel like it's not something that's foreign to us now. That at least creates a little bit of comfort."

The Yankees have not been in first place since March 29. The season could have spiraled out of control with 13 players currently on the injured list, but the depth pickups and shrewd moves by general manager Brian Cashman have prevented further damage.

"(The organization) has done a really job of building depth and identifying the right people to go after when we are in need of certain things," Boone said.

"That's a big reason why though we've had as much adversity and as many injuries that we've had, we've had a lot of good players waiting in the wings to step in. To their credit, they've come in, step in and performed and not been overwhelmed."
