Loaisiga (3-0) allowed one run (zero earned) on one hit and one walk along with a punchout across two innings Friday as he picked up the win over the Red Sox. Loaisiga entered in the 11th and instantly ran into trouble as he allowed Michael Chavis to advance to third on a wild pitch before he came in to score on a Christian Arroyo single. Loaisiga soon found himself in a bases-loaded jam with one out but was able to pitch himself out of it by striking out J.D. Martinez and getting Christian Vazquez to fly out. He came back out for the 12th after the Yankees were able to retake the lead in the top half of the inning and sent the Red Sox hitters down in order to pick up his third win of 2020. Loaisiga owns a 2.70 ERA and 21:5 K:BB across 20 innings, and he should see more work down the stretch while the Yankees push for a playoff spot.
Loaisiga (undisclosed) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday. Loaisiga had a minimum stay on the injured list after being sidelined in early September for an undisclosed reason. He'll be available out of the bullpen going forward as the Yankees prepare for a likely playoff run. The right-hander last pitched Sept. 1, and he had a 3.18 ERA and 1.06 WHIP over 17 innings prior to his absence.
Loaisiga is set to be activated off the injured list Tuesday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. The reason for Loaisiga's stint on the IL has not been revealed, but it appears to be resolved as the right-hander is expected to return to the active roster Tuesday. Loaisiga last pitched Sept. 1, so he may have some rust upon returning to the mound. The 25-year-old has compiled a 3.18 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 20:4 K:BB over 17 innings this season.
Loaisiga (undisclosed) threw a bullpen session Friday and is on track to be activated Tuesday, Max Goodman of Sports Illustrated reports. The nature of Loaisiga's issue has not been disclosed, though manager Aaron Boone has clarified that it is not related to COVID-19. Assuming Loasiga's bullpen went well Friday, he'll toss another Sunday and could then be activated off the injured list before the team's critical three-game series against Toronto that begins Tuesday.
Loaisiga was Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com retroactive to Wednesday for undisclosed reasons. The Yankees' vague language -- their announcement referred to the issue as "a medical condition that prevents him from playing and necessitates placement on the IL" -- makes this sound like a COVID-19 situation, though Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports that isn't the case. Loaisiga will be eligible to return from the injured list next Saturday, though the lack of clarity surrounding the issue makes it difficult to predict whether or not he'll be able to do so. Miguel Yajure was recalled to take his place in the bullpen.
