      Padres' Bryan Mitchell: Rotation spot secure

      San Diego Padres manager Andy Green said prior to spring training that Bryan Mitchell has a spot in the rotation locked up, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.When the Padres acquired Mitchell from the Yankees in December, it was generally expected that the right-hander would have the inside track for a starting gig, but it's somewhat surprising that a pitcher with a career 4.94 ERA and 5.8 K/9 rate who spent most of 2017 at Triple-A won't even have to compete for a rotation spot. That speaks to the confidence the front office and coaching staff has in Mitchell, whose strong track record in the minors gives the Padres reason to think he's capable of more while trading Yankee Stadium for Petco Park. In 14 appearances (13 starts) with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre last season, MItchell sported a stellar 20.4 K-BB% and 55.4 percent groundball rate, numbers supported by a three-pitch repertoire that includes a mid-90s fastball and an effective curveball and cutter.

      Padres' Bryan Mitchell: Dealt to Padres

      Bryan Mitchell was traded to the San Diego Padres along with Chase Headley on Tuesday in exchange for Jabari Blash, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.This amounts to a salary dump for the Yankees, although it seems the Padres had legitimate interest in Mitchell, who is not arbitration eligible until next offseason. A 26-year-old righty, Mitchell posted an impressive 3.25 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 66 strikeouts in 63.2 innings (primarily as a starter) at Triple-A last season. However, he has a 4.94 ERA and 64:44 K:BB in 98.1 career innings in the big leagues, working primarily in relief. The Padres will give him a shot in the rotation, as they lack quality big-league-ready options. He has a 3.76 ERA in nine MLB starts, so perhaps he's just not cut out for relief. His mid-90s fastball is a quality pitch, but his secondaries don't grade out as well.

      Bryan Mitchell was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.With rosters expanding, the New York Yankees called up a handful of players on the 40-man roster. Mitchell was working as a starter at Triple-A, but will likely serve as a mop-up man out of the big-league bullpen.

      Yankees' Bryan Mitchell: Returns to minors

      Bryan Mitchell was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.Mitchell being sent down to the minors was likely done in preparation for Masahiro Tanaka's (shoulder) upcoming activation from the disabled list. Mitchell threw six innings over three games during his latest stint with the big club, during which he allowed four runs on 10 hits and two walks.

      Yankees' Bryan Mitchell: Could join rotation

      Bryan Mitchell is an option to take Masahiro Tanaka's (shoulder) place in the starting rotation, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.Mitchell filled in for a spot start earlier this season, allowing one earned run over five innings in a no-decision against the Twins, and would presumably line up to face the Mets in Monday's series opener. Luis Cessa, who has made four major-league starts this season, is the other option to take the mound, but the opportunity will likely only consist of two starts either way.

      Yankees' Bryan Mitchell: Back with the Yankees

      Bryan Mitchell was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in advance of Tuesday's matchup with the Blue Jays.Mitchell last saw the majors with a spot start July 17, when he surrendered one earned run on six hits and two walks in a no-decision. He'll be back in the bullpen this time around, taking the roster spot of Jordan Montgomery, who was demoted to Triple-A on Sunday. Look for Mitchell, who has a 4.29 ERA in the majors this season, to serve in low-leverage situations, as well as a potential long-relief candidate.

      Yankees' Bryan Mitchell: Optioned to Triple-A

Luis Cessa, who joins the rotation Tuesday, was recalled as a corresponding move.

      Yankees' Bryan Mitchell: No-decision in spot start Monday

      Bryan Mitchell allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits with two walks and two strikeouts over five innings in Monday's no-decision against the Twins.Mitchell struggled in the fielding department during his first start of the season, allowing a run to score when he failed to catch a routine throw covering first base with two outs in the third, then turning what would have been a routine grounder to shortstop into a single by knocking it down with his bare hand. The 26-year-old right-hander's negative impact in the field was minimized by the rest of New York's defense stepping up, highlighted by an Aaron Judge outfield assist at home plate. Mitchell owns a 4.29 ERA and 12:9 K:BB in 21 innings, and he'll likely move back down to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after this spot start.

      Yankees' Bryan Mitchell: Will start Monday

      Bryan Mitchell will start Monday's game against the Twins, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.Mitchell was called up as the 26th man for Sunday's doubleheader, but the New York Yankees decided to keep him on the roster for at least one more day in order to make a spot start Monday night against the Twins. Mitchell has pitched exclusively out of the bullpen in 12 appearances with the big club this year and owns a subpar 5.06 ERA, but he has found some success as a starter, posting a 3.60 ERA through nine starts this year at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and a 3.24 ERA over five September starts with New York last year.

      Yankees' Bryan Mitchell: Serving as 26th man for doubleheader

      Bryan Mitchell was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and will serve as the New York Yankees' 26th man in the team's doubleheader Sunday with the Red Sox.Mitchell was initially listed as a projected starter for one of the two games of the doubleheader, but after CC Sabathia was moved up in the pitching schedule, Mitchell will instead be available in long relief during the twin bill. If Mitchell ends up going unused Sunday, he could stick with the big club and make a spot start Monday against the Twins before likely heading back to the minors. Over 12 appearances with the Yankees this season, Mitchell has compiled a 5.06 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 16 innings.
