  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Takes loss Friday

    Cortes (2-3) took the loss Friday versus Tampa Bay. He allowed two runs on five hits and struck out five in 4.2 innings.

    The southpaw allowed a solo shot to Nelson Cruz in the first inning and an RBI single to Kevin Kiermaier in the second to account for the runs on his line. Cortes wasn't bad, but the Yankees' offense fell short in a ninth-inning rally. He'll end the regular season with a 2.90 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 103:25 K:BB across 93 innings. Those numbers could give him a path to being in the postseason rotation should the Yankees get that far.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Takes no-decision against Red Sox

    Cortes yielded two runs on four hits over 4.1 innings Saturday against Boston. He had four strikeouts and did not factor into the decision.

    Cortes gave up a solo homer to Kevin Plawecki in the third inning and was chased from the game with one out in the fifth after giving up singles to Plawecki and Kyle Schwarber. Cortes hasn't been able to complete five innings in either of his last two starts, but he's at least limited the damage to five total runs while providing 11 strikeouts against just two walks. He projects to face the Rays at home next Friday in his final start of the regular season.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Chased in fifth inning

    Cortes allowed three runs on five hits and two walks over 4.1 innings in Monday's win over Texas. He struck out seven and did not factor in the decision.

    Cortes snuck out of a two-on, no-out jam in the first inning and was then in total control through four scoreless frames. He allowed two runs in the fifth, including a solo home run by Charlie Culberson, and was charged with a third run after Chad Green gave up an RBI sacrifice fly later in the frame. Cortes has allowed at least one home run in nine consecutive appearances but has yielded three or fewer runs in seven straight. The 26-year-old lefty will carry a 2.79 ERA into his projected start in Boston this weekend.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Pitches into seventh

    Cortes pitched 6.1 innings, surrendering one run on three hits and two walks while striking out 11 in Wednesday's win over the Orioles. He did not factor into the game's decision.

    The southpaw gave up a solo home run to Austin Hays in the sixth inning, which proved to be the only damage against him in the start. The 11 strikeouts were a career high for the 26-year-old in what was his second longest outing of the year. In his last six starts he has collected four quality starts while posting a 2.47 ERA and 1.05 WHIP. He's lined up to face the Rangers on Monday in his next start.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Turns in quality start Thursday

    Cortes allowed two runs on six hits and struck out five across six innings in a no-decision versus Toronto on Thursday.

    The 26-year-old gave up solo home runs to Bo Bichette and Randal Grichuk in the contest, but he was able to limit the damage there. Cortes has not allowed more than three runs in any of his last five starts, surrendering nine runs in 30 innings during that span. That's right in line with his season work, where he's posted a 2.70 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 76:21 K:BB across 73.1 innings in 18 outings (10 starts). The southpaw projects for a favorable road start in Baltimore next week.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Takes no-decision versus Baltimore

    Cortes allowed a run on four hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in 5.2 innings versus Baltimore on Friday. He did not factor in the decision.

    The southpaw pitched well enough to win, allowing just a solo home run to Trey Mancini in the sixth inning, but the Yankees' bullpen couldn't maintain a one-run lead. Cortes instead took a no-decision for the first time in his last five starts. He's allowed seven runs across his last 24 innings. Cortes owns a 2.67 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 71:21 K:BB through 67.1 innings this year. He'll try to get back in the win column next week in a tougher home matchup versus Toronto.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Can't escape sixth inning

    Cortes (2-2) was tagged with the loss Saturday against the Athletics after allowing three runs on four hits and three walks while fanning four across 5.1 innings.

    Cortes was coming off two straight quality starts but was unable to extend the streak here, as the Athletics chased him out of the game with two outs left in the sixth after a single from Mark Canha. The left-hander has struggled to pitch deep into games, but he has been doing a good job so far and has given up three or fewer runs in six of his last seven appearances.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Fans seven in win

    Cortes (2-1) allowed two runs on four hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in seven innings Friday, earning the win over Minnesota.

    The southpaw's only mistake was a two-run home run to Josh Donaldson in the sixth inning, but the Yankees were never in any real danger Friday. Cortes has turned in quality starts his last two times on the hill. He's at a 2.56 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 60:16 K:BB across 56.1 innings in 15 appearances (seven starts). It's unclear if Cortes has done enough to keep himself in the rotation, but if he takes another turn, it would likely be in Oakland during next weekend's four-game series.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Picks up first win

    Cortes (1-1) allowed one run on seven hits and a walk over six innings Sunday, striking out seven and earning a win over the White Sox.

    Cortes coughed up six singles through five shutout frames before Andrew Vaughn finally broke through with a solo shot in the sixth. It was the longest outing of his career and his seven punchouts tied his career best. The 26-year-old has finished at least five innings in each of his last four outings and his season ERA fell to 2.55 after Sunday's performance. Cortes is currently lined up to face the Twins at home next week.
