  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Officially placed on IL

    Cortes was placed on the 15-day injured list Thursday, retroactive to June 5, with a left rotator cuff strain.

    Cortes was diagnosed with the injury earlier this week and is going to be shut down from throwing for at least the next 13 days or so. The best-case scenario probably puts him back in the Yankees' rotation just before the All-Star break. Randy Vasquez will be up to make a spot start in the second half of Thursday's doubleheader against the White Sox, but New York won't need a dedicated fifth starter again until closer to the end of June.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Shut down from throwing for 15 days

    Cortes (shoulder) told reporters Tuesday that he will be shut down from throwing for 15 days, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

    Cortes will be placed on the 15-day injured list with inflammation in his left shoulder after feeling a twinge in a start against the Angels in which he threw 101 pitches. He received a cortisone shot in the shoulder Tuesday, and he'll be evaluated by the team after 10 days, Max Goodman of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. The left-hander will likely need to throw several bullpens and make a rehab start or two before he's ready to return to the Yankees' rotation. That likely puts him out throughout the month of June with a chance to return to the rotation in the early part of July at the earliest.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Likely heading to injured list

    Manager Aaron Boone said Sunday that Cortes will likely be placed on the injured list with a shoulder injury, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    Cortes tossed a season-high 101 pitches Tuesday against the Angels and allowed two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out six in five innings to earn the win. However, he wasn't listed as a probable starter for the Yankees during their upcoming series against the White Sox, and he's apparently dealing with a shoulder issue that will force him to miss time. The southpaw will undergo an MRI on Monday or Tuesday to determine the extent of his injury. However, Boone hopes Cortes will miss just two or three starts. It's not yet clear who will take Cortes' place in the rotation.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Surrenders two runs in win

    Cortes (5-2) allowed two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out six over five innings and earning the win over the Mariners on Tuesday.

    Cortes blanked the Mariners over the first four innings, but a leadoff walk and a pair of doubles plated two runs in the fifth and Cortes was replaced after getting through the frame with 101 pitches for the night. The 28-year-old showed some life on his fastball, as it was averaging 92.1 MPH. He registered 14 whiffs on the evening and recorded six strikeouts for the second time over his last three outings. Despite an ERA of 5.16, Cortes is tied for fifth in the majors with a multitude of other pitchers at five wins this season. He'll take a 1.30 WHIP and 59:19 K:BB into his next start, which is projected to come against the White Sox next week.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Hits wall in no-decision

    Cortes didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 9-6 loss to the Orioles, giving up four runs on five hits and two walks over six-plus innings. He struck out five.

    The southpaw held Baltimore mostly in check through six innings, allowing only a Ryan Mountcastle solo shot and getting handed a 5-1 lead, but Cortes faded fast in the seventh, walking Anthony Santander and giving up a single to Austin Hays before Adam Frazier tagged him for a three-run homer. He still exited the game in line for the win, but Jimmy Cordero was even more ineffective after replacing him. Cortes has allowed at least four runs in three of his last five starts and has now served up 10 homers in 54.1 innings on the year, leaving him with a 5.30 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 53:16 K:BB. He'll try to bounce back in his next outing, which is likely to come early next week in Seattle.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Produces quality start

    Cortes (4-2) earned the win Thursday, allowing two runs on five hits and one walk over six innings against the Blue Jays. He struck out six.

    Cortes rolled through the Toronto lineup, posting his best start in over a month. The lefty hadn't completed six innings over his previous four starts. Despite the quality start, Cortes has allowed at least two runs in every start since his season debut back on April 3. After consecutive seasons with an ERA under 3.00, Cortes is sporting a 5.21 ERA in 2023.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Serves up six runs in no-decision

    Cortes did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing six runs on seven hits and two walks across 4.1 innings during a 9-8 win over Tampa Bay. He struck out three.

    Cortes was sharp to start, allowing just one run through his first four innings, but he got into major trouble in the fifth and was charged with five runs in the frame, including a grand slam by Yandy Diaz. The left-hander was dominant in 2022, posting a 2.44 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 163:38 K:BB through 158.1 innings, but he's struggled to find any rhythm to begin 2023 and sports a 5.53 ERA over his first eight starts (42.1 innings). He hasn't picked up a win since April 20.
