  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Exits with left groin injury

    Cortes was removed from Game 4 of the ALCS against the Astros on Sunday due to a left groin injury. Cortes was visited by a trainer early in Sunday's matchup and remained in the game, but he was removed after allowing a three-run homer with no outs in the top of the third inning. Prior to his departure, he allowed three runs on two hits and three walks while striking out two in two innings. The severity of the issue isn't clear, and whether he's available later in the postseason if the Yankees advance remains to be seen.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Starting Game 5 of ALDS

    Cortes will start Tuesday's Game 5 of the ALDS against Cleveland, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports. The Yankees will be able to deploy Cortes on three days rest after Game 5 was moved to Tuesday due to inclement weather. Jameson Taillon, who was slated to start Monday, figures to be available out of the bullpen if needed.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Available out of bullpen for Game 5

    Cortes will be available out of the bullpen for Game 5 of the ALDS against the Guardians on Monday, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports. Cortes started Game 2 of the ALDS on Friday and allowed two runs on six hits and three walks while striking out three in five innings. He didn't factor into the decision and will be available in a relief role on short rest if needed Monday as the Yankees attempt to advance to the ALCS.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Dominates again in win

    Cortes (12-4) earned the win Saturday, allowing one hit and two walks over 7.1 scoreless innings against the Orioles while striking out 12. Cortes put on a clinic Saturday, striking out seven of the first nine batters he faced while never allowing a runner to reach second base. He generated 20 swinging strikes and dominated Orioles hitters with his four-seamer all afternoon. The left-hander has now pitched 13.1 scoreless innings over his last two starts while allowing just two hits over that stretch. His 12 strikeouts Saturday also matched a career high.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Shuts down Boston

    Cortes (11-4) earned the win during Sunday's 2-0 victory over Boston, allowing one hit while walking two and striking out five in six scoreless innings. Cortes pitched the whole game as rain forced the contest to go final after six frames and encountered trouble only in the fourth, when a two-out Rob Refsnyder double put runners on second and third. However, he was able to strike out Triston Casas to end the inning. The 27-year-old pitcher's game score of 72 is his highest mark since May 26, as he's continued to pitch well but hasn't gone as deep into games, averaging just under 5.2 innings during 10 second-half starts. Cortes carries a 2.56 ERA and 0.97 WHIP into his next start, scheduled against Baltimore.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Allows one run over five innings

    Cortes did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing one run on five hits and two walks over five innings against Pittsburgh. He struck out four. For the second start in a row, Cortes allowed one run over five innings, but he got his pitch count up to 87 after throwing just 65 pitches in his last start. The 27-year-old has failed to record a scoreless outing in eight starts since July 24, but he still owns a healthy 2.67 ERA and 0.97 WHIP through 145 innings this season. He tentatively lines up to face Boston this weekend.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Earns win against Rival Red Sox

    Cortes (10-4) earned the win Wednesday, allowing one run on three hits and two walks over five innings in a 5-3 win over Boston. He struck out seven. Cortes allowed his only run on a double from Connor Wong to cut the Yankees' lead to two in the fifth inning. The lefty has recorded six strikeouts or more in just five of his last 15 starts. On the other hand, the 27-year-old has not allowed a home run in six of his last nine starts, his lowest home-run rate of any nine-game stretch this season.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Four innings in return

    Cortes (groin) allowed two runs on two hits while striking out two in four innings in a 4-3 loss Thursday against Minnesota. He did not factor into the decision. In his first outing since Aug. 21, Cortes retired the first 12 batters he faced before giving up consecutive hits to start the fifth. The lefty did not make any rehab starts and it's not surprising that he was removed after throwing 58 pitches. He's allowed two or fewer walks in 15 of his 24 starts this season and has a career-best 5.7 percent walk rate on the year. With New York using a six-man rotation and two upcoming off days, his next start likely won't be until next weekend in Milwaukee.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Activated for Thursday's start

    Cortes (groin) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list ahead of his start against the Twins on Thursday. The left-hander has been sidelined the past two and half weeks by a groin strain but will re-enter New York's rotation for Thursday's series finale versus Minnesota. Cortes threw a 45-pitch live batting practice session over the weekend and is likely to face some workload limitations in his first start back from the injury.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Set to return Thursday

    The Yankees plan to activate Cortes (groin) from the 15-day injured list to start Thursday's game against the Twins. Cortes will be ready to rejoin the rotation after a near-minimum-length stay on the shelf following his placement on the IL on Aug. 25. Though he didn't make a rehab start while he was on the mend from the left groin strain, Cortes was able to complete a 45-pitch live batting practice session last weekend. Cortes could have some light workload restrictions Thursday as a result, so the Yankees may need Clarke Schmidt to piggyback him to some extent.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Poised to start Thursday

    Cortes (groin) appears in line to return from the 15-day injured list to start Thursday's series finale with the Twins in New York, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Cortes looks like he'll be ready to rejoin the rotation without requiring a rehab start, as the Yankees seem to be comfortable with activating him after he completed a 45-pitch live batting practice session over the weekend. Before the Yankees confirm his return from the IL, the southpaw will likely throw a bullpen session Monday or Tuesday as one final test to prove that he's moved past the left groin strain. Cortes could be on a restricted pitch count if he ends up starting Thursday as anticipated, with Clarke Schmidt potentially piggybacking him.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Throws live BP

    Cortes (groin) threw 45 pitches during live batting practice Saturday, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Cortes threw a bullpen session Wednesday that apparently went well since he was able to face live hitters as expected Saturday. He incorporated all of his pitches during the throwing session and expects to rejoin the Yankees' starting rotation next week.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Side session on tap

    Cortes (groin) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday and then live batting practice Saturday, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports. Cortes is progressing quickly from a groin strain that landed him on the 15-day IL, and he should be ready to return after missing the minimum if all goes well in his upcoming rehab. Manager Aaron Boone stated that Cortes will slot right back into the Yankees' starting rotation once he's activated, per Rivera.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Optimistic about quick return

    Cortes (groin) was running sprints shortly after he was placed on the 15-day IL on Thursday, and he's optimistic that his absence will be brief, Randy Miller of NJ Advance Media reports. It seems strange that Cortes was able to sprint so soon after being diagnosed with a Grade 2 groin strain, but it bodes well for his chances of being activated when first eligible. The lefty starter indicated optimism about that scenario, stating, "The way I feel (Thursday), I'm hoping another 15 days will be exactly what I need." Cortes has already exceeded his career high as a professional with 131 innings this season, so the time off could help prevent him from wearing down in the postseason.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Officially lands on injured list

    Cortes was placed on the 15-day injured list with a left groin strain Thursday, retroactive to Aug. 22. Since Cortes' move to the injured list was backdated to Monday, he'll be eligible to return as early as Sept. 6. However, it's not yet clear how much time the Yankees expect him to miss. Greg Weissert was called up as part of a corresponding move, but it's possible that Clarke Schmidt claims a spot in the starting rotation until Cortes is cleared to return.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Ticketed for injured list

    The Yankees are expected to place Cortes on the 15-day injured list Thursday due to a groin injury, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports. Reliever Greg Weissert will be called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to take over Cortes' spot on the 26-man active roster, but the Yankees could turn to multi-inning reliever Clarke Schmidt to step in as their fifth starter while Cortes is on the shelf. Based on Cortes' recent performances, it wasn't evident that he was pitching through any injury; he's generated a 2.55 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 38:9 K:BB in 42.1 innings over his last seven starts.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Another quality start Sunday

    Cortes allowed a run on three hits and a walk while striking out five in six innings during Sunday's win over the Blue Jays. He didn't factor into the decision. Cortes' strikeout numbers have dropped since striking out 10 batters against the Mariners on Aug. 10, but he posted a third consecutive quality start Sunday. The southpaw was forced to settle for a no-decision during the low-scoring matchup, and he's yet to earn a win over four starts in August. Cortes has posted a 2.80 ERA and 0.85 WHIP in 35.1 innings since the All-Star break and tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Oakland on Saturday.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Quality start in loss

    Cortes (9-4) took the defeat Tuesday against Tampa Bay, allowing three runs on four hits while striking out three in seven innings. All three runs against Cortes came in the first inning as he allowed singles to the first two batters and then a three-run homer to Randy Arozarena with one out. He didn't allow another hit until the sixth inning, retiring 20 of the last 21 batters he faced. The lefty has allowed three runs or fewer in six straight starts, compiling a 2.72 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 33:8 K:BB in 36.1 innings over that span.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Punches out 10

    Cortes allowed three earned runs on three hits and a walk while striking out 10 across six innings Wednesday against the Mariners. He did not factor into the decision. Cortes fell apart late in the start, as he began with 5.1 scoreless frames. Nevertheless, he struck out double-digit batters for the first time in 14 starts -- dating back to May 15 -- and also tallied his third quality start in his last five outings. Cortes has maintained an excellent 2.67 ERA and 125:29 K:BB across 118 innings for the season.

  • Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Walks four in no-decision

    Cortes allowed two runs on a hit and four walks while striking out four over 5.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Cardinals on Friday. Cortes was nearly unhittable, but that may have been because he wasn't offering much worth swinging at. The southpaw threw just 48 of 83 pitches for strikes, with the only hit against him being a Yadier Molina RBI single in the second inning. Cortes has allowed 10 runs in 33 innings across his last six starts. For the season, he owns a 2.57 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 115:28 K:BB through 112 innings across 20 starts. He'll resume the hunt for his 10th win of the year next week in a projected start in Seattle.
