  • Yankees' Jonathan Loaisiga: Picks up win Thursday

    Loaisiga (1-1) earned the win against the White Sox on Thursday despite allowing two runs on one hit and one walk over one inning.

    Loaisiga has largely struggled this season, and Thursday was no different as he gave up a walk and a home run to the first two batters he faced. That allowed the White Sox to tie the score, but the Yankees exploded for seven runs in the top of the eighth to hand Loaisiga the victory. After posting a 2.17 ERA in 57 appearances in 2021, the right-hander has compiled a 5.93 ERA and 1.32 WHIP over his first 13.2 frames this season. He does have four holds, however.

  • Yankees' Jonathan Loaisiga: Charged with loss Sunday

    Loaisiga (0-1) allowed four runs on two hits and two walks while striking out one in one inning to take the loss in Sunday's matchup against Baltimore.

    Loaisiga entered Sunday's game in the bottom of the seventh inning with runners on first and third with two outs, and he struck out Austin Hays to end the frame. However, the right-hander struggled in the eighth inning, as he gave up two singles and two walks prior to his removal with two outs. Loaisiga had allowed just one run in 4.1 innings during his first five appearances of the season, but he took the loss Sunday. In spite of his rough outing against Baltimore, Loaisiga is one of the top setup men in baseball.

  • Yankees' Jonathan Loaisiga: Records hold Tuesday

    Loaisiga allowed two hits and struck out one in a scoreless inning Tuesday to notch a hold against Toronto.

    The right-hander threw 10 of 11 pitches for strikes in the outing, and he avoided great danger by getting Vladimir Guerrero Jr. to ground into a fielder's choice with two outs and a pair of runners on base. Loaisiga has held opponents scoreless in all three of his appearances this season while posting a 2:2 K:BB over 3.1 frames. He figures to be the primary bridge to Aroldis Chapman after racking up 17 holds in 2021.

  • Yankees' Jonathan Loaisiga: Hurls scoreless frame in return

    Loaisiga pitched a perfect inning against Toronto on Wednesday, striking out one batter.

    The right-hander made his return from a nearly four-week stay on the injured list and was called upon to face the heart of Toronto's order in the seventh inning. He did so with ease, striking out George Springer before getting both Marcus Semien and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. to ground out. Loaisiga's return is a major boon to the Yankees' bullpen, as he has notched nine wins, five saves and 17 holds while posting a 2.22 ERA and 1.01 WHIP across 55 appearances this season.

  • Yankees' Jonathan Loaisiga: Returns from IL

    The Yankees reinstated Loaisiga (shoulder) from the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

    New York optioned Andrew Heaney to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to open up a spot on the 28-man active roster for Loaisiga, who had been out since Sept. 5 with a strained rotator cuff. Before getting shut down with the injury, Loaisiga had factored into the ninth-inning mix, but Aroldis Chapman has since seemed to right the ship and regained security as the Yankees' clear closer. Loaisiga should still prove valuable in a setup role over the final five games of the regular season.

  • Yankees' Jonathan Loaisiga: Expected back Wednesday

    Loaisiga (shoulder) will likely be activated Wednesday, per

    The right-hander recently tossed a pair of successful bullpen sessions, setting him up for an imminent return to the active roster. Loaisiga last pitched Sept. 3, but he will likely be asked to handled a high-leverage bullpen role upon his return. He has been an invaluable part of the team's relief corps this season, notching nine wins, 17 holds and four saves while posting a 2.25 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 66:15 K:BB across 54 appearances.

  • Yankees' Jonathan Loaisiga: Could return next week

    Manager Aaron Boone said Friday that Loaisiga (shoulder) could be activated during the team's upcoming series against the Blue Jays, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

    Loaisiga threw a bullpen session Friday and still appears to be on the right track in his recovery. It's not yet clear whether the right-hander will require a rehab assignment before he's reinstated from the injured list, but he wouldn't require many appearances if he reports to the minor-league club.

  • Yankees' Jonathan Loaisiga: Bullpen scheduled for Friday

    Loaisiga (shoulder) threw from 120 feet Tuesday and will do the same Wednesday before throwing a bullpen session Friday, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

    The right-hander continues to make steady progress after hitting the injured list Sept. 5 with a strained right rotator cuff. The plans for Loaisiga beyond Friday's bullpen session aren't entirely clear, but even if the next step is to go on a minor-league rehab assignment, he should still have a chance to return for the last series or two of the regular season.

  • Yankees' Jonathan Loaisiga: Nearing mound work

    Loaisiga (shoulder) is expected to throw off flat ground three straight days this week before potentially returning to mound work next weekend, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

    Loasiga resumed throwing Friday and won't throw Monday before ramping up his throwing program again. The 27-year-old could return for the final week of the regular season if he continues to progress well in his recovery.

  • Yankees' Jonathan Loaisiga: Slated to throw Friday

    Loaisiga (shoulder) is expected to resume throwing Friday, Marly Rivera of reports.

    Loaisiga landed on the 10-day injured list with a strained rotator cuff Sept. 5, and he'll resume playing catch just under two weeks later. The right-hander doesn't yet have a clear timetable to return, but his status should come into focus once he's able to ramp up his throwing.

  • Yankees' Jonathan Loaisiga: Close to throwing

    Manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday that Loaisiga (shoulder) is "close" to throwing and is "making positive strides" after landing on the injured list last week, Marly Rivera of reports.

    The right-hander moved to the IL on Sept. 5 after suffering a strained rotator cuff. While Boone noted the progress, the club is still unsure of when exactly he'll resume playing catch. Once he's able to ramp up his throwing, Loaisiga's return timeline should gain some clarity, but for the time being it looks like he has a decent chance to return before the end of the regular season.

  • Yankees' Jonathan Loaisiga: Goes on IL

    Loaisiga was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a strained right rotator cuff, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    The right-hander will be re-evaluated after not throwing for 10 days, suggesting he'll spend longer than the minimum time on the IL. His absence is a huge blow to the Yankees' bullpen, as he's arguably been the most reliable late-inning option for manager Aaron Boone throughout the season. Albert Abreu was recalled Sunday to pick up some of the slack left by Loaisiga.

  • Yankees' Jonathan Loaisiga: Earns relief win

    Loaisiga (9-4) earned the win during Thursday's 7-6 victory against Oakland, allowing one walk with two strikeouts in two innings.

    Loaisiga pitched the seventh and eighth innings for New York and became the pitcher of record when it took the lead in the top of the ninth. The 26-year-old is enjoying a blistering August that features a 0.67 ERA in 13.1 innings, and he should remain a key cog in the bullpen down the stretch for manager Aaron Boone.

  • Yankees' Jonathan Loaisiga: Nails down fifth save

    Loaisiga gave up three hits over two scoreless innings to record his fifth save of the season during a 5-3 win over the Red Sox in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader. He struck out three without walking a batter.

    The right-hander picked up his first save in five appearances, as the Yankees have been mixing and matching in the closer role while Aroldis Chapman (elbow) remains sidelined. With Loaisiga having thrown 34 pitches (23 strikes) in the matinee, look for Chad Green or another reliever to get the call if the Yankees have another late lead to protect in the nightcap. Loaisiga has been the club's best option of late though, as he's been scored upon only once in his last 11 games and 12.2 innings.
