Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Solid in spring action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle held opponents scoreless over four innings in Grapefruit League play, allowing three hits and two walks while striking out four.

Kahnle emerged as a key part of New York's bullpen last season, amassing 27 holds and registering a 35.5 percent strikeout rate. Armed with one of the premier changeups in baseball, Kahnle is capable of generating high strikeout numbers and could be first in line for save opportunities should Aroldis Chapman miss any period of time.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Reaches one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle and the Yankees agreed to terms on a one-year, $2.65 million contract Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Kahnle threw 61.1 innings for the Yankees last season, posting a 3.67 ERA and a 35.5 percent strikeout rate. It was a significant bounce-back from his struggles in 2018, when he recorded a 6.56 ERA in 23.1 innings

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Available Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle (hand) is available Friday against Toronto, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

Kahnle battled wrist tendinitis earlier in the week but returned to pitch an inning Thursday against the Tigers. He then injured his hand on a bin of sunflower seeds in the dugout and had to be checked out by team trainers, but he's apparently been cleared to pitch.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Shaky in relief outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle (wrist) surrendered two runs on a hit and a walk while striking out one over one innings in Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Tigers.

Kahnle hadn't pitched since Saturday due to right wrist tendinitis, but he was able to return to the mound for the nightcap. After struggling through his outing, he hurt his hand on a sunflower seeds bin in the dugout, per Bryan Hoch of, which warranted further evaluation by team trainers. The Yankees have yet to issue an update on the right-hander's status.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Dealing with wrist tendinitis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle was unavailable for Tuesday's game against the Tigers due to right wrist tendinitis, Bryan Hoch of reports.

The 30-year-old hasn't pitched since Saturday when he gave up two hits in one-third of an inning. Manager Aaron Boone expects him to be available Wednesday, and per Lindsey Adler of The Athletic, Kahnle said the tendinitis cropped up over the last few days, though it's since cleared up.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Notches 17th hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle picked up his 17th hold of the season while notching a strikeout as part of a perfect seventh inning Thursday in the Yankees' 8-4 win over the Rays.

After a rough 2018 campaign in the Bronx, Kahnle has regained more than a full tick on his fastball and has seen his performance bounce back accordingly. Along with free-agent pickups Adam Ottavino and Zack Britton, Kahnle has firmly established himself as one of the top setup options for closer Aroldis Chapman. In addition to his lofty holds total, Kahnle has submitted a 3.18 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 49 strikeouts over 34 frames.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Inks deal with Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle signed a one-year contract with the Yankees on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

Kahnle had a rough season out of the bullpen for the Yankees in 2018, posting a 6.56 ERA with a 1.63 WHIP and 30 punchouts across 23.1 innings. The 29-year-old does own a career 3.89 ERA and 1.35 WHIP and found success in 2016-17 with the White Sox.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Notches win in extra innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle (2-0) registered the win in extra innings Saturday, working around a hit to strike out a batter in a scoreless frame.

The right-hander has allowed at least one run in three of his last five outings while working in low-leverage spots, but Kahnle came through in this one to preserve a tie before the Yankees won it in the 11th. This victory did little to clean up his 6.75 ERA on the season, though.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Records first save of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle struck out one in a perfect inning of work to earn his first save of the season Tuesday against the Marlins.

With the game in extra innings, Aroldis Chapman (knee) was called upon to protect a one-run lead before leaving with an injury. Kahnle was summoned to close it out and did so with aplomb, retiring the side on 17 pitches. With numerous other options in the bullpen, including the likes of Dellin Betances, David Robertson (shoulder) and Zach Britton, Kahnle seems quite unlikely to see many more save opportunities, even if Chapman misses time.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Called up Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

Kahnle will take the roster place of Luis Cessa, who was optioned back to the minors following his start against Tampa Bay on Wednesday. Though Kahnle tossed an inning of work versus Boston earlier this month, he's only appeared in nine games for the Yankees this season, as he's spent a majority of the past couple months at the Triple-A level working through some velocity issues.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Optioned back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle was sent down to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday.

Kahnle was returned to Triple-A after tossing a spotless inning of relief during Friday's contest. That marked his first appearance with the Yankees since May, though it's clear manager Aaron Boone doesn't have a concrete role ready for the right-hander at the moment.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Joins Yankees on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday, DJ Eberle of the Times Leader reports.

The Yankees are optimistic that Kahnle will be available for Friday's contest in Boston, but there's a chance he won't arrive on time after being promoted just five hours prior to the first pitch. Kahnle has spent a majority of the 2018 campaign working out the kinks at the Triple-A level, which includes a concerning dip in velocity from a season ago. Across his past 17 appearances for the RailRiders dating back to June 15, he's logged a 1.62 ERA and 0.90 WHIP with 23 strikeouts in 16.2 innings of relief.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday.

Kahnle has struggled mightily for the Yankees this season, compiling an unsightly 7.00 ERA, 1.78 WHIP and 10.0 BB/9 across nine innings, so he'll head back to the minors to clear his head and work some kinks out. Adam Warren, who was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding roster move, will take his place in the bullpen and on the active roster. Kahnle owns an impressive 2.60 ERA and 12.1 K/9 over 90 innings the past two seasons, so he should be back with the big club after he gets back on track with the RailRiders.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Comes off DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle (shoulder) has been reinstated from the 10-day disabled list ahead of Friday's matchup against the Angels.

Kahnle has returned from his rehab assignment at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and will be available to come out of the bullpen Friday. He appeared in six games, accruing a 6.14 ERA and 1.64 WHIP with nine strikeouts, prior to hitting the disabled list.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Progresses to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle (shoulder) will head to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday for the next step of his rehab assignment, DJ Eberle of the Times Leader News reports.

Kahnle is expected to return to the Yankees in the near future as he works his way through the minor-league ranks. He'll aim to test his shoulder one last time at Triple-A before coming off the disabled list. Barring any major setbacks, Kahnle could be reinstated from the DL in time for New York's weekend series with the Angels.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Eying weekend return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Aaron Boone said Kahnle (shoulder) is hoping to return from the 10-day disabled list Friday, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Kahnle was originally hoping to rejoin the Yankees prior to Monday's series opener against the Twins, but it now sounds like Friday is a more realistic return date. He's set to begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Low-A Charleston on Monday, and if all goes well he could be back in the Yankees' bullpen by the weekend. The reliever has been sidelined since mid-April with a shoulder injury.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Heads to Tampa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle (shoulder) will travel to Tampa on Sunday and could return to the Yankees for the series in Texas beginning May 21, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Kahnle continues to gradually work his way back into game shape, recently throwing a 20-pitch bullpen session Wednesday during his first time back on a mound since suffering a shoulder injury in April. It's expected that Kahnle will appear in a couple rehab outings before his return to the majors.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Tosses 20-pitch bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle (shoulder) felt "great" following a 20-pitch bullpen session Wednesday, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Kahnle has been sidelined since the middle of May due to right shoulder tendinitis, but he believes that he will be back in action before the end of the month after mixing in a variety of different pitches during Wednesday's session. This marked the first time he was able to get back on the mound, so expect him to partake in a couple more bullpens before facing hitters in live batting practice.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Closing in on mound work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle (shoulder) said Sunday that he expects to throw a bullpen session during the upcoming week, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

Kahnle has been limited to throwing off flat ground for roughly a week, and with the righty experiencing no renewed pain in his shoulder, it appears he's ready to graduate to mound work. It's expected that Kahnle will throw off a mound a couple of times before advancing to facing hitters in live batting practice and then beginning a rehab assignment. If he endures no setbacks along the way, Kahnle should return from the 10-day disabled list by the end of the month.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Resumes throwing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle (shoulder) played catch Sunday, Marc Carig of The Athletic New York reports.

Now that Kahnle has resumed throwing, the righty will look to steadily increase the intensity of his workouts. It remains to be seen if the team's initial estimate of him returning after three weeks will be obtainable, although more information on his eventual activation from the disabled list should surface as his rehab progresses.
