Yankees' Luis Cessa: Set for long-relief role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Aaron Boone announced Saturday that Cessa will begin the season out of the bullpen in a long-relief role, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Boone did mention the possibility of utilizing the opener strategy April 1 against the Tigers, and Cessa could be used as the primary pitcher should they go that route. The 26-year-old was in the mix for a rotation spot with Luis Severino (shoulder) and CC Sabathia (knee, chest, suspension) sidelined for the beginning of the season, but Domingo German and Jonathan Loaisiga will be called upon instead. Cessa showcased himself near perfectly in spring training with a 0.53 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 18:1 K:BB through 17 innings, but will nonetheless start the season in the bullpen.

Yankees' Luis Cessa: Working in relief Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cessa will work in relief Tuesday with the Yankees using Chad Green as an opener in his place against the Rays, according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com.

Cessa was scheduled to start Tuesday, but Green will get the nod instead as the Yankees give the opener a shot against the team that made the role famous. Cessa should still get in as many innings as needed Tuesday, and remains on track to break camp with a spot in the Yankees' rotation.

Yankees' Luis Cessa: Leading fifth starter candidate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cessa is the leading candidate to open the year as the Yankees' fifth starter, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.

Domingo German and Jonathan Loaisiga are more exciting for fantasy purposes, but it is Cessa who has apparently been the most impressive so far in this competition with Luis Severino (shoulder) set to open the year on the injured list. Cessa has a 0.69 ERA and 13 strikeouts in 13 innings this spring, and tossed four scoreless innings Thursday against the Blue Jays.

Yankees' Luis Cessa: Likely destined for relief duty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cessa could spend much of the 2019 season in the bullpen, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Cessa primarily developed as a starter in the Yankees' farm system, but he's been used as both a starter and a reliever in the majors. With numerous veteran options ahead of him in the rotation pecking order, it seems like a forgone conclusion that Cessa will spend more time relieving than starting, though injuries certainly can change that outlook. The right-hander produced a 6.50 ERA and a 6.5 K/9 in five starts last season (18 innings), as opposed to a 4.39 ERA and an 8.8 K/9 in 26.2 relief innings.

Yankees' Luis Cessa: Fails to finish first inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cessa (1-4) took the loss against the Red Sox on Sunday, allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits while recording only one out. He did not record a strikeout or walk a batter

Cessa threw only 14 pitches to six batters as the Red Sox wasted little time showcasing their aggressiveness. The 26-year-old was unlikely to have an elongated outing regardless as the Yankees opted to use six relievers to get through the blowout, but it's a disappointing performance nonetheless. Cessa finishes the regular season with a 5.24 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 39:13 K:BB over 44.2 major-league innings.
