Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cortes was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Rays, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Cortes surrendered one run on two hits and three walks while striking out two over 3.1 frames in the nightcap. The Yankees will likely call up a fresh arm in his place, though a corresponding move has yet to be made.

Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Returns from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Yankees recalled Cortes from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday.

Cortes will be able to return to the big leagues just three days after being optioned since his promotion corresponds with first baseman Luke Voit's (abdomen) placement on the 10-day injured list. As was the case in his earlier stints with the Yankees, Cortes is expected to serve as a long man out of the bullpen. All but one of his nine appearances with the big club this season have consisted of multiple innings, with Cortes posting a 5.22 ERA and 31:6 K:BB across 29.1 frames.

Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Sent down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cortes was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Cortes was tagged for 11 earned runs over his last 15.1 innings coming off Saturday's contest in London, where he got lit up for five earned runs in three innings, prompting the Yankees to send him back to the RailRiders after the game. Per Hoch, Chance Adams is with the club as an extra player and can be added to the roster before Sunday's game.

Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Delivers as bulk reliever
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cortes (3-0) earned the win Tuesday versus the Blue Jays after giving up two runs on four hits across 4.1 innings. He had five strikeouts and zero walks.

Cortes followed opener Chad Green and fired four scoreless frames before faltering in the sixth with two runs allowed on three hits. It was still a solid performance for the 24-year-old, who has a 4.10 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 28:6 K:BB over 26.1 innings. According to Lindsey Adler of The Athletic, the Yankees may use an opener for Sunday's game against the Red Sox in London, and Cortes would be a logical candidate to help cover those innings.

Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cortes was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.

Cortes had only just been sent down Thursday but will return with Cameron Maybin (calf) heading to the injured list. Cortes owns a respectable 4.09 ERA in 22 innings of work for the Yankees this season, striking out 25.0 percent of opposing batters while walking 6.5 percent.

Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cortes was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Thursday's game against the Astros.

Cortes picked up the victory in Thursday's contest, but the Yankees have sent him to the minor leagues to make room for the return of Aaron Judge (oblique) from the injured list. Cortes owns a 4.09 ERA and 1.27 WHIP with 23 strikeouts over 22 innings this season in the big leagues.

Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Earns second win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cortes (2-0) allowed two earned runs on three hits and a walk while striking out one across three innings to earn the win Thursday against the Astros.

Cortes got plenty of run support to earn his second big-league win. He entered the contest following two scoreless innings from Chad Green and remained unscathed through 2.2 innings until surrendering back-to-back homers to Jake Marisnick and Alex Bregman to tarnish his outing. Still, Cortes has displayed decent skills, posting a 4.09 ERA and 1.27 WHIP with a 23:6 K:BB across 22 innings for the season.

Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Records first career win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cortes (1-0) earned the win Saturday versus the White Sox by allowing two runs on six hits over five innings. He struck out seven and walked none.

Cortes followed opener Chad Green and didn't allow an extra-base hit to the White Sox. The 24-year-old gave up three runs in both of his first two outings this season but has now fired 13 straight scoreless innings over his last four appearances.

June 13, 2019 01:40 PM
Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cortes was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday.

Kendrys Morales (calf) was sent to the injured list in a corresponding move, allowing Cortes to rejoin the Yankees just three days after being optioned to Triple-A. The right-hander has made five appearances out of the bullpen for the Yankees this season, compiling a 3.86 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 15:5 K:BB in 14 innings of work.

June 10, 2019 01:24 PM
Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Cortes spent just two days on the big-league roster, throwing three scoreless innings in his lone appearance. He'll make way for Masahiro Tanaka, who returns from the paternity list to start Monday against the Mets.

Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Pitches three scoreless innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cortes didn't factor into the decision as he struck out two through three scoreless innings of relief work against the Indians on Sunday.

Cortes entered the game after Chad Green delivered two scoreless innings as an opener and came through with three scoreless innings of his own. While he has worked as a starter in the minors this season, he has yet to make a start in the majors. Cortes has a 3.86 ERA through 14 innings.

Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cortes was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday.

Masahiro Tanaka landed on the paternity list, so Cortes was called up to add some short-term pitching depth. He started Wednesday's game at Triple-A, so he is probably not a candidate to start Sunday's game in Cleveland, although he could be asked to log a couple innings. Cortes gave up just one hit and struck out eight over six scoreless innings in his last start for the RailRiders.

Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cortes was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Saturday's win over the Red Sox.

Cortes rejoined the Yankees last week and fired five scoreless frames over two appearances but will nonetheless return to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre with CC Sabathia (knee) set to come off the injured list. The 24-year-old has a 4.91 ERA and 1.64 WHIP this season, but he looked much improved during his second stint in the majors.

Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Back in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Yankees recalled Cortes from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre ahead of Thursday's game against the Orioles.

Cortes was optioned to Triple-A two days earlier, but he'll be able to return from the minors before the minimum 10 days since CC Sabathia (knee) was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move. While Cortes likely won't be counted on for much high-leverage work while he's up with the big club, he could be asked to eat some innings Friday in Kansas City in what's expected to be a bullpen game for the Yankees.

May 21, 2019 02:20 PM
Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cortes was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

He has made two appearances for the big club this season, giving up three earned runs in each outing while striking out nine over a total of six frames. David Hale's contract was selected as a corresponding move.

May 19, 2019 05:12 PM
Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Goes four innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cortes gave up three runs on three hits and two walks while striking out six through four innings of relief work against the Yankees on Sunday.

Cortes came into the game in the second inning after opener Chad Green allowed two runs in 1.2 innings to begin the game. Cortes received 16 called strikes on his way to six strikeouts, but he also allowed three runs in only four innings of work. Cortes has a 9.00 ERA and a 9:2 K:BB through six innings.

Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Recalled Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cortes has been recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The Yankees put Miguel Andujar back on the 10-day injured list with a shoulder injury earlier Monday, so this is the corresponding roster move, per Lindsey Alder of The Athletic. Cortes has pitched in one big-league game this season, giving up four hits and three earned runs in a two-inning appearance.

May 11, 2019 10:08 PM
Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cortes was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The 24-year-old was called up to the Yankees on Wednesday, but it turns out it will be a short stay, as he's headed back to the RailRiders. Manager Aaron Boone previously indicated that Chad Green would be back in the mix for the big club soon, so he could be in line to take the roster spot.

May 9, 2019 05:28 PM
Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Heading to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cortes had his contract selected from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Wednesday's game, Conor Foley of The Scranton Times-Tribune reports.

Cortes has been with the RailRiders since early 2018 after he returned to the Yankees organization following his designation for assignment by the Orioles. The 24-year-old struggled in Baltimore as he allowed four runs on 10 hits over 4.2 innings during his only previous stint in the majors. Cortes has a 4.54 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 34:11 K:BB through 33.2 innings at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season.

Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Returns to Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cortes was returned to the Yankees on Friday after being designated for assignment by the Orioles earlier this week, Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Cortes was selected by the Orioles in the Rule 5 draft this offseason but is now returning to the Yankees organization. The 23-year-old gave up four runs on 10 hits and four walks over 4.2 innings with Baltimore, and will be sent to Double-A Scranton, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports..
