Yankees' Luis Gil: Rejoins Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Yankees recalled Gil from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Gil fills DJ LeMahieu's (hernia) active roster spot before the final game of the regular season. The righty has been getting relief work at Triple-A and should be available to get middle-innings outs Sunday and potentially beyond.

Yankees' Luis Gil: Prepping for postseason relief role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gil is working out of the bullpen at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in case he is needed in that role this week or in the postseason at the big-league level, Conor Foley of The Scranton Times-Tribune reports.

New York's top pitching prospect wasn't going to crack a potential postseason rotation, but he could be of service in relief if he can have success in that role at Triple-A. Through two relief appearances at Triple-A, Gil has one dominant outing where he struck out six in two scoreless innings and one outing where he gave up two runs and only got one out, so the results are mixed. He will be in competition for a starting spot with the big club in spring training.

Yankees' Luis Gil: Sent down after defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gil (1-1) was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Saturday's game against Cleveland. He was charged with the loss after giving up three runs (two earned) on three hits while tallying six strikeouts and four walks over 4.1 innings.

The 23-year-old struggled with his command and threw only 50 of 88 pitches in the zone, though he still induced 13 swinging strikes. Gil still has a strong 2.88 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 32:15 K:BB across 25 innings this season, but he'll head back to the minors since the Yankees need only four starters for the near future thanks to having two scheduled off days in the next nine days.

Yankees' Luis Gil: Pitches six innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gil tossed six innings, allowing five runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out eight in the win over the Twins on Monday. He did not factor into the game's decision.

The 23-year-old struggled with the long ball in this one, surrendering his first three of the season. He was much more effective with his strike zone command Monday than in previous outings, only walking one after issuing 14 walks in 19 innings prior. Gil now owns a 2.88 ERA with 32 strikeouts in 25 innings on the year. He's projected to start next at home this Saturday versus Cleveland.

Yankees' Luis Gil: Draws another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gil will start Monday's game against the Twins.

Gil initially looked like he would only be making a spot start when the Yankees recalled him from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre last week, but he'll end up making a second turn through the rotation after Jameson Taillon (ankle) was placed on the injured list a day after the rookie's outing. After opening his big-league career with 18 strikeouts in 15.2 scoreless innings in his first three starts with the Yankees, Gil took a step back in the Sept. 8 loss to the Blue Jays, lasting only 3.1 innings while allowing one run and issuing a whopping seven walks. Even in his prior three starts, Gil was still walking batters at an elevated 10.9 percent rate, so he'll still carry some risk as a season-long streamer or DFS play in a more favorable matchup versus Minnesota.

Yankees' Luis Gil: Control deserts him Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gil didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Blue Jays, giving up three runs on one hit and seven walks over 3.1 innings. He struck out six.

Recalled from Triple-A earlier in the day, Gil looked nothing like the pitcher who didn't allow a run in any of his first three big-league starts. He issued as many free passes Wednesday as he had in those three outings combined, tossing only 47 of 91 pitches for strikes before getting the hook, but the Yankees tied the game in the bottom of the fifth to help him escape his first loss. With Gerrit Cole (hamstring) not 100 percent, Gil's chances of sticking around in the rotation are a little better, but if he can't rein in the walks the Yankees will have to look to other options.

Yankees' Luis Gil: Officially recalled Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gil was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre ahead of Wednesday's start against the Blue Jays.

Gil was sent down in mid-August and posted a 2.81 ERA and 0.94 WHIP in 16 innings across his last three starts in the minors. The right-hander has tossed 15.2 scoreless innings in three major-league starts in 2021, and he'll be in contention to remain with the Yankees as a starter or high-leverage reliever if he performs well once again Wednesday.

Yankees' Luis Gil: On track to join rotation Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Gil will likely be called from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to start Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays in New York, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Nestor Cortes had been lined to start Wednesday's game, but Boone didn't suggest that Cortes nor any other member of the rotation would be replaced to make room for Gil. Instead, look for the Yankees to deploy a six-man rotation for at least this week, affording an additional day of rest for each member of the starting staff amid a heavy schedule of games. With another solid outing Wednesday, Gil could make a case for a more permanent stay with the big club, either as a starter or a high-leverage reliever. Over his first three big-league starts, Gil didn't allow a run over 15.2 innings while posting an 18:7 K:BB.

Yankees' Luis Gil: Won't start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gil won't start Monday's game against Atlanta, Sweeny Murti of Sports Radio 66 WFAN reports.

Gil was expected to start Sunday's series finale against the Twins before the game was postponed due to inclement weather. The Yankees will remain on turn in the rotation rather than recalling the right-hander, so Jordan Montgomery will start Monday, while Andrew Heaney will take the mound Tuesday.

Yankees' Luis Gil: Sunday's contest called off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gil and the Yankees won't play Sunday against the Twins after the game was postponed due to inclement weather.

Gil was slated to be recalled to start Sunday's series finale against Minnesota, but the game won't be played since Hurricane Henri is forecasted to hit the East Coast. It's not yet clear whether the right-hander will start Monday's series opener against Atlanta.

Yankees' Luis Gil: Likely to start for big club Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gil is likely to be recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to start Sunday against the Twins, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

The announcement from manager Aaron Boone comes as little surprise given that Gil has yet to give up a run in any of his three big-league starts. He was sent back to Triple-A after allowing three hits across 4.2 scoreless innings in his start against Boston on Tuesday, but because he was designated as the Yankees' 27th man for a doubleheader that day, he'll be eligible to rejoin the big-league roster before the minimum 10 days. If he does indeed take the ball Sunday, Jordan Montgomery's next start will be pushed back to Monday.

Yankees' Luis Gil: Sent down after strong start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gil was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Tuesday's doubleheader against the Red Sox. He started the second game and took a no-decision after allowing three hits with four strikeouts and four walks over 4.2 scoreless innings.

Gil had a chance to pick up his second big-league victory, but he was pulled during the fifth inning after loading the bases with two outs. He served as the 27th man for the twin bill, so he could rejoin the Yankees for another start quickly despite the demotion. However, New York's rotation has recently been fortified by the returns of Gerrit Cole and Jordan Montgomery from the COVID-19 injured list. Still, Gil has pitched well enough that he should receive another major-league chance before long.

Yankees' Luis Gil: Called up for twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Yankees recalled Gil from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre ahead of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Red Sox, designing him as their 27th man.

Jordan Montgomery (illness) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list and will start the front end of the doubleheader, while Gil picks up his third big-league start in the nightcap. The 23-year-old right-hander has been brilliant through his first two MLB starts, striking out 14 over 11 scoreless innings while permitting six hits and three walks. Though Gil has made a compelling case for a permanent stay in the rotation, the Yankees may not have room for him on the big-league roster beyond Tuesday now that Montgomery and Gerrit Cole have made it back from the COVID-19 IL. The Yankees are expected to get further reinforcements by late August or early September, when both Domingo German (shoulder) and Corey Kluber (shoulder) should return from the IL.

Yankees' Luis Gil: Likely starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gil is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to start one game of Tuesday's doubleheader versus Boston, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Gil made his second big-league start last Sunday and has yet to allow a run through 11 innings, but he was still sent back to Triple-A so the Yankees could take advantage of the roster spot. The 23-year-old seems likely to return to the minors after Tuesday's twin bill, especially with Gerrit Cole and Jordan Montgomery both poised to be activated from the injured list after testing positive for COVID-19.

August 8, 2021 06:28 PM
Yankees' Luis Gil: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gil was returned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.

Gil was dominant in his second major-league start Sunday, as he allowed two hits and two walks while striking out eight in five scoreless innings in the loss to the Mariners. He didn't factor into the decision, but he's now tossed 11 scoreless frames to begin his big-league career. The right-hander served as a replacement player for Sunday's contest after Anthony Rizzo tested positive for COVID-19, so he'll head back to the minors to open a spot on the active roster. However, given Gil's back-to-back strong outings, it wouldn't be surprising to see him rejoin the Yankees later this week or early next week.

Yankees' Luis Gil: Promoted for Sunday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gil was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to start Sunday's game against Seattle.

The 23-year-old delivered six shutout frames in his major-league debut Tuesday and will rejoin the rotation for the series finale versus the Mariners. Gil was recalled as a replacement player since the Yankees had another player test positive for COVID-19 (Anthony Rizzo), so the right-hander may be headed back to the minors after the contest, regardless of how he pitches Sunday. However, he'd be eligible for another promotion for his next potential turn through the rotation due to the rules regarding COVID-related moves.

August 4, 2021 05:32 PM
Yankees' Luis Gil: Confirmed to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yankees manager Aaron Boone confirmed that Gil will be recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to start Sunday against the Mariners, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

After throwing six shutout innings in his MLB debut Tuesday against the Orioles, Gil was optioned to Triple-A. Because he joined the roster as a replacement for a player placed on the COVID-19 injured list (Gerrit Cole), the rookie right-hander will be eligible to return to the Yankees before the usual 10-day minimum. If Gil can deliver another serviceable outing Sunday, he could have some staying power in a banged-up Yankees rotation that remains without Cole, Jordan Montgomery (COVID-19), Domingo German (shoulder), Corey Kluber (shoulder), Luis Severino (groin/elbow) and Michael King (finger).

Yankees' Luis Gil: Likely to return for weekend start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Yankees are expected to call up Gil from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to make a second turn through the rotation Sunday versus the Mariners, Jack Curry of YES Network reports.

Summoned from Triple-A on Tuesday in response to Gerrit Cole's (illness) move to the COVID-19 injured list, Gil turned in a memorable first MLB start, holding the Orioles scoreless while striking out six over six innings en route to picking up the win. Though the Yankees optioned him following the start, the transaction appears to be mostly for roster-management purposes. Under normal circumstances, Gil would have to remain in the minors for 10 days before being eligible to rejoin the Yankees, but because he was a replacement for a player on the COVID-19 IL, he can return to the 26-man active roster at any point.

Yankees' Luis Gil: Wins debut, returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gil (1-0) was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after earning the win Tuesday versus the Orioles. He gave up four hits with six strikeouts and a walk across six scoreless innings.

The 23-year-old was pressed into his major-league debut after Gerrit Cole tested positive for COVID-19, and the young righty delivered a fantastic performance against Baltimore. Gil pounded the zone and threw 62 of 88 pitches for strikes while allowing only four singles. The demotion is a tough break following the strong performance, but Gil could receive another big-league opportunity down the stretch after shining in his debut.

Yankees' Luis Gil: Named Tuesday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Yankees announced Gil has been recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and will start Tuesday's game against the Orioles, David Lennon of Newsday reports.

When he met with the media Monday, manager Aaron Boone said that he was leaning toward having Nestor Cortes make a spot start Tuesday in place of Gerrit Cole, who tested positive for COVID-19. After further consideration, the Yankees will instead turn to one of their top pitching prospects in Gil to fill the rotation opening. Since being promoted from Double-A Somerset to Triple-A in mid-June, Gil hasn't been overly successful over seven starts (5.83 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, 37:23 K:BB in 29.1 innings), so the 23-year-old right-hander may have a short leash in his MLB debut. How he fares against Baltimore will likely dictate whether or not he gets the ball again when Cole's next turn in the rotation comes up Sunday in Seattle.
