Loaisiga allowed three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out four over 3.2 innings in Wednesday's win over the Mariners. He did not factor into the decision.
It wasn't nearly as sharp an outing as his MLB debut when he fired five scoreless innings, but he was done no favors by reliever Chasen Shreve who allowed two inherited runners to score to bring the final tally to three earned. The 23-year-old labored in this one, needing 84 pitches (51 strikes) just to get through 3.2 innings. With Masahiro Tanaka (hamstring) still on the shelf, Loaisiga figures to take at least a couple more turns through the rotation. He's lined up to take on the Phillies on Monday next time out.
Loaisiga (1-0) picked up the win in Friday's 5-0 victory over the Rays, allowing three hits and four walks over five scoreless innings while striking out six.
The rookie's control deserted him at times, not surprising for a 23-year-old making his big-league debut in pinstripes in Yankee Stadium, but Loaisiga was impressive when he was getting the ball over the plate, generating 17 swinging strikes out of 91 pitches (57 total strikes). Depending on how quickly Masahiro Tanaka (hamstring) gets healthy, Loaisiga could make two or more starts for New York, with his next outing set for Wednesday at home against the Mariners.
Loaisiga was called up as expected Friday and will start against the Rays.
Loaisiga began the year with High-A Tampa and has made just six starts above that level, but his performances this season have been impressive, with a 3.00 ERA and a 58:4 K:BB split between Tampa and Double-A Trenton. He'll take the hill opposite Nathan Eovaldi on Friday.
Loaisiga will be recalled from Double-A Trenton and start Friday's game against the Rays, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
It was originally reported that Loaisiga would make his big-league debut Thursday, but manager Aaron Boone clarified his comments during Tuesday's postgame interview, saying that the young pitcher would instead start Friday with Domingo German getting the nod Thursday.
With Masahiro Tanaka (hamstring) landing on the disabled list over the weekend, Loaisiga will be given the first opportunity to take his turn in the rotation for the time being. The 23-year-old compiled a combined 3.00 ERA and 58:4 K:BB across 10 starts (45 innings) split between High-A Tampa and Double-A Trenton prior to earning the promotion. Seeing as Loaisiga has pitched just 25 innings above High-A (and none at Triple-A), it may be wise to wait and see how he fares in his big-league debut before considering him as a streaming option.
