James Paxton is not good to go yet – so Yankees Chad Green begins

James Paxton is still out with left knee inflammation, so the Yankees will turn to Chad Green to start Sunday's final against the rays of the Bronx. They also have Chance Adams and Nestor Cortes Jr. to eat up some innings, but the task will be tough with Ray's right-handed Charlie Morton on the garden.

James Paxton is still out with left knee inflammation, so the Yankees will turn to Chad Green to start Sunday’s final against the rays of the Bronx.

They also have Chance Adams and Nestor Cortes Jr. to eat up some innings, but the task will be tough with Ray’s right-handed Charlie Morton on the garden.

Paxton is scheduled to throw another bullpen session Sunday in the hope that the discomfort he is still experiencing is no longer there.

“I” I like to get up on Sunday and not feel anything, “says Paxton, who is on the 10-day damaged list.” It has been less and less every time I have thrown a pen. I still felt a bit [Friday]. “

Manager Aaron Boone and Paxton both said they were encouraged by how the left felt when he showed up at Yankee Stadium before Saturday’s game.

” I was fine this morning, Paxton said. Paxton had hoped he would not feel any troublesome Friday, but that was not the case.

I know it’s there, Paxton said. . “I definitely hoped not to feel anything and I was aware of it a little.”

He expects the most important challenge on Sunday to be when he tries to throw into fast balls to the right-hand side because of the stress on the pitch put on the knee.

“If I can do it without pain [Sunday] then it will be tested,” Paxton said.

Although three hits and a couple of runs in Friday’s win could be said, Green is still happy with how he throws the ball since returning from a stint with Triple-A Scranton / Wilkes-Barre.

“I actually felt that my high speed was as good as it has been throughout the year [on Friday],” said Green, who gave up the two runs to the rays on Friday, but was bailed out when the Yankees rallied for the win at the bottom of ninth. “I just missed one or two places.”

Green had a 1

6.43 ERA in their first 10 appearances this season before the Yankees sent him to minors to work on their mechanics. He was overwhelming in his first outing after returning to the Majors.


Clint Frazier did not start against left-handed Blake Snell, but entered as a pinch-hitter in seventh and went carelessly into two balls to release 6-for-37 after returning from a reinforced ankle – but Boone said he is convinced that the injury is not the cause of Frazier’s latest picture on the plate.

“He probably lacks his pitch a little bit,” Boone said. before Saturday’s 2-1, 11-inning loss to the rays. “He hasn’t gone much, but he has a good job of steering the strike zone and coming in deep reach.”

The question is what Frazier has done when it comes.

“He hasn’t won the 3-2 bill or when he gets his pitch, where he hurt for a few weeks, now he’s fouling that tones or misses that pitch, Boone says.” I think it’s small and subtle. He is always capable of turning it straight, as he controls the strike zone for a young player. “

As for the ankle that sidelined him earlier this month, Boone said:” I think he is good. “


Aaron Hicks had a pair of singles – one from each side of the plate – for his first two hits of the season in his third match back from a backback injury that had sidelined him since the spring training.
