Ryota Igarashi debuts with the Yankees

Ryota Igarashi made his debut for the Yankees Friday night against the Mets. He wasn’t particularly good as he allowed a run on one hit and two walks in the 9th innings. He did strikeout two batters and displayed pretty good stuff.

Igarashi needed 27 pitches to get through the inning. He threw a four-seamer, a two-seamer, and a split. His two-seamer had the most break to it and topped out at 97.2 mph.

Control was really his problem. After last night’s appearance it doesn’t seem very likely that he’ll be in the Bronx long, but if he can get his command under control he certainly has good stuff. Igarashi has a career 6.2 BB/9 though so that’s a longshot.

    That is what your pitching coach is for. With that guy's arm and stuff if the coach can't get him straight they should both be gone.
