Some fans of the New York Yankees may be annoyed by Brian Cashman’s 5-7 start, but so far, a cash-saving deal he made in the offseason looks good.
Adam Ottavino, 35, has struggled this season. Kasman traded the Boston Red Sox with right-handed minor league Frank German on January 25. , In exchange for a player who was later nominated.
At the beginning of the season, Ottavino had the opportunity to stay closer with the team, but Matt Barnes was not allowed to participate in 7 games this season and won 1-0 with 2 losses. Since returning to the team, he has basically taken over the job. He contracted the coronavirus in late March.
However, Boston hopes that Ottavino can still be a key late rescuer, but the early results are worrying.
Ottavino’s Yankees tenure ended and the results were disheartening. He had already scored four scoring runs and seven hits in 3²/₃ innings. Ottavino (1-1, 9.82 ERA) has allowed three of the five appearances and has walked five times and shot three-pointers.
The Red Sox’s impressive nine-game winning streak was stopped in Thursday’s 4-3 road loss against the Minnesota Twins. Ottavino was the culprit and suffered the loss.
He entered the game in the ninth tournament and quickly gave up Luis Arraez’s singles and hit Jorge Polanco to lead the situation, and then returned the fans who won the game. Max Kepler.
Ottavino signed a three-year, $27 million contract with the Yankees in 2019. He did well in the first year and became a bomber backup when he won 6-5 with a 1.90 ERA. But he struggled in September of that season and was terrified of Astros in ALCS.
The 2020 season was a nightmare for right-handers, who ended the game with a 5.89 ERA in 24 games-although a large part of it was due to a bad game against the Buffalo Blue Jays.
