Yankees' Randy Vasquez: Solid in no-decision
Vasquez did not factor into the decision in a Yankees win during the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Red Sox, giving up two runs on three hits and a walk over 3.2 innings. He struck out three.
The 24-year-old blanked Boston for three innings before fading in the fourth, exiting after 60 pitches (40 strikes). Vasquez was working in a tandem with Jhony Brito, who wound up getting the win, and the two rookie right-handers combined for what was effectively a quality start -- two earned runs over six innings between them. The duo's effectiveness could encourage the Yankees to keep them together in a rotation slot, though neither one might be available when New York next needs a starter Saturday in Pittsburgh. Vasquez has a 2.67 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 25:14 K:BB through his first 30.1 big-league innings.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Randy Vasquez: Gets start for Game 1
Vasquez will start the first game of the Yankees' doubleheader Tuesday in Boston.
The doubleheader created a stretch of six games in five days for the Yankees, so Vasquez will at least temporarily step in to fill the void in the rotation. The Yankees will have a permanent spot available in the rotation after Luis Severino (oblique) was shut down for the season last week, with Vasquez and Jhony Brito representing the top options to replace Severino. Brito will presumably pick up a start later this week, and how he and Vasquez perform in their respective outings will likely determine which of the two ends up sticking around in a starting role when the rotation condenses to five men....

Yankees' Randy Vasquez: Candidate for starting role
Yankees manager Aaron Boone has mentioned Vasquez and Jhony Brito as possible replacements for Luis Severino (side) in the team's rotation, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Severino exited Friday's game against the Brewers with a left side injury, and he was placed on the 15-day IL on Saturday. That means New York now has a rotation spot to fill, and rookies Vasquez and Brito appear to be the leading candidates for the role. Vasquez has posted a solid 2.35 ERA and 1.16 WHIP over 26.2 innings this season, though his 22:13 K:BB isn't ideal. He's pitched twice in relief since being recalled from the minors Sept. 1 but was mostly used as a starter during earlier stints with the Yankees this season.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Randy Vasquez: Summoned to majors
Vasquez was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.
Vasquez is part of the Yankees' roster expansion as the calendar flips to September. He looks to be ticketed primarily for relief work but is a candidate for some spot starts down the stretch.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Randy Vasquez: Sent to Triple-A
The Yankees optioned Vasquez to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday.
New York is off Thursday and again on Monday, so a thin rotation will suffice for the time being. Vasquez started Wednesday's game against Atlanta and allowed two earned runs on two hits and three walks over 3.1 innings as the Yanks fell 2-0.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Randy Vasquez: Takes loss in short start
Vasquez (2-2) took the loss against Atlanta on Wednesday, allowing two runs on two hits and three walks while striking out three batters over 3.1 innings.
After working in bulk relief in his previous outing, Vasquez got a traditional start Wednesday. The right-hander served up a two-run homer to Eddie Rosario in the second inning, which was enough to saddle him with the loss on a day when New York was shut out for the second straight game. Aside from the long ball, Vasquez gave up only one other hit, but he also walked three batters and needed 60 pitches to get through 3.1 frames. The Yankees' rotation is extremely thin right now with Nestor Cortes (shoulder) out at least another month, Carlos Rodon (hamstring) not eligible to return from the IL until next Tuesday and Domingo German (personal) out for the season, so Vasquez could be needed to fill a spot in the rotation -- either in bulk relief or as a traditional starter -- for the immediate future....

Yankees' Randy Vasquez: Getting start in Atlanta
Vasquez is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against Atlanta at Truist Park.
In his return to the big leagues this past Friday, Vasquez was deployed in bulk relief behind opener Ian Hamilton and tossed 3.2 innings while striking out two and giving up two earned runs on three hits and one walk en route to claiming a win over the Marlins. Depending on how the first two games of the series in Atlanta shake out, the Yankees could end up deploying Vasquez behind an opener again, but in any case, the right-hander will be making another turn through the rotation. With both Frankie Montas (shoulder) and Domingo German (personal) likely out for the season and with Nestor Cortes (shoulder) recently joining Carlos Rodon (hamstring) on the injured list, Vasquez should have a clear path to an extended stay in the rotation....

Yankees' Randy Vasquez: Picks up win in bulk relief
Vasquez (2-1) registered the win against the Marlins on Friday, allowing two runs on three hits and a walk over 3.2 innings. He struck out two.
Ian Hamilton opened for the Yankees and had a spotless first inning before faltering in the second. The team then turned to Vasquez, who permitted a two-out RBI double in the fourth inning and a leadoff homer to Josh Bell in the sixth. Vasquez has managed a 1.89 ERA through his first 19 major-league innings, although that's come with a 12:8 K:BB. He figures to receive additional chances with Carlos Rodon (hamstring) and Nestor Cortes (shoulder) out and Luis Severino struggling.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Randy Vasquez: Recalled from Triple-A
The Yankees recalled Vasquez from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.
The 24-year-old right-hander is lined up to work in bulk relief behind opener Ian Hamilton on Friday at Miami. Vasquez should wind up operating as more of a traditional starter down the stretch after the Yankees had to place Nestor Cortes (shoulder) back on the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Randy Vasquez: Expected to start Friday
The Yankees are expected to recall Vasquez from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to start Friday in Miami, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
The team hasn't announced anything yet, but it has an opening in the rotation Friday and Vasquez is on turn. Vasquez holds a 1.17 ERA in three starts with the Yanks this season, although that's come with a 10:7 K:BB over 15.1 innings. If the 24-year-old pitches well Friday, he would seem to have a good shot to remain in the rotation at the expense of the struggling Luis Severino.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Randy Vasquez: Optioned to Triple-A
The Yankees optioned Vasquez to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday.
Vasquez was promoted Wednesday for a spot start against Baltimore, and he will now head back to the minors immediately following the game. The 24-year-old righty threw five scoreless innings, surrendering three hits and three walks while recording only one strikeout. Vasquez now holds an impressive 1.17 ERA through 15.1 frames, but his 5.11 ERA in Triple-A tells a very different story on how his 2023 has been so far.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Randy Vasquez: Starting Wednesday
Vasquez will be called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to start for the Yankees on Wednesday against the Orioles, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
Vasquez has pitched well in two outings for the Bronx Bombers this season, holding a 1.74 ERA and 9:4 K:BB over 10.1 innings. The right-hander has a less impressive 5.11 ERA in 13 starts with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, though he's struck out well over a batter per frame in the minors.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Randy Vasquez: Added as 27th man
The Yankees promoted Vasquez from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday to start Game 2 of their doubleheader with the White Sox.
Vasquez has made one other start for the Yankees this season -- a 4.2-inning performance against the Padres in which he allowed two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out six. He holds a 5.13 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in Triple-A this season and will almost certainly return to the minors immediately after Thursday's game.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Randy Vasquez: Back to minors
Vasquez was returned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the White Sox.
Vasquez earned the win after holding the White Sox to only two hits and a walk across 5.2 shutout innings in the second game of the twin bill. It was his second career start in the majors, and he's held his own by maintaining a 9:4 K:BB across 10.1 innings while surrendering only two earned runs. Vasquez will be stuck in the minors for the time being, but he's a candidate to enter the Yankees' rotation should there be any injuries.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Randy Vasquez: Yankees-White Sox postponed
Vasquez won't start Wednesday's game against the White Sox after the game was postponed due to poor air quality in New York on account of smoke.
The Yankees planned to call up Vasquez from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre for a spot start Wednesday, but wildfires in Canada have brought hazardous air to parts of the upper East Coast. The game will be made up as part of a twin bill Thursday, with Vasquez set to be called up to start Game 2. Luis Severino will get the ball for the Yankees in Game 1.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Randy Vasquez: Likely to start Wednesday
The Yankees are expected to call up Vasquez from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to start Wednesday's game versus the White Sox, Max Goodman of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
New York still isn't listing an official replacement in the rotation for the injured Nestor Cortes (shoulder) for Wednesday's contest, but Vasquez was spotted in the clubhouse Tuesday. He can't be promoted yet unless it's to replace an injured player, so the Yankees will likely officially place Cortes on the injured list prior to Wednesday's contest to facilitate Vasquez's call-up. Vasquez allowed two runs over 4.2 innings in his major-league debut against the Padres on May 26.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Randy Vasquez: Returns to Triple-A
Vasquez was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre by the Yankees on Friday.
Vasquez gave up two runs over 4.2 innings while striking out six and issuing three walks in his MLB debut in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Padres. With Domingo German due to return from his 10-game suspension during the upcoming week, the Yankees didn't need Vasquez to stick around to make any additional starts. The 24-year-old could still be the next man up to join the big club the next time the Yankees need an additional arm in the rotation.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Randy Vasquez: Handed loss in debut
Vasquez (0-1) allowed two runs on four hits and three walks over 4.2 innings Friday. He struck out six and took a loss against the Padres.
The 24-year-old worked through four shutout frames before coughing up a two-run homer to Juan Soto in the fifth. Vasquez primarily relied on a cutter/sinker combination while touching 96 mph on his fastball. He'll likely head back to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after this spot start, where he's registered a 4.85 ERA across 42.2 frames.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Randy Vasquez: Officially promoted
The Yankees recalled Vasquez from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.
The 24-year-old righty will make his major-league debut while starting Friday's game against the Padres. He holds a 4.85 ERA and 1.59 WHIP through 42.2 innings in the minors this season, but he has demonstrated an ability to rack up strikeouts at a plus rate. That being said, he shouldn't be viewed as a reliable fantasy option to begin his MLB career. Aaron Hicks was released Friday in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
