  • Yankees' Luis Gil: Moves to 60-day IL

    Gil (elbow) was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and placed on the 60-day injured list Sunday.

    The 24-year-old was already on the injured list with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre since undergoing Tommy John surgery in May, and the Yankees called him up to move him to the 60-day IL and free up a spot on the 40-man roster. Gil won't return this year and will also be sidelined for at minimum the first half of the 2023 campaign.

  • Yankees' Luis Gil: Requires Tommy John surgery

    Gil will undergo Tommy John surgery Tuesday, Laura Albanese of Newsday reports.

    Gil exited his start at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday with an elbow injury, and the issue is significant enough to require surgery. Prior to the 23-year-old's injury, he had posted a 7.89 ERA, 31:15 K:BB and 1.70 WHIP in 21.2 innings over six starts with the Triple-A club this year. The right-hander will be sidelined for the remainder of the 2022 season and should miss a significant portion of the 2023 campaign.

  • Yankees' Luis Gil: Contending with major injury

    Manager Aaron Boone said Gil (elbow) is dealing with a "significant" injury, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

    The right-hander was removed from Wednesday's start with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre with an apparent elbow injury, and he'll apparently be sidelined for the foreseeable future. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but Gil's availability for the rest of the season is now in queston.

  • Yankees' Luis Gil: Exits with arm injury

    Gil was removed from his start with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday after gesturing to his right elbow, Conor Foley of The Scranton Times-Tribune reports.

    The 24-year-old was making his first start back with the RailRiders after a brief stint with the Yankees, but his return outing was cut short by the injury. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but any arm issue is a worrying sign for Gil, who's struggled to a 9.53 ERA at Triple-A this year.

  • Yankees' Luis Gil: Called up ahead of start

    Gil was recalled as expected ahead of his scheduled start Thursday against the White Sox.

    Gil made six major-league starts in his debut season last year, cruising to a 3.07 ERA despite a 14.7 percent walk rate, as his 29.5 percent strikeout rate proved to be enough to overcome his poor control. Things haven't gone his way through five starts for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season, as he owns a 9.53 ERA and has walked a nearly identical 14.5 percent of opposing batters, but the Yankees evidently have enough faith to give him another shot.

  • Yankees' Luis Gil: Optioned to Triple-A

    Gil was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.

    Gil served as a spot starter Thursday against the White Sox but settled for a no-decision after allowing four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five in four innings. He has a 9.53 ERA and 1.76 WHIP in 17 innings over five minor-league starts this year and will likely need to generate better results if he hopes to gain a full-time role with the major-league club at some point in 2022.

  • Yankees' Luis Gil: Tosses four innings in 2022 debut

    Gil allowed four runs on five hits and two walks while striking five over four innings Thursday against the White. He did not factor in the decision.

    The right-hander was called up from Triple-A earlier in the day to make a spot start with the Yankees in the midst of a stretch of six games over five days. He flashed some good stuff by inducing 17 swinging strikes and racking up five punchouts, but a three-run second inning was largely to blame for an overall ineffective final line. Gil will likely head back to the minors, where he has struggled with a 9.53 ERA and 1.76 WHIP across 17 innings this season.

  • Yankees' Luis Gil: Getting spot start with big club

    The Yankees will promote Gil from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to start Thursday's game against the White Sox in Chicago, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    Gil is likely just in line for one start with the Yankees, who are forced to add a temporarily sixth starter to the mix after last Sunday's doubleheader with the Rangers created a stretch of six games in five days. The 23-year-old Gil impressed with a 3.07 ERA and 38 strikeouts over 29.1 innings in six starts with the big club in 2021, but he hasn't come close to replicating that success at Triple-A this season. Through his 17 innings at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Gil has given up 19 runs (18 earned) on 18 hits and 12 walks while striking out 25.

  • Yankees' Luis Gil: Fans nine in Triple-A start

    Gil tossed five innings in a start for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday, allowing two runs on three hits and no walks while striking out nine.

    The right-hander finally had a solid outing, going five innings for the first time this season and registering a campaign-best nine punchouts. It's otherwise been a struggle for Gil at Triple-A this season, as he has registered a 9.53 ERA and 1.76 WHIP over five starts. The 23-year-old is considered one of the Yankees' top pitching prospects after posting a 3.07 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 38:19 K:BB across 29.1 innings in his first big-league stint in 2021.

  • Yankees' Luis Gil: Dispatched to Triple-A

    The Yankees optioned Gil to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday.

    New York is expected to open the season with a traditional five-man rotation, and with Nestor Cortes having a leg up on that role based on his strong finish to the 2021 campaign, Gil was facing an uphill battle to crack the Yankees' Opening Day roster. Gil and Deivi Garcia have both had positive moments when given trials in the big-league rotation over the past couple of seasons, but both will have to bide their time at Triple-A and wait for an injury to one of the Yankees' five starters before getting another opportunity in the majors.

  • Yankees' Luis Gil: Rejoins Yankees

    The Yankees recalled Gil from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    Gil fills DJ LeMahieu's (hernia) active roster spot before the final game of the regular season. The righty has been getting relief work at Triple-A and should be available to get middle-innings outs Sunday and potentially beyond.

  • Yankees' Luis Gil: Prepping for postseason relief role

    Gil is working out of the bullpen at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in case he is needed in that role this week or in the postseason at the big-league level, Conor Foley of The Scranton Times-Tribune reports.

    New York's top pitching prospect wasn't going to crack a potential postseason rotation, but he could be of service in relief if he can have success in that role at Triple-A. Through two relief appearances at Triple-A, Gil has one dominant outing where he struck out six in two scoreless innings and one outing where he gave up two runs and only got one out, so the results are mixed. He will be in competition for a starting spot with the big club in spring training.

  • Yankees' Luis Gil: Sent down after defeat

    Gil (1-1) was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Saturday's game against Cleveland. He was charged with the loss after giving up three runs (two earned) on three hits while tallying six strikeouts and four walks over 4.1 innings.

    The 23-year-old struggled with his command and threw only 50 of 88 pitches in the zone, though he still induced 13 swinging strikes. Gil still has a strong 2.88 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 32:15 K:BB across 25 innings this season, but he'll head back to the minors since the Yankees need only four starters for the near future thanks to having two scheduled off days in the next nine days.

  • Yankees' Luis Gil: Pitches six innings

    Gil tossed six innings, allowing five runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out eight in the win over the Twins on Monday. He did not factor into the game's decision.

    The 23-year-old struggled with the long ball in this one, surrendering his first three of the season. He was much more effective with his strike zone command Monday than in previous outings, only walking one after issuing 14 walks in 19 innings prior. Gil now owns a 2.88 ERA with 32 strikeouts in 25 innings on the year. He's projected to start next at home this Saturday versus Cleveland.

  • Yankees' Luis Gil: Draws another start

    Gil will start Monday's game against the Twins.

    Gil initially looked like he would only be making a spot start when the Yankees recalled him from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre last week, but he'll end up making a second turn through the rotation after Jameson Taillon (ankle) was placed on the injured list a day after the rookie's outing. After opening his big-league career with 18 strikeouts in 15.2 scoreless innings in his first three starts with the Yankees, Gil took a step back in the Sept. 8 loss to the Blue Jays, lasting only 3.1 innings while allowing one run and issuing a whopping seven walks. Even in his prior three starts, Gil was still walking batters at an elevated 10.9 percent rate, so he'll still carry some risk as a season-long streamer or DFS play in a more favorable matchup versus Minnesota.

  • Yankees' Luis Gil: Control deserts him Wednesday

    Gil didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Blue Jays, giving up three runs on one hit and seven walks over 3.1 innings. He struck out six.

    Recalled from Triple-A earlier in the day, Gil looked nothing like the pitcher who didn't allow a run in any of his first three big-league starts. He issued as many free passes Wednesday as he had in those three outings combined, tossing only 47 of 91 pitches for strikes before getting the hook, but the Yankees tied the game in the bottom of the fifth to help him escape his first loss. With Gerrit Cole (hamstring) not 100 percent, Gil's chances of sticking around in the rotation are a little better, but if he can't rein in the walks the Yankees will have to look to other options.
