Padres acquired RHP Bryan Mitchell from the Yankees in the Chase Headley trade.
While Chase Headley is now back in San Diego, Mitchell is the focus of the deal for the club. The 26-year-old owns an underwhelming 4.94 ERA and 64/44 K/BB ratio over 98 1/3 innings in the majors, but the Padres believe in his potential. Getting out of Yankee Stadium and the AL East should help. It's believed that the Padres will give him a chance to start. Tue, Dec 12, 2017 01:35:00 PM

Date:

Bryan Mitchell, called up before the game, pitched four scoreless innings in middle relief Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

That's the good news. The bad news is that, because he threw 67 pitches, he's been rendered useless for the next two days at least. As a result, the Yankees will probably send him right back down.

Yankees recalled RHP Bryan Mitchell from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Mitchell holds a 4.29 ERA over 13 appearances -- one start -- for the Bombers this season. He'll work in long relief.

Yankees optioned RHP Bryan Mitchell to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Mitchell pitched well in a spot start Monday night against the Twins, allowing just two runs -- one earned -- over five innings in a no-decision. The 26-year-old right-hander should get another try soon.

Bryan Mitchell allowed two runs -- one earned -- over five innings Monday in a no-decision versus the Twins.

Minnesota rallied for two runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to win the game 4-2. Mitchell did his part in what was his start at the major league level this season, scattering six hits and two walks. He struck out two. If the 26-year-old right-hander gets another turn, it'll come this weekend on the road against the Mariners.

Bryan Mitchell will start Monday against the Twins.

Mitchell was originally expected to start Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Red Sox, but he was eventually pushed back to Monday. This will be his first start in the majors this season. The 26-year-old has made 12 relief appearances with the Yankees this season, but has exclusively pitched as a starter in Triple-A. He can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Yankees recalled RHP Bryan Mitchell from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

He's officially the 26th man for Sunday's doubleheader against the Red Sox. Mitchell has posted a 5.06 ERA and 10/7 K/BB ratio over 16 innings with the Yankees this season.

Yankees optioned RHP Bryan Mitchell to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

It makes sense after Mitchell threw 36 pitches (and played first base) in Sunday's extra-inning loss to the Orioles. Luis Cessa has replaced him in the Yankees' bullpen.

Bryan Mitchell pitched a scoreless ninth, played first base in the 10th and gave up three runs to take a loss in the 11th Sunday against the Orioles.

It was some very curious managing from Joe Girardi, who decided it made the most sense to go to Aroldis Chapman to try to win the game in the 10th but still to keep Mitchell available for the 11th because his pen was going to be short-handed. It almost worked out, but the Yankees couldn't score after getting two on with none out in the bottom of the 10th. Mitchell then returned to the mound after a 40-minute break from pitching and gave up the three runs to take the loss.

Bryan Mitchell surrendered three runs in three-plus innings Sunday versus the Rays.

This wasn't quite what Mitchell was hoping for with a rotation spot very much on the line. The Yankees could have their rotation candidates pitch once more before making any final decisions, but they'd like to have a better idea about their fourth and fifth starters by this point. Mitchell has a 4.57 ERA this spring, but his K/BB ratio is a fine 22/5 in 21 2/3 innings. We think he's a weaker fantasy sleeper than his competition, most notably Luis Severino and Adam Warren.

Bryan Mitchell allowed one run over three innings and struck out five in relief Thursday against the Blue Jays.

Mitchell had a better day than Luis Cessa, which would seem to help his rotation chances. He's allowed six runs in 14 1/3 innings for the spring. If the season started tomorrow, we imagine the Yankees would pick Mitchell and Luis Severino for their two rotation vacancies.
