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.
Jul 17 - 8:32 AM

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.

May 31 - 2:53 PM

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

Mitchell has put up a 6.35 ERA across nine relief appearances with the big club this season. He'll work in the middle innings.

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.
May 1 - 3:16 PM

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.
Apr 30 - 6:05 PM

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.
Mar 26 - 4:55 PM

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.
Mar 16 - 4:41 PM

Bryan Mitchell yielded four runs in 2 1/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Pirates.

Jordy Mercer's solo homer was one of six hits allowed by Mitchell, who had thrown five scoreless innings to start this spring. This is a setback for his rotation hopes, but one bad day won't ruin his chances.
Mar 6 - 4:33 PM

Bryan Mitchell tossed three scoreless innings with a pair of strikeouts in Wednesday's Grapefruit League victory over the Braves.

Very nice work by Mitchell. He did walk one on the evening, but the Braves were unable to ding him for a hit. He has tossed five combined scoreless innings in his two spring outings to date. The 25-year-old right-hander has a good chance to land a rotation spot, especially if he keeps throwing like this. Last season, he posted a 3.24 ERA in five starts (25 innings).
Mar 1 - 9:34 PM

Bryan Mitchell was perfect for two innings Friday in the Yankees' 9-4 victory over the Phillies.

Mitchell, who is working on a splitter this spring, is a leading candidate to claim one of the two vacancies in the Yankees' rotation. We don't find him very interesting for fantasy purposes, but if the splitter comes along and gets him more strikeouts, perhaps he could surprise.
