Yankees claim RHP Igarashi

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on May 29, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Here’s the announcement from the Yankees…

The Yankees have acquired RHP Ryota Igarashi off waivers from the Toronto Blue Jays.

Igarashi, who turned 33 on Monday, spent spring training with the Pittsburgh Pirates before being acquired by Toronto on March 30. He began the season with Triple-A Las Vegas, going 1-1 with four saves, a 1.29 ERA (21.0IP, 3ER) and a .139 (10-for-72) opponents batting average and had his contract purchased by the Major League team on 5/25. He made two relief appearances for the Blue Jays, allowing 4ER in 1.0IP, before he was designated for assignment on 5/27.

Originally selected in the second round of the 1998 Nippon Professional Baseball Draft, Igarashi spent 10 seasons with the Tokyo Yakult Swallows of the Japanese Central League. He signed with the Mets as a free agent on December 17, 2009, and in two seasons with New York-NL (2010-11), combined to go 5-2 with a 5.74 ERA (69.0IP, 44ER) in 79 relief appearances.

He will report to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and is anticipated to arrive in time for tonight’s game. To make room on the 40-man roster, the Yankees transferred RHP Brad Meyers (right labrum strain) to the 60-day disabled list.

    GB-

    This was my early morning, irritated take on Phil Hughes.

    Quote from him:

    “When you get in those jams you just want to go harder and harder and harder and speed things up, and that’s never the right way to go,” Hughes said. “You know that, but when you’re out there in the moment, it’s tough to kind of slow yourself down and throw some breaking balls for strikes and changeups for strikes and things like that. There were probably a few opportunities when I could have really slowed myself down in that first inning, but instead, I was trying to squeeze the leather off the ball and throw a fastball. That’s not a good way to go.”

    Phil-
    Why is it so difficult to throw a curveball or a changeup once in a while when your fastball is being hit in the 1st inning?-single-out on a terrific catch by Grandy-single-single-double-single- then 2 outs on groundouts.

    If you had been pitching in YS, you would have given up 3 more homers or extra base hits, to all those balls hit to deep right field.

    What makes you think you can blow away hitters with 93 to 94mph fastballs up in the zone?

    Just when I thought you were making progress, your mental approach has taken two steps back-if it’s there at all?

    Sorry to be so harsh, but when Weaver leaves the game and the Angels gift wrap you 3, 1st inning runs, you have to pitch smart.

    GB-

    It’s comments like these and those other ones made after some previous dreadful appearances that make me wonder. Lack of pitching smarts and/or stubborness or both?

    Phil-
    Watch Andy and his approach to hitters and you’ll learn something!

    Enough “trolling” on Phil.

  2. Dean Winters May 29th, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    True but the stats back it up when it comes to Phil.

  3. 86w183 May 29th, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    Another dumpster dive for Cashman….. hope it worx, but hard to see how

  4. luis May 29th, 2012 at 3:42 pm

    YT,

    You never troll. You made very good and very understandable observations. But he is not alone there. I didn’t see Hughes changing pitches to Martin. I think he is as much to blame as Hughes.

  5. Villa Nova-Ya May 29th, 2012 at 3:44 pm

    I haven’t posted in a while. But the previous post by Chad on Pettitte’s focus was compelling enough to make me want to contribute to any discussion. This is what sets Pettitte (and pitchers like him) apart; I sincerely hope that the younger pitchers on this staff pay attention. I hope that at some point Andy Pettitte is some kind of coach for the Yankees pitching staff – in whatever capacity they can agree upon.

    I was disappointed in Hughes’ game last night. Not because he lost. But because after all this time, he is still a work in progress, he is still learning how to pitch. I had hoped by this time, and with all that he’d been through, the last thing you’d hear from him is just about everything he said after last night’s start. I still think he can be good. For some reason, I thought he’d be one of the guys who pick it up more quickly.

    Maybe there are some things that can’t really be taught.

  6. luis May 29th, 2012 at 3:46 pm

    Did you know that most relievers are failed SP? Did you know that most good SP are lights out relievers?…Value wise, he has more upside in the rotation than in the BP. He has shown progress with his secondary stuff and has pitched consistently better. You have to run the course. If he fails, then you move him to the BP.

  7. Rich in NJ May 29th, 2012 at 3:47 pm

    “True but the stats back it up when it comes to Phil.”

    As they would if CC, Price, Verlander, or any middle of the road starter was put in the pen. Starters have far better stuff than most relievers. That’s why they are starters. That Kay doesn’t know that is yet one more reason why it’s bizarre that he makes a living talking about baseball.

  8. Yankee Trader May 29th, 2012 at 3:48 pm

    Villa-

    In total agreement. Many of us early this morning felt the same way.

    Knowledge is knowing tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in fruit salad.

    So maybe, in Hughes case, there are things that really can’t be taught.

  9. Villa Nova-Ya May 29th, 2012 at 3:48 pm

    86w183

    I get the feeling this guy is just minor league filler. Manny B is in Tampa and now this new injury. They probably just need arms and do not want to rush the lower level guys up.

  10. Rich in NJ May 29th, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    Pettitte is a far different pitcher than he was when he was young, in large part because his actual stuff has diminished, and probably because someone helped teach him how to pitch.

    There is no reason why Hughes and Nova can’t learn that as well.

  11. blake May 29th, 2012 at 3:50 pm

  13. Villa Nova-Ya May 29th, 2012 at 3:51 pm

    Yankee Trader -

    It saddens me, in a way. He seems awfully stubborn. He had success in his last four starts doing something totally different than it appeared he did last night. Or if not totally different, different enough to make a difference (ouch).

    I don’t think you can give up on the guy, but I sure hope he is open to some coaching by a really grizzled veteran, who was always able to gut out a start.

  14. GreenBeret7 May 29th, 2012 at 3:51 pm

    From a board friend: HOPE Week has been expanded to include the cities that are home to Yankee Farm Teams.

    Jon Lane ?@JonLaneNYC
    Five #Yankees minor league affiliates to participate in HOPE Week, starting with Class-A Tampa June 4-8. Awesome news

  15. luis May 29th, 2012 at 3:52 pm

    Hi Villa,

    Good to see you around. Your good posts are missed. I have always thought that “moxie” can’t be taught. Pettitte has plenty of it, Nova has plenty of it. Phil has some, but not as much as those guys. Remember as well that Hughes development hasn’t been linear, to the point that he has less innings than both Nova and Phelps up to this moment. If he hasn’t been injured and sent to the BP, his secondary offerings would be much better by now. They aren’t, but that’s not entirely his fault.

  16. Villa Nova-Ya May 29th, 2012 at 3:52 pm

    Hi blake.

    Rich in NJ – No reason if Hughes is open to it; I hope he is. No real reason to think he is not.

    Perhaps Pettitte’s comments are not random…

  17. blake May 29th, 2012 at 3:52 pm

    HOPE week is maybe the best thing the Yankees do all year.

    I don’t agree with moving Hughes to the pen. He would rely solely on his fastball, which by both velocity and location aren’t coiducive to getting quick outs, keeping the ball in the infield, or strikeouts. Pretty impressed with the Angels Jordan Walden last night.

    ———————————–

    You have a point but we know Hughes can be an asset in the pen. I’m not saying he should go there today tomorrow or even after his next start but at some point I think it should at least be considered.

  21. Hassey May 29th, 2012 at 3:58 pm

    After my prediction yesterday that the Yankees would win if they score 3-4 runs, I believe I will forego any prediction for today. Please do not be too disappointed.

    ===================================

    Trader,

    On short stints, i am sure that he would excel. Especially if he keeps the new CU. I just think that he has more value in the rotation. He needs coaching and a good guide behind the plate, i am not so sure that he has them though.

    Walden was impressive, high 90′s cheese and killer slider and CU, that he can both throw for strikes. I wonder why he isn’t being groomed for the rotation, he has plenty of stuff for that. Also it seems that he has lots of pichability.

    It certainly would be nice to get back the speed of Gardner and Nunez on the team.

    After Tex led off with a single in the top of the 9th last night, maybe Nunez pinch running, would have been able to steal and eventually score that one run, to win the game?

  27. GreenBeret7 May 29th, 2012 at 4:04 pm

    Throwing upwards off 100 MPH will almost always make other pitches look better, since they always have to be geared up for that blow torch heater. If the Yanks had pitchers with that velocity, they’d be drooled over, too.

  28. Hassey May 29th, 2012 at 4:04 pm

    Gardner and Nunez? Isn’t that a law firm with a small billboard on the Grand Concourse?

    Yanks have two that are close to that, but, Burawa is still on the DL in Trenton and the best smoke thrower has little control of it (Kahnle) in Tampa.

    He’s baseball’s Rona Barrett. The one concern I have is, when Kay starts slamming the same thing and takes a stand on it concerning the Yankees, he’s usually floating how the wind is blowing in the FO. That seems to run counter to Cashman’s rhetoric and practice of late on Hughes, but I’ve learned not to trust any of that. It’s not like Kay to go trashing a Yankee on management’s good side. Beware.

  39. GreenBeret7 May 29th, 2012 at 4:21 pm

    Henrich wore number 15 for all but the first 2 years. Vic Racshi is likely the best unless you want Mickey Rivers. Murcer also wore it.

    Hughes/Martin/Rothschild’s game strategy should have been to call more changeups early in the game. Angels were clearly sitting fastball, and without the command/late movement on that pitch, Hughes didn’t have much of a chance. I believe Hughes initially threw something like 18 FB’s to 3 curveballs and didn’t throw a changeup until Kendrick on something like the 25th pitch. Not sure whose fault that is, but I and others here were questioning why Hughes wasn’t throwing the changeup long before Flaherty was. It was painfully obvious that Hughes was going to get hit hard if he kept to the same pitching pattern. Also in his previous start vs. KC he threw 20 changeups and no cutters vs. 10 changeups and two too many cutters.

    Hi Villa, nice to see you back. Andy is no doubt a force of nature. Gotten to any milb games?

    Moose had some great games for us in the 2001 and 2003 WS, and I will never forget the three brilliant innings he pitched in Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS, and the regular season Moose-Pedro matchups were classics–just great, great pitching.

    I’ll repeat what I predicted yesterday, the Yanks will be lucky to win ONE game and I think that chance is against Santana.

    Walden was failing at closing, but mows us down in relief.

    Don’t expect Andy to shut down Angels. JMO

    Angels will come back on us like no other team.

    Even the guys who don’t have a good avg. on the Angels kill us from time to time. They just have had our number for a while now.

    Saying that, I hope to he- l l I’m wrong.

  71. Yankee Trader May 29th, 2012 at 4:44 pm

    austinmac-

    With a rich TV contract, playing to a full house nightly, and an opening day payroll, per Cot’s of $120,836,000, they can easily add more payroll.

  72. 4 NYY May 29th, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    14 ? How about ” Fonzie” of the Mets ?

  73. 86w183 May 29th, 2012 at 4:48 pm

    Yeah, Yanks already spending $ 89 M more than Texas in payroll — and I know about Darvish and the posting fee — no comparison.

    While Yaks are trying to get under $ 189, I expect EVERY MLB team to be under the cap in 2014.

  74. Shame Spencer May 29th, 2012 at 4:48 pm

    “It was painfully obvious that Hughes was going to get hit hard if he kept to the same pitching pattern. ”

    To everyone but Hughes, apparently!

    The part I don’t get fem, is how we have heard for literally 3 seasons now about how important it is for Hughes to utilize his secondary pitches but here we are and very little has changed.

    It’s a little frustrating.

    I think I find it more frustrating that I’d be categorized as impatient for believing he should already know this stuff after 5 seasons of big league ball.

  75. Yankee Trader May 29th, 2012 at 4:48 pm

    Does the nickname “The Big Cat” jog your memory? At least he was #14 as a Brave, and I believe as an Expo where he first started.

  76. luis May 29th, 2012 at 4:50 pm

    Trader,

    I am going to check it out, but i think he wore number 41. Maybe i’ll tell you a little story about Galarraga and me.

  77. 86w183 May 29th, 2012 at 4:52 pm

    I assume you are talking about Andres “The Big Cat” Gallarraga?

    I believe the nickname came from his surprisingly nimble, cat-like reflexes defensively at first base despite being such a large man.

  78. luis May 29th, 2012 at 4:53 pm

    Trader,

    Yes, he wore both numbers 14 and 41. Even number 12 at some point. I never thought about him, because he always wore the numbers 41 for Leones del Caracas and in little league where i played against him

    shame, but he has been using the changeup much more than ever before. And when he has had a feel for it, it has been a pretty good pitch for him. He is throwing it over 11% of the time, which is a big improvement from last year @ slightly more than half that much. So, if he has FB command, gets ahead and also throws the change along with the CB, then he is at least progressing. CB has to get better though, and cutter abandoned. I’m not giving up on him.

    Looking at Pettitte’s regular season stats vs Angels Batters, with Vernon Wells out, if he can limit any damage Aybar may cause, he definitely can lead the Yankees to victory, if the offense helps him out.

    I assume you are talking about Andres “The Big Cat” Gallarraga?

    I believe the nickname came from his surprisingly nimble, cat-like reflexes defensively at first base despite being such a large man.

    ======================================

    Actually it was because his looks where very deceiving. He looked like a fatso with glasses, but then he turned in to this cat like player on first base.

    “Henrich wore number 15 for all but the first 2 years. Vic Racshi is likely the best unless you want Mickey Rivers. Murcer also wore it.”

    I agree.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  108. good info August 11th, 2014 at 12:27 am

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
