-Cano looks amazing in the field and at the plate. Forget about the results, because its too small of a sample size, but he’s hitting the ball hard the opposite way and swinging at good pitches. Neither of which we saw much of last year.
-Keep an eye on Swisher getting some of Matsui’s ABs. Swisher has been terrific outside of a fielding miscue yesterday. Matsui is running at 3/4 speed, and has looked bad at the plate so far.
-Nice to see Andy throwing his slider again yesterday. If he’s healthy, he should win 16 games. If we get that many wins out of our 4th starter, were looking at a tremendous season.
-The quality and depth of this starting rotation will make it very hard for the Yanks to have any extended losing streaks.
-Ian Kennedy was off the charts in Scranton last night, posting a line of 6 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 11 K, 2-5 GB/FB – 68 of 86 pitches were for strikes (79.1%)
-Dellin Betances dominated in Tampa, posting 6 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 5-6 GB/FB. He was actually even better than his line implies. He walked the first batter he faced, who stole 2nd and 3rd base, then scored on a grounder. Gave up very little after that. Main thing to watch with Dellin are the walks, and 2 per start is fine, especially since he usually doesn’t get hit much. Though Dellin still has to work on holding runners on. 3 of the 5 men who reached stole a base, one of them twice.
