Yankees scouts watched Cueto pitch for the Cincinnati Reds against the Cleveland Indians Sunday afternoon, July 19.
Awesome, said Kluber (5-10), who has double-digit losses because of the lack of help from the offense.
In his past two starts, Leake has not done anything to discourage potential suitors. I have to make a better pitch.
Leake would be the ideal trade candidate for the Cubs considering the team is looking for a starting pitcher to go at the end of their rotation and one that would not cost a high price in prospects. The three walks were as many as Cueto issued in any of his previous 17 starts this season. Zach McAllister earned his first career save. With two outs in the ninth, Suarez doubled and scored when pinch-hitter Jason Bourgeois singled to right, tying the score 3-3.
Gomes completed Clevelands big game with a three-run homer in the seventh off Nate Adcock.
It was a tough night for Bauer who would go just four innings allowing five earned runs on seven hits.
Three Reds relievers combined to keep the Indians off the board while three Cleveland relievers were able to do the same before Cincinnati scratched out a run against the fifth and final reliever.
Leake atoned for his outing against the Indians on May 22, which is tied for his shortest of the season. He had two doubles in Friday’s 6-1 loss to the Reds. I did not see anything egregious fielding, but his swing is considerably uglier, regardless of the fact that hit a home run with it tonight.
Michael Bourns infield single in the second inning ended his 0-for-15 slump. Gomes homer was his fourth of the season and his first since June 29.
Indians: LHP Nick Hagadone is scheduled to visit Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion on his elbow injury, Francona said. Hagadone hurt his left elbow while pitching in a rehab game on Wednesday…. After winning 20 games in the 2014 Major League Baseball season, there is a great chance he bounces back in his next start. He allowed a run on a ground out in the sixth after giving up a single and a double to lead off the inning, but that was the only blemish on his record.
