SP - NYY - MiLB
As confirmed by the team Saturday, Luis Gil is set to have Tommy John surgery on May 24 at New York-Presbyterian Hospital.
Gil exited Wednesday's start for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, immediately pointing to his elbow following a fifth-inning pitch. The 23-year-old started one game this year for the Yankees, allowing four runs in four innings on May 12th.
Luis Gil left his Wednesday start for the RailRiders’ with two outs in the fifth inning. He grabbed his arm and let the dugout know he needed to be removed from the game.
Gil has only pitched four innings in the majors this season. Hopefully this is just a case of being cautious and not a long-term injury for one of the Yankees’ top prospects.
Luis Gil pitched 4 innings, surrendering four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five in a 15-7 Yankees win on Thursday.
Luis GIl left the game with a lead after the 4th inning but did not qualify for the victory. Gil threw 83 pitches, 54 for strikes in his first start of the season. This appears to be just a spot start for Gil, for now.
Luis Gil was optioned by the Yankees to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Gil had an up and down spring. He pitched well in his first start, but finished the spring with a 6.14 ERA in 7.1 innings. His last outing could have cost him a major league roster spot as Gil allowed five earned runs in 2.1 innings while allowing eight hits.
Luis Gil pitched three innings, striking out four hitters and only walking one.
GIl has yet to allow a run in five Spring Training innings, but the more impressive thing is limiting walks. Gil walked 19 batters in 29 MLB innings last season. He has only walked two so far this year. This will be a huge sticking point for Gil to be a starter long term.
