Nestor Cortes Jr. optioned to Triple-A

After pitching in Thursday evening's game, the Yankees optioned Nestor Cortes Jr. to Triple-A.

Fantasy Impact

With rain forcing a doubleheader, the Yankees utilized an opener for Thursday's nightcap. Cortes Jr. returned to the role of following Chad Green, one he grew familiar with in June (18 1/3 innings pitched) while New York's rotation dealt with injuries. The result remained relatively the same as he threw 3 1/3 innings, allowing one run on two hits against the Rays. If recalled, Cortes Jr. could be a valuable fantasy asset for those looking to find long-relief work.
