Tommy Kahnle continued his dominant season, retiring the only batter he faced to earn his second save of the year in the Yankees' 4-2 win over the Mariners.
The right-hander has yet to allow a run this season, sporting a pristine 0.00 ERA and 0.39 WHIP over eight appearances. With a 10.6 K/9 and a 9.00 strikeout-to-walk ratio, Kahnle has been a reliable option out of the bullpen for the Yankees.
Reliever Tommy Kahnle will make at least two more minor-league rehab appearances before potentially re-joining the Yankees.
Kahnle has made two appearances to this point but will need at least two more, including one of at least four outs, before potentially re-joining the big club. The veteran dealt with injuries all spring and has pitched just 13 2/3 innings since the beginning of the 2020 season but owns a strong 3.78 ERA across 298 career appearances.
New York Yankees pitcher Tommy Kahnle is expected the resume throwing after being shut down due to right biceps tendinitis.
It's been a tough go for Kahnle who has made just 14 appearances over the last three seasons due to Tommy John surgery but managed to land a two-year deal in his return to the Yankees this winter. Kahnle didn't miss a beat despite the lengthy time off, tossing a 2.84 ERA along with a strong 23.9% K-BB% in 13 appearances spanning 12 2/3 innings with the Dodgers in 2022. Kahnle will be hard-pressed for saves and holds in a crowded Yankees bullpen in 2023.

The right-hander missed all of 2021 due to Tommy John surgery, returning for 12 2/3 innings of 2.84 ERA ball with the Dodgers in 2022. Now back with the Yankees where he pitched parts of four seasons, Kahnle's Opening Day status remains up in the air.
