Jonny Off the Spot: On Loáisiga’s Struggles

In 2021, Jonathan Loáisiga was one of the best relievers in baseball. Over 70.2 innings, he sported a 2.17 ERA, a 2.58 FIP, 3.3 bWAR, and 2.4 fWAR. With an 18.7 K-BB% and a ground ball rate over 60, he was nothing short of dominant to opposing batters. 2022 has not picked up where 2021 left off.

Coming into Saturday’s game in Chicago, he sports a 5.93 ERA and a 5.99 FIP. He’s already surrendered as many homers–3–as he did in all of 2021. He’s already walked 8 batters, too, having only walked 16 in all of 2021.

Game 125: 10 wins in a row

Someone’s nine-game winning streak was coming to an end tonight, but not the Yankees’. The Bombers dropped the Braves by the score of 5-1 in Atlanta to extend the team’s winning streak into double-digits.

Jordan Montgomery wasn’t his best, but Jonathan Loaisiga and the bullpen shut things down behind him. Meanwhile, Giancarlo Stanton carried the offense as the Yankees made easy work of the second-hottest team in the league. Things are good right now for the Yankees, huh? Let’s get to tonight’s takeaways:

Game 119: Montgomery returns in yet another nailbiter

If we’ve learned one thing from 2021, it’s that the Yankees will never, ever let us breathe.  In the first game of this split double-header against the Boston Red Sox, the Yankees once again took it down to the wire to secure a 5-3 win in seven innings and pull within one game of the Red Sox in the AL East and Wild Card standings.  To the takeaways –

Game 98: Déjà Vu

Fun fact: Olivia Rodrigo’s hit song Déjà Vu is actually about the 2021 New York Yankees. Today, the Yankees replayed their biggest hit in a 5-4 loss to the Red Sox: a gut-wrenching bullpen meltdown.

The Yankees were in total control through seven-and-a-half innings today. They led 4-0 and Domingo Germán was working on a no-hitter. Then, it all came crashing down like it has so many times before this season. To the takeaways we go:

Game 72: A very bad loss

There are bad losses, and there are bad losses. This one was the latter. The Yankees fell to the Royals 6-5 in the series opener.

Gerrit Cole did his thing with lower spin rates again, but his offense was of little help. He handed a one-run lead to the Jonathan Loaisiga, who coughed it up with significant help from Tyler Wade. DJ LeMahieu’s two-run blast in the eighth cut Kansas City’s lead to one, and the Yankees threatened in the ninth, but it wasn’t enough. Not only was Cole’s start spoiled, but so was Luke Voit’s return to the lineup. To tonight’s takeaways:
