Observations of the Yankees spring training game on Wednesday.
Yoendrys Gomez came in to pitch the final inning of the Yankees’ eight-inning 15-0 loss to the Phillies in Clearwater, Florida, and in his scoreless outing he demonstrated why Baseball America considers him the organization’s eighth overall prospect. The 21-year-old right-hander spent 2019 in Single-A Charleston and was included on the 40-man roster this offseason. He hit 97 mph with the gun Thursday.
More prospect observation
Albert Abreu allowed four runs in just two-thirds of an inning in the Phillies’ fourth of nine runs. The 25-year-old still has a minor league option left.
He caught my attention
The Yankees allowed six home runs in the loss: two by Deivi Garcia and Nestor Cortes, one by Abreu and one by Reggie McClain.
