On the pitching side of things, Jonathan Loaisiga will make his fifth appearance — and third start — of the spring. The right-hander has had a rough spring results-wise, allowing five runs in seven innings pitched. His stuff, however, caught his teammates’ attention.
“Fastball that moves, the hook, a changeup he can throw at any time,” explained Austin Romine to Erik Boland. “It’s an easy 97 [mph]. A lot to like.”
Loaisiga is almost a lock to make the team given the injury to Luis Severino. How he fares throughout the rest of camp, however, will determine if he heads north as a starter or a reliever.
Behind Loaisiga, the Yankees will trot out a representative lineup.
I guess you could say the Orioles do as well? Maybe.
