  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Reaches one-year deal

    Holmes agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Yankees on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

    Holmes broke out in his age-29 season last year, finishing the season with a 2.54 ERA and 1.02 WHIP while recording the first 20 saves of his career. He's the clear favorite to lead the Yankees in saves this season, though the fact that his ERA jumped from 1.31 prior to the All-Star break to 4.84 in the second half makes him a higher-risk option than one might expect when looking at only his season-long numbers.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Officially available for Game 1

    Manager Aaron Boone said Holmes (shoulder) is available to close Game 1 of the ALDS against the Guardians on Tuesday, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    Holmes has been held out of action since the end of September with a strained right shoulder. After his recent throwing sessions went "really well," according to Boone, Holmes is now cleared for postseason action. The 2022 campaign marked a career year for the 29-year-old righty, as he recorded a 2.54 ERA and 1.02 WHIP over 63.2 innings during the regular season.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Expects to be on ALDS roster

    Holmes (shoulder) is scheduled to face a few batters Monday and expects to be named to the ALDS roster, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

    Holmes suffered a right shoulder strain at the end of September and hasn't pitched in a game since Sept. 26, but the reliever is confident his name will be on the roster for the upcoming ALDS against Cleveland, which begins Tuesday. Holmes noted that he was able to throw "free and easy" in his last bullpen session, and also that his velocity looked good, but he's unsure of his availability for Game 1, per Bryan Hoch of His status figures to depend on how he feels during Monday's session.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Won't be placed on injured list

    Holmes (shoulder) won't be placed on the injured list since he would then be out for the ALDS, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

    Holmes has been sidelined with a right shoulder strain and is five days into a planned 10-day shutdown from throwing. However, manager Aaron Boone said Saturday that he hopes Holmes will be able to build back up in time to pitch in the ALDS, which begins Oct. 11.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Out with shoulder strain

    Holmes is out with a right shoulder strain and the Yankees hope to have him ready for the ALDS, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    A recent MRI confirmed the strain and Holmes also had a cortisone shot. Candidates to get the ball in the Yankees' next save opportunity include Scott Effross, Lou Trivino and Aroldis Chapman. It's possible Holmes won't pitch again until 2023.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Nabs win Thursday

    Holmes (7-4) earned the win over Boston on Thursday, allowing one hit and striking out one batter over two innings.

    Though it wasn't a save situation, Holmes' outing Thursday was a positive step after he allowed a run in four of his previous five appearances. The right-hander preserved a 4-4 tie by keeping Boston off the scoreboard in the ninth inning and worked around the automatic runner in the 10th to again prevent a run. He was credited with the win after the Yankees walked it off in the bottom of the frame. Holmes isn't guaranteed to get all of New York's save chances moving forward with manager Aaron Boone recently indicating he may shift to a committee approach, though Holmes figures to still be in the mix in that scenario.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Boone taking committee approach

    Holmes has given up runs in five of his past six outings, and manager Aaron Boone said Wednesday the Yankees will take a committee approach "on a matchup basis" going forward for the bullpen, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

    Holmes allowed only one run over his first six innings after he returned from the injured list in late August, but the right-hander is now scuffling once again and has lost his grip on the closer role. The 29-year-old still has a 2.55 ERA for the season, though he's allowed 12 earned runs in 19 outings since the All-Star break. Boone didn't specify his preferred option for save chances, but lefties Aroldis Chapman and Wandy Peralta could now be in the mix as well as Scott Effross (shoulder), who will be activated from the injured list Thursday.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Gives up game-winning run

    Holmes (6-4) gave up one earned run on two hits and two walks while striking out one over 0.2 innings to take the loss in a 7-6 defeat against the Brewers on Friday.

    Holmes came into a tie game in the bottom of the ninth and promptly gave up a leadoff double to Hunter Renfroe. The baserunner would eventually come around to score and give the Brewers the walkoff victory on a bases-loaded single by the number nine hitter, Garrett Mitchell. Holmes converted his last three save opportunities coming into the game, but he struggled in this non-save situation. He has an ERA of 4.50 in seven September appearances.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Picks up 20th save

    Holmes picked up the save in Wednesday's 5-3 victory over the Red Sox. He allowed one run on one hit while striking out one over one inning.

    Holmes surrendered a double to Abraham Almonte, who later scored on a groundout from Enrique Hernandez. In his last 11 appearances, the righty's 3.86 ERA over 11.2 innings has been higher than he's grown accustomed to this season. The 29-year-old could see a decrease in high-leverage opportunities with the expected return of lefty reliever Aroldis Chapman (leg) on Friday.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Earns extra-inning win

    Holmes (6-3) earned the win in Tuesday's 7-6 extra-inning victory over Boston. He allowed two runs (one earned) on no hits and no walks while striking out one over 1.1 innings.

    Holmes entered the game with the score tied 4-4 in the bottom of the ninth and recorded a clean inning to send it to extras, but he ran into trouble in the 10th after the Yankees took a 7-4 lead. He was pulled after hitting a batter and then getting an out in the 10th in favor of Wandy Peralta for a lefty-on-lefty matchup. Peralta allowed a base hit and a wild pitch to score the ghost runner and McGuire to make it a 7-6 game. Peralta worked out of it, however, and it all earned Holmes his sixth win of the season. Holmes has been shaky of late, as he has allowed 11 runs (nine earned) in 12.1 innings dating back to July 31.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Notches 19th save

    Holmes earned a save against the Twins on Monday, striking out two batters in a perfect ninth inning.

    Holmes needed only 11 pitches -- seven of which were strikes -- to set Minnesota down in order. The save was his second in as many days and his 19th overall this season. Since his Aug. 29 return from a stint on the injured list, Holmes has surrendered only one run while posting a 6:0 K:BB over four innings.
