  • Yankees' Jhony Brito: Sent down to minors

    Brito was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday.

    Brito struggled in his start Saturday against the Reds, allowing four runs on four hits and four walks over four innings. That pushed his season ERA and WHIP to 5.58 and 1.49, respectively, which prompted the Yankees to send him down. Brito's active roster spot and slot in the rotation will go to Luis Severino, who is slated to make his campaign debut Sunday after a lengthy stay on the injured list due to a lat injury. Given his 4.0 BB/9, one of Brito's primary goals while in the minors will likely be to improve his control.

  • Yankees' Jhony Brito: Struggles with control

    Brito did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing four runs on four hits and four walks over four innings against the Reds. He struck out six.

    Brito narrowly avoided a disastrous third inning, walking three straight batters to load the bases with two outs, but he managed to allow just one run to score in the inning. However, the Reds got their revenge, with Luke Maile tagging Brito for a two-run home run that brought Jose Barrero in to score. After finishing each of his last three appearances with three or fewer strikeouts, Brito finally found his strikeout stuff, fanning six over four innings to tie his season high in punchouts. With Luis Severino (lat) expected to make his debut Sunday, Brito may be headed toward a demotion considering his 5:3 K/BB and 5.58 ERA likely won't be enough to warrant keeping him on the big league roster.

  • Yankees' Jhony Brito: Draws start Saturday

    Brito will toe the rubber Saturday versus the Reds, Randy Miller of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    The Yankees officially announced Brito as the starter Saturday, waiting until nearly the last minute to make that decision public. The right-hander earned a win the last time he was on the mound, pitching 5.1 innings of one-run ball while allowing six hits and striking out two batters Monday against the Blue Jays. Since he surrendered seven runs to the Twins on April 13, Brito has produced a respectable 4.56 ERA and 1.44 WHIP with 16 strikeouts over 25.2 frames in six appearances with the Yankees.

  • Yankees' Jhony Brito: Earns win versus Toronto

    Brito (3-3) earned the win Monday, allowing four runs on six hits across 5.1 innings during a 7-4 win over the Blue Jays. He struck out two and did not issue a walk.

    Brito served as a bulk reliever Monday after Jimmy Cordero went two innings as an opener. The right-handed Brito was solid and has now allowed one or fewer runs while completing at least five innings four times this season. Across nine appearances (eight starts), Brito sports a 5.20 ERA, 1.43 ERA and 24:14 K:BB over 36.1 innings. Despite the decent performance Monday, Brito is still a candidate to head back to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre when Luis Severino (lat) is activated off the injured list.

  • Yankees' Jhony Brito: In line for bulk relief

    Brito is in line to serve as a bulk reliever in Monday's game versus the Blue Jays, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    Though Brito has started in all eight of his appearances to date and was lined up to take the hill for the first game of the series in Toronto, the Yankees are instead having Jimmy Cordero serve as an opener for the contest. Cordero will likely work an inning or two before giving way to Brito, who has posted a 10.57 ERA and surrendered a 1.102 OPS to opposing hitters in the first inning against him this season. Brito could soon be headed to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, as Luis Severino (lat) is nearing a return from the injured list and would presumably take Brito's spot in the rotation.

  • Yankees' Jhony Brito: No decision Wednesday

    Brito did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks over 4.1 innings against Oakland. He struck out three.

    Both runs against Brito came in the second inning on back-to-back homers from Carlos Perez and Jace Peterson. Brito ultimately didn't qualify for the win, allowing a walk and a double in the fifth inning before being relieved by Jimmy Cordero. The 25-year-old Brito is now 0-3 in his last six starts after winning his first two outings of the year. Brito now sports a 5.81 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 22:14 K:BB through eight starts (31 innings) this season. Brito may be destined for Triple-A soon, with Luis Severino (lat) starting a rehab assignment Wednesday.

  • Yankees' Jhony Brito: Struggles early in no-decision

    Brito did not factor into the decision Friday, allowing four runs on six hits and one walk over four innings in a 5-4 loss against the Rays. He struck out two.

    Brito allowed at least one run in each of the first three innings, including solo home runs to Randy Arozarena in the first and Yandy Diaz in the third. The right-hander has surrendered multiple runs in four of his past five outings and hasn't completed more than five innings yet. Despite the struggles, Brito figures to remain in the starting rotation as long as Carlos Rodon (back) and Luis Severino (lat) remain on the 15-day injured list.

  • Yankees' Jhony Brito: Gets back on track

    Brito (2-3) took the loss Saturday, allowing two runs on four hits and one walk over five innings against Texas. He struck out five.

    After three consecutive starts without reaching five innings, Brito delivered a solid outing Saturday, despite the loss. The five strikeouts were the most the rookie has recorded since his first start of the season. Brito has a 5.56 ERA across 22.2 innings this year, but that number is a bit inflated since half of the runs he has allowed came in one start against the Twins on April 13.

  • Yankees' Jhony Brito: Shaky in short outing

    Brito (2-2) allowed three runs on three hits and three walks over 2.2 innings Monday, striking out one and taking a loss against the Twins.

    Brito turned in two scoreless frames before the Twins broke out with three runs in the third inning. Minnesota has had his number in 2023; Brito has allowed 10 runs in 3.1 frames against the Twins this season compared to just two runs through 14.1 innings in his other three starts. His ERA jumped to 6.11 alongside a 12:10 K:BB. Brito's next start is projected to be in Texas this weekend.

  • Yankees' Jhony Brito: Bounces back with one-run outing

    Brito allowed one run on three hits and three walks while striking out three batters over 4.1 innings in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Angels in 10 innings. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Brito was shelled for seven runs over two-thirds of an inning in his previous outing after giving up just one run across 10 frames over his first pair of big-league starts. Wednesday's performance was somewhere in-between; while he issued a career-high three walks and retired the side in order just once, Brito gave up only one run, which occurred after he departed from the game. The rookie hurler labored by throwing 84 pitches (47 of which were strikes) over his 4.1 frames, but this was a promising bounce-back performance following the blow-up in his previous start. Neither Carlos Rodon (back) nor Luis Severino (lat) are expected to return until at least May, so Brito figures to get at least another couple turns in the rotation.

  • Yankees' Jhony Brito: Struggles mightily in loss

    Brito (2-1) took the loss Thursday, allowing seven runs on six hits and one walk over two-thirds of an inning against the Twins. He struck out zero.

    Brito was the main culprit in the Yankees' worst first inning since 2000. The rookie struggled with his command, leaving too many easy pitches over the middle of the plate for the Twins' hitters. The Dominican native will have a chance to redeem himself Wednesday against the Angels, where he will look to regain the form he had in his first two starts (one run in 10 innings pitched).

  • Yankees' Jhony Brito: Sharp again Saturday

    Brito (2-0) picked up the win Saturday, allowing one run on three hits and two walks over five innings in a 4-1 victory over the Orioles. He struck out two.

    The rookie right-hander wasn't dominant, generating only six swinging strikes among his 92 pitches, but Brito didn't give up much hard contact and benefitted from some strong defense behind him. Unlike his last start, Brito wasn't immediately sent back to Triple-A after his outing, and it looks as though he'll get a chance to make a case for the Yankees' fifth starter job after posting a 0.90 ERA and 8:3 K:BB through his first 10 major-league innings. If he does remain with the big club, the 25-year-old's next start would likely come at home against the Twins.

  • Yankees' Jhony Brito: Promoted for Saturday's start

    Brito was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre ahead of his start against the Orioles on Saturday.

    Brito delivered five scoreless innings during his MLB debut last Sunday and will make another turn through the rotation Saturday. The 25-year-old spent most of last season at Triple-A and had a 3.31 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 53:24 K:BB across 70.2 innings. Josh Donaldson (hamstring) and Jonathan Loaisiga (elbow) were placed on the injured list.

  • Yankees' Jhony Brito: Starting against O's on Saturday

    Brito will start for the Yankees on Saturday against the Orioles, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

    The Yankees rotation will be pushed back one day with Nestor Cortes now starting against the Orioles on Sunday. Brito pitched well in his MLB debut, giving up two hits over five scoreless frames against the Giants on April 2, and he'll get another chance to impress against an Orioles lineup that has performed well thus far. The Yankees will need to make a roster move before Saturday's game to clear room for his promotion.

  • Yankees' Jhony Brito: Could return April 12

    Manager Aaron Boone said Monday that Brito could return to the Yankees on April 12 when they need a No. 5 starter, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports.

    Brito was sent down to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after his MLB debut Sunday, but it had nothing to do with how he pitched. The right-hander gave up just two hits over five scoreless frames while picking up a victory over the Giants, but the Yankees won't need a fifth starter until next week. Assuming Luis Severino (lat) isn't ready to come off the injured list, it would be a surprise if anyone but Brito was starting for New York next Wednesday.

  • Yankees' Jhony Brito: Impresses in debut

    Brito (1-0) allowed two hits and a walk over five shutout frames Sunday, striking out six and earning a win over the Giants.

    Brito earned a spot in the rotation with a solid spring and a few injuries ahead of him on the depth chart. He backed that up with a scoreless MLB debut that featured 16 whiffs, 11 of which came from the changeup. The 25-year-old never allowed a Giant to reach scoring position. Brito posted a 2.96 ERA in 112.2 innings with Double-A Somerset and Triple-A Wilkes-Barre/Scranton last season. He's projected to start in Baltimore in his next start.

  • Yankees' Jhony Brito: Sent down following solid debut

    Brito was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.

    Brito made his major-league debut Sunday against the Giants and allowed two hits and a walk while striking out six in five scoreless innings to earn the win. While he'll head to the minors following his impressive showing, the move is likely being made since the Yankees have an off day next week, so the team could choose to utilize a four-man rotation. However, it wouldn't be surprising to see Brito return to the majors around mid-April, especially if Luis Severino (lat) needs more time on the injured list.
