Gerrit Cole has to wait another day to wash away the taste of his previous start in Boston.
Thursday’s game against the Angels changed the Yankees ’Metro series pitching plans, meaning Cole will return on Saturday and Jordan Montgomery will start the game against the Mets at the Stadium on Friday.
“Hopefully this will be a fun environment,” Cole said, adding that the makeup game was moved to Monday, Aug. 16, before the rain was announced. “It’s nice to have this weekend, take the kids to the park. Hopefully this will be an electric atmosphere filled with a lot of New York fans and we’ll have good ball games. and I hope we play well. ”
Last Sunday, Cole made his worst start to the season and allowed five runs in eight hits in five games, including a three-game losing streak with a 9-2 loss as the Red Sox rocked the series at Fenway Park. home games.
“As the game went on, I thought I was stronger, but the delivery in the first period didn’t allow me to organize the pitches,” Cole said. “I looked at it. There is a slightly different tempo and a different rhythm to it. I just want to slip earlier. ”
The Yankees have yet to announce a starter for Sunday’s final.
Premier League leader Jacob deGrom played for the Mets in Atlanta on Thursday night and will not play against the Yankees, but when Cole asked The Post about his residence ace, it was nothing more than a compliment.
“He’s as good as he can be, isn’t he?” Cole said. “He impresses with his speed, his movement on the pitch, his location, and the numbers that support him. And then it scratches to boot [at the plate].
“So it was a lot of fun to watch, it was great for the game. I have encountered him several times in my career and he is a humble guy from the bottom up. As competitors, we don’t always build on them when we play against teams or mugs like that, but as professionals, it was great to watch from the outside, from the other side of town. It was really hard to understand him, I think he was somehow good. ”
Aaron Bunn said Clint Frazier was sent for a “test battery” on Thursday, a day after he was removed from the Angels’ 11-8 loss after three shots due to Yankee dizziness. The 26-year-old has been involved in a history of concussions, and Bone admitted that medical staff were “considering all of this.”
“It simply came to our notice then [of nowhere]“Boone said.” To get that word in the second inning, or whatever, yes, we’re just holding hands and trying to see what we can learn, I hope it’s true. riladi. “
The Yankees bought 22-year-old minor league midfielder Aldenis Sanchez from the Rays on June 17 as a player to be named later in a contract with first-team player Mike Ford.
