Takes loss Friday
PNew York Yankees
October 1, 2021
Cortes (2-3) took the loss Friday versus Tampa Bay. He allowed two runs on five hits and struck out five in 4.2 innings.
ANALYSIS
The southpaw allowed a solo shot to Nelson Cruz in the first inning and an RBI single to Kevin Kiermaier in the second to account for the runs on his line. Cortes wasn't bad, but the Yankees' offense fell short in a ninth-inning rally. He'll end the regular season with a 2.90 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 103:25 K:BB across 93 innings. Those numbers could give him a path to being in the postseason rotation should the Yankees get that far.
