After Clay Holmes Goes to IL, Yankees Call Up Ron Marinaccio


Table of Contents

Clay Holmes was put on the 15-day injured list by the Yankees on Wednesday. The reliever said the day before that he was having pain in his left lower back.

Ron Marinaccio, a right-handed pitcher, was then called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

After a good start to 2022, Holmes, who took on a closer role earlier this season, was going through a rough patch. In his last game, against the Red Sox on Friday, he blew a save. Holmes had a 10.24 ERA and three blown saves in his last 11 games.

Manager Aaron Boone said earlier in the season that closers would be chosen based on matchups, and he confirmed that would still be the case even though Holmes is on the IL. The Yankees‘ loss of Holmes, on the other hand, gives Marinaccio another well-deserved chance to pitch in the bullpen.

Marinaccio said he thinks the same way he did from May 22 to August 6, when he only gave up one earned run and struck out 26 batters in 22 2/3 innings (which included three weeks on the IL). He said that he just throws as many strikes as he can and lets his stuff happen.

In his last job, he was used in a number of different ways, and Marinaccio said he expects much of the same this time around. Boone said the same thing.
