In order for him to be the starter of the game on Thursday, May 12 against the Chicago White Sox, the New York Yankees promoted Dominican Luis Gil from their Triple A affiliate, according to information provided by the team.
In this way, Gil will make his debut in the 2022 MLB season and, depending on the numbers he registers, he could receive the chance to stay in the rotation of a team from the Bronx that is currently in first place in the Eastern Division of the American League, with a record of 22 wins and 8 losses.
Prior to tonight’s game, the Yankees recalled RHP Luis Gil (#81) from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

This call represents a great opportunity for the 23-year-old pitcher, after last season he left a terrible 9.53 ERA and 1.77 WHIP, after 5 starts. In addition, he added 25 strikeouts and 12 walks in 17 innings of work.
The Bronx team is off to its best start to the season after 30 games since 2003, but it wouldn’t hurt to get some extra help in terms of starting pitching from one of its top prospects.
