Yankees latest news and rumors | Aaron Boone isn’t worried about Loáisiga, Ben Rortvedt and more

New York Yankees reliever Jonathan Loáisiga had another tough outing this week that shot his ERA to 5.93 this MLB season.

Despite the Nicaraguan’s struggles this Major League season, manager Aaron Boone said he’s not worried.

“It was kind of uncharacteristic,” Boone told NJ.com of his latest appearance. “He lost a little bit of control and that’s unlike him. We saw him in back to back starts where he struggled but he has righted the ship ever since. Tonight, simply put, he fought with his command.”
