Isiah Kiner-Falefa finally collects first hit as a Yankee

Isiah Kiner-Falefa finally collects first hit as a Yankee

Isiah Kiner-Falefa is finally found. The shortstop went 0-for-8 against the Red Sox at Yankee Stadium on Sunday night in the finale with an error in the first two games. Halfway through the Bombers’ innings, Kiner-Falefa took the lead with a double in fourth place.

Aaron Boone, however, wasn’t worried about that snowballing at the 27-year-old Yankees he received from the twins last month.

“I think aggressively he has hit a few balls too hard and has nothing to show for it yet. Obviously made a mistake on the throw on the run,” said the Yankees manager from Sunday night’s game. Said before. “I like where he is from a mindset. He is aggressive. He is attacking on both sides of the ball. Now we just have to dot that hit column, but he’s especially going to come off with his bat-to-ball skills, and like I said, I feel like he hit a couple of balls on the nose last night , so that would be good.”

Kinner-Falefa is a career-hit .265/.316/.354 hitter with 16 home runs in four years in the big leagues. He came to the majors as a catcher and was a Gold Glove third baseman, but said shortstop was the position he was most comfortable in.

Kiner-Falefa tossed a ground ball in eighth, but Gleber Torres’ quick turn—and a slow Red Sox video replay room—got a double-play.

pinstripe debut

Jose Trevino made his Yankee debut on Sunday night, catching left-hander Jordan Montgomery in a nationally televised game. The catcher was obtained from the Rangers in the final weeks of spring training, when it was clear that Ben Rortvedt, the catcher the Yankees got in the trade with the twins along with Kinner-Falefa and Josh Donaldson, was unprepared for the season. Was about to

Trevino took a single in the fourth and scored a run.

“I like Jose behind the plate. We talked about how good (Kyle Higashioka) is up there and rightly so. But Jose is making a tremendous comeback there too,” Boone said. “And it’s just what you said Higgy isn’t going to every day. Feel like Jose’s already got a chance to work with Monty a little bit. He caught his last live session and realized that They are very well connected. He is very excited to be making his first debut with us. And, getting more mix.”

Trevino, 29, is a .245/.270/.364 career hitter in parts of four years in the big leagues. Last year, he started a career-high 89 games for Rangers, hitting .239 with five homers and 30 RBIs.

Rortvedt had a right slant when the Yankees made the deal. He was still feeling stressed, so the Yankees sent him for an MRI this week. Boone said they have been cleared to begin the ramp up.

DJ Rest on Day 3

With his unique roster, Boone’s will turn people around for a day off. On Sunday, DJ Lemhieu was on the bench.

“I’m trying to get out the front and watch the matchups when it makes the most sense. I think most of our players, if not all, will probably be here in the first 10 (games) at least one day.” Will be,” Boone said. “So trying to be a little strategic with how we do it. I’m sure there will be a wrinkle here that changes how we want to do it. But as I said that day, this is probably the most I’ve done, where I’m at least penciling in as many days ahead as I can. ,

LeMahieu ended up hitting the pinch in eighth place, flying to right field.
