New York Yankees Editorial: Questions for Yankees Pitching Staff in Second Half

4 of 4

Can They Keep It Going?

These three Yankees are having their best years, and the Yankees need them to continue their great success. Chasen Shreve was the throw in player in a trade with the Braves this year. It has turned out the Shreve has been the best piece of the trade. While Miller was injured,  Shreve stepped up and has established himself in the bullpen. Shreve has established himself as relief pitcher that can get both left-handers and right-handers. The Yankees will rely more on Shreve as the season goes on, and we will see if Shreve continues his career year.

Adam Warren has been one of the most consistent pitchers for the Yankees all year. Warren was sent to the bullpen after being one of the most consistent starters due to his innings limit. Warren has already pitched more this year then he has in his entire career. Adam Warren continues to be as reliable as they come, but will see what happens when Warren hits his innings limit, or his arm fatigues down the stretch.

Justin Wilson was traded over by the Pirates this winter. Wilson stepped up like Shreve when Andrew Miller was put on the DL earlier this year.  Wilson can get both left-handed and right-handed bats out, and helps give the bullpen depth. Wilson is having his career year, and hopefully it continues in the second half of the season.
