Jonathan Loáisiga Recalled

Johnny Lasagna is back!

September 2 brings a second call-up now that rosters have expanded, as the Yankees recalled right-handed pitcher Jonathan Loáisiga from Double-A Trenton. He had been scheduled to start today for the Thunder.

Loáisiga made his MLB debut June 15, throwing five innings of shutout ball against Tampa Bay. He wound up making four starts before being optioned, and dealing with inflammation in his right shoulder. He finished his first MLB stint with a 2-0 record and 3.00 ERA (2.87 FIP).

The 23-year-old returned to action August 11, making one start in the Gulf Coast League and another three for Trenton. He didn’t record a decision, but owned a 2.45 ERA in 11 innings pitched.

The Yankees signed Loáisiga as a minor league free agent February 9, 2016, after he was released by San Francisco. He was added to the 40-man roster in the 2017 offseason.
