New York Yankees – The entire Yankees team has struggled as of late, but maybe nobody more than Clay Holmes. Holmes was brought in to protect a one-run lead in the 9th yesterday. He got 1 quick out before walking the next two batters and giving up the tying single before getting pulled for Wandy Peralta. The Yankees would go on to lose in extra innings. Holmes has now given up runs in 4 of his last 5 appearances, including 3 blown saves. Command seems to be the source of his trouble, as he has issued the same number of walks in his last 10 appearances as he has for the rest of the season (39 apps). Meanwhile, Aroldis Chapman pitched a clean 8th ahead of Holmes, and now has 8 straight scoreless appearances. It’s a bit too early to make a change here, but Holmes is certainly on a hot seat now, and with Chapman and Peralta continuing to pitch well, Holmes may not have many chances left.  

Hierarchy remains: Holmes | Peralta | Chapman.

Yeah I have him too in a CBS league. No win for Holmes there. I just don't understand why the scorer is able to pick who gets the win. It's not like the Yanks were ahead the whole game and the starter didn't go 5, and the scorer picks the most effective reliever. 

If someone sees an explanation of this, please share.

That's what MLB now shows, and it's crazy. Win for Peralta. For teams using Onroto, it still shows Holmes w the win, Peralta a save. Hope that's the final decision. I own Holmes.

So did Holmes get the Win last night or not? He came on in the bottom of the 8th with the Yanks ahead 2-0, allowing Cole's runner to score and then 1 of his own to score to tie it up at 2. Holmes pitched 2/3 of an inning, 1ER allowed. The Yankees got 2 in the top of the 9th to go up 4-2 and then Peralta closed it out with a scoreless 9th. 

You would think that's a Win for Holmes and a Save for Peralta, but I'm seeing just a Win for Peralta. Was the official scorer that upset that Holmes blew Cole's Win? Relievers blow saves all the time and still get the Win...not sure what's going on here.

New York Yankees — Bullpen hierarchies change fast, and Aaron Boone has quickly found that his most trusted late-inning relievers ahead of Aroldis Chapman are 29-year-old sinkerballer Clay Holmes and crafty long man Michael King. Boone’s turn to Holmes last night for a vulture save with Chapman resting means a promotion to first in line. 

Updated hierarchy: Chapman | Holmes | Loaisiga.
