Clarkin Returns to Game Action in Surprise Loss

Monday was the start of a new week of Arizona Fall League games and New York Yankees prospects were front and center with four Baby Bombers in the starting lineup for the Surprise Saguaros and another coming in relief.

Among those on the list was left-handed pitcher Ian Clarkin who got the start after sitting out the entire 2015 season with elbow inflammation.  Clarkin had some work in the instructional league but this was his return to live game action and he showed off a low-90s fastball and the plus curveball over 64-pitches.

Over 4 innings pitched, Ian was touched for 1 run on 4 hits and 3 walks, striking out two batters before being relieved by fellow Yankees prospect Chaz Hebert.  Hebert took the loss after allowing an unearned run over2 innings of work, allowing a hit and 2 walks but striking out 4 Rafters hitters.

Catcher Gary Sanchez continued his strong Arizona Fall League season with a 1-for-4 appearance, his lone hit was a single in the top of the eighth inning.  Tyler Austin was 0-for-3 with a walk while Tyler Wade went 0-for-4.
