Yankees Newly debuted Luis Gil already has a date for

New York Yankees He had to pull an ‘ace up his sleeve’ recently as he had to find a replacement for Gerrit Cole, who tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19). The one chosen to replace Cole was Luis Gil and he had to face the Baltimore Orioles in his debut as a pitcher of the MLB. Now, The Yankees reported the date of Gil’s next start in the 2021 Season.

Aaron Boone, manager of the New York Yankees, reported this Wednesday that Luis Gil will be the starting pitcher of the game next Sunday, August 8, against the Seattle Mariners.

The Dominican won the trust of his helmsman after his remarkable and recent debut, in which he faced the Baltimore Orioles as a last-minute substitute for Gerrit Cole, who was sent to the COVID-19 list.

The rookie had a full six innings pitched against Orioles, in which he only allowed four hits, with no run against; he struck out six batters and scored his first win in the majors.

The New York Yankees have struggled with injuries among elements of their starting rotation and the arrival of Luis Gil could serve as a ‘balm’ and as a resource to use in the remainder of the 2021 MLB season.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
