Yankees' Luis Gil starting Tuesday in place of Gerrit Cole (COVID-19)

New York Yankees right-handed pitcher Luis Gil has been named Tuesday's starter against the Baltimore Orioles.

What It Means:

Gil was called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday to help replace Domingo German (shoulder) and Gerrit Cole (COVID-19) in the Yankees' rotation. Cole was scheduled to start on Tuesday before testing positive for COVID on Monday night. Nestor Cortes was previously expected to start for the Yankees in place of Cole on Tuesday. Gil is ranked as the Yankees' number six prospect on MLB Pipeline.

Gil recorded a 2.64 ERA over 30 2/3 innings in Double-A this season, but he struggled with a 5.64 ERA over 30 1/3 innings at the Triple-A level.
