Not surprisingly, the regression coincided with Judge's trip to the disabled list because of achip fracture in his right wrist.Plus, the Yankees' starting rotation hasn't been able to pull its weight with a cumulative ERA of4.05that ranks15thamong all Major League clubs.Most notably, that figure has been hurt by Luis Severino's backslide over the past few months.Although Severino earned his second straight All-Star nod by posting a 2.31 ERA and 14-2 record before the Midsummer Classic Michael Pineda Jersey , he has largely been a liability since.Over11second-half starts, the24-year-old is 4-6with a5.74ERA.Once considered the Yankees' most reliable and overpowering ace, Severino now looks like a dicey starting option in a do-or-die wild card setting.The same can't be said of Masahiro Tanaka, who has been one of the Yankees' few bright spots entering the home stretch with a2.62ERA across11second-half starts.Don't be surprised if Tanaka takes the hill when October rolls around as the Yankees hope to extend their playoff lives and make a second straight trip to the ALDS.While New York still needs to lock in the No. 1 wild-card spot to ensure a home game in the wild-card round, it can now start looking ahead with the intention of setting up its rotation and resting its bullpen in anticipation of the win-or-go-home contest. The San Francisco Giants announced Monday Bobby Evans will no longer be the team's general manager.San Francisco Giants SFGiantsOFFICIAL: Senior Vice President amp;amp; General Manager Bobby Evans will step down from his general manager duties, effective immediately.#SFGiants jpaQwXf2TaHenry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle first reported the news.Giants CEO Larry Baer said the team expects Bruce Bochy to return for the 2019 season Fernando Rodney Jersey , according to Schulman.Since he is signed through 2019, the team plans to offer Evans another job within the organization, but he will also be free to seek employment elsewhere.San Francisco entered Monday with a 72-84 record, the fourth-worst in the National League.Evans has been with the Giants since 1994 but moved to the GM role in 2015 after Brian Sabean was promoted to executive vice president.While the team won three World Series titles in five seasons from 2010 to '14, things have gone south over the past four years.The squad has a 307-335 record in this stretch, with just one playoff appearance that ended with a National League Division Series loss in 2016. The 68-94 record from 2017 represented the Giants' worst season in over 30 years.While San Francisco dealt with a plethora of injuries over the past two years with Madison Bumgarner http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-addison-reed-jersey , Buster Posey, Johnny Cueto and others missing significant time, there was not enough depth to overcome these losses to find success on the field.Bob Nightengale of USA Today noted the Giants will try to replace Evans with two different hires:Bob Nightengale BNightengaleThe #SFGiants planing to hire twopeople for front office with Bobby Evans out: a Vice President of baseball operations and a GeneralManager.
