Son of Yhency

And so comes spring's see-saw

It looks like Yhency's taking some time to settle in this spring, as he hasn't shown any consistency in his first three appearances. First, an awful outing was followed by a stellar one.

Now, more struggling. For in one inning yesterday, Yhency allowed three hits and two earned runs, including the go-ahead hit off of Ryan Langerhans of the Braves, thus saddling himself with the loss.

Should we be concerned by Yhency's inconsistency and his 13.50 ERA in three appearances this spring? Not yet, I say. For while he allowed several walks and a wild pitch in Thursday's game last week, Yhency's control seemed to be a little better yesterday, as all of the batters he allowed on base did so via a hit. Not the best of take-aways, but it's something. And I'll take it on to another day, hoping we see improvements.
