Jonathan Loáisiga was 3-1 with a 4.32 ERA in his first six starts there, with a total of 58 strikeouts and only four walks in 45 innings between the two teams.
That caused the Yankees to promote him to the Show on June 12th, with him set to make his debut in a start on June 15th, replacing Masahiro Tanaka, who was injured.
He was chosen for the assignment because he was already on the 40-man roster, as opposed to other top pitching prospects in the organization.
He pitched brilliantly in his first game against the Tampa Bay Rays, allowing no runs on three hits in five innings and earning a 5-0 victory.
He perplexed the Philadelphia Phillies for 5 1/3 innings on June 25th, giving only one hit and two walks in a 4-2 victory.
He was flawless through the first four innings, walked Carlos Santana to start the fifth but left him stranded, and only gave up his first hit in the sixth when Jorge Alfaro singled.
After a walk and a ground out, he was replaced by David Robertson, who did not allow either runner to score. He was 2-0 with a 5.11 ERA in nine games for the Yankees, starting four of them.
