Description: Yankees reliever Dellin Betances struck out six batters over 2 1/3 perfect innings and earned the win Thursday against the Mets.
Insight: Betances has a 1.61 ERA, a 0.94 WHIP and a 39/9 K/BB in 22 1/3 innings this season and may get a crack at the closing job if New York determines it likes David Robertson better as a setup man. Robertson has a 1.74 ERA and a 0.68 WHIP in 10 1/3 innings, so we won't see a switch if performance is the only factor.

Description: Anyone expecting to see Yankees pitching prospect Dellin Betances in the majors now that CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte have hit the disabled list can think again. Betances is actually going in the other direction, as New York demoted the 24-year-old right-hander to Double-A Trenton Wednesday.
Insight: Betances went 3-5 with a 6.39 ERA in 16 starts with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season. The prospect's major problem is his control -- he's walked 69 batters in 74 2/3 innings.
