Description: Yankees reliever Dellin Betances admitted to the New York Post on Tuesday that his velocity is "nowhere near where it should be".
Insight: Betances did get his fastball up to 94 mph on Tuesday, but he was routinely in the mid-to-high 90s during 2014, so he is still expecting to see more velocity. Manager Joe Giradi isn't too concern, saying the velocity should return as Betances pitches more. Betances is the front runner to be the Yankees closer this season, though, New York has not confirmed that yet.

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.
