Nestor Cortes delivered a strong start in a no-decision against the Orioles on Friday, racking up seven strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings of one-run baseball. The 26-year-old southpaw scattered four hits and two walks on the night. He generated 12 swings and misses while posting an impressive CSW of 37 percent. The only damage done against him came on a solo homer by Trey Mancini in the sixth inning. Cortes has been a tremendous addition to the Yankees rotation, compiling a 2.67 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 71/21 K/BB ratio over 67 1/3 innings in 17 appearances (nine starts).
