Last year, while she was pregnant and her husband lay beside her, Ashlee Yates went into a seizure in her sleep. Another struck that August. Ashlee and Kirby Yates have learned to deal with epilepsy in their lives. Now they want to help others do the same: https://t.co/oRDtYOsH1z
besides the rizzo HBP i don’t think Kirby Yates missed a spot the entire inning. dotted the entire edge of the zone https://t.co/xriFVWmpez
If the Padres take the lead, Kirby Yates gets the ninth. If the Padres don't take the lead, Kirby Yates gets the ninth.
Kirby Yates is at 3.2 fWAR.
Trevor Hoffman's best season ever was 3.1 fWAR.
The life of Padres pitcher Kirby Yates was altered when his then-pregnant wife, Ashlee, experienced a seizure in her sleep. Now, writes @dennistlin
, the couple is learning to deal with epilepsy and is helping others in the same situation.
“We had it going. We ran out of gas, stopped playing well, blah, blah, blah. So yes, frustrating.”
#Padres process wears on players who know a team can’t win unless it’s all in. https://t.co/N5z9oj8DS9
Essentially in save situations, batters are Austin Hedges against Kirby Yates and in non-save situations they turn into Manny Machado 🤷♂️ https://t.co/O9zYBS2TE3
I have an old high school buddy who has battled epilepsy his entire life. Great work here from @dennistlin
on #Padres closer Kirby Yates & wife Ashlee, her recent diagnosis & charity they are starting. Important stuff for tough condition. https://t.co/u0XRICeIeE
Why do the Padres still have Kirby Yates? Goodness, they could have cleaned up at the deadline for him.
@jgbarratt @ESPNChiCubs @gmanskigee
I repeat Kirby Yates is out of the game let's hold them and score in the in the 10th
We can get within 3 the Cardinals if we pull this off
Kirby Yates awaits, so they have Bryzzo with a chance to tie it in the 9th and if not, it’s daunting.
If the Phillies don't try their hardest to go after Kirby Yates this winter I'm not watching the 2020 season
“You can’t have one foot in and expect everything to turn out good. This is the toughest league in the world. It’s not easy to win major league baseball games. You need all your bullets, and you need all your studs. That’s just how it is.” - Kirby Yates
Kirby Yates my goodness. Making those Cubbies power hitters absolutely whif.
Kirby Yates is the real deal! The Padres would be stupid to get rid of him!!!
Damn. Best hitters #Cubs have tonight and Kirby Yates does what he's been doing all season. Striking them out and leaving them guessing...
Yet if Kirby Yates were on the Cubs, he’d probably give up the game winning runs
Step 1: Kirby Yates, get the Cubs out
Step 2: Padres walk off
Make it happen.
Padres closer Kirby Yates and his wife, Ashlee, will host an Epilepsy Awareness Night at Petco Park after Ashlee was diagnosed with the condition last year. https://t.co/o289WsGVop
To the 10th, thank god Kirby Yates isn't out there cause he looked unhittable. #Cubs
Eric Hosmer on with two outs in the ninth inning for the Padres, who pinch-hit for Kirby Yates earlier in the inning.
Who the heck is Kirby Yates and how does he paint the black on every pitch? That was video game accuracy/location.
Kirby Yates hits Rizzo with 2 outs, Kris Bryant comes to the plate having already hit 2 homers tonight, Yates strikes out Bryant swinging to end the top of the 9th Cubs & Padres remain tied @ 8 apiece
