Yankees RHP Luis Gil made his MLB debut Aug. 3, a 13-1 New York win over the Baltimore Orioles, and he has since proven to be an intriguing option on the pitching staff.

As the Yankees make a postseason push, Gil hopes to earn a spot on the playoff roster.

“I mean, for me, I’m just trying to do the best I can out there, take care of my job and my responsibilities,” Gil said through an interpreter Friday before the three-game series with Cleveland at Yankee Stadium. “You know, I’m putting a lot of heart into this and I’m just trying to win every single game I pitch. And hopefully, I make the playoff roster.”

The 23-year-old Gil is 1-0 with a 2.88 ERA through five starts. He is set to make his sixth Saturday against Cleveland.

In 25 innings pitched, Gil has yielded eight runs on 17 hits (three home runs) while striking out 32 and walking 15. After a dominant debut in August, following the Orioles outing with a pair of impressive starts against the Seattle Mariners (2-0 loss Aug. 8) and Boston Red Sox (2-0 win Aug. 17), Gil’s past two times on the mound have been a mixed batch.

Gil pitched 3 1/3 innings Sept. 8, a 6-3 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays, allowing three runs on one hit but walking seven while striking out six over 91 pitches (47 strikes). In Monday’s 6-5 win over the Minnesota Twins, Gil surrendered three homers on seven hits and allowed five runs. He balanced out his 102-pitch, 63-strike effort by striking out eight while walking one.
