The New York Yankees’ bullpen remains the second best in the entire MLB, with a collective ERA of 2.86 that is second only to the Houston Astros.
But the uncertainty surrounding Aroldis Chpaman and injuries such as those of Zack Britton and Michael King, who will not return this season, forces them to go to the Major League market in search of a reliever who can strengthen the bullpen.
These are some of the names on the market that manager Brian Cashman can consider to strengthen his payroll.
The 37-year-old veteran with 14 seasons of experience in the majors seems to be the ideal option for the Yankees. He is an old acquaintance of the organization, as he played 9 seasons in pinstripes and lifted the World Series champion trophy with the club. He is now with the Chicago Cubs and he has had a great performance. In 36 appearances he is 3-0 with 14 saves and a 2.23 ERA. He has struck out 51 batters in 40 1/3 innings and will be a free agent at the end of the season.
