The Yankees are adding another piece to their bullpen for some depth for the season’s final month. The Yankees acquired relief pitcher Chaz Roe from the Miami Marlins in exchange for cash. Roe may be coming up with the rosters expanding tomorrow.

Roe has been in AAA for Miami the entire season. He was 3-3 with a 3.66 ERA and 14 saves. He’s struck out 72 in 64.1 innings, giving up 53 hits and walking 21 with a 1.15 WHIP.
Roe last appeared in the majors last season for the Arizona Diamondbacks. He went 1-0 with a 4.03 ERA, striking out 24 in 22.1 innings.
Roe’s just another body to give the Yankees some depth from the right side to go along with the acquisiton of Josh Outman a couple of days ago from the left. It would be nice to see them acquire a bat of some sort, but it doesn’t appear that that is going to be in the cards by midnight eastern to add a postseason eligible player to the roster.
