P. Danny Burawa
Burawa was added to the Yankees 40-man roster this past off-season and the right-hander could find himself called up at some point if the Yankees want another power arm out of the bullpen to help keep it fresh.
Burawa has had issues with his control throughout his minor league career, and this year, he’s seemingly started to turn that around a bit.
Burawa at AAA has a 1.71 ERA in 16 games so far. In 21 innings, he struck out 16 and has held opponents to just a .155 BAA. Branden Pinder has already been called up this year, but I think if the Yankees need a different arm out of the bullpen, the Long Island native could be the next man up.
