MLB Rumors: Yankees To Sign Adam Ottavino, Making Top-Flight Bullpen Even Better


Matthews: Zach Britton has one thing on his mind by returning to the Yankees - winning.

Jeff Passan of first reported the signing, which gives the Yankees six star-caliber bullpen arms counting closer Aroldis Chapman, Dellin Betances, Chad Green, Jonathan Holder and Britton.

An overwhelmingly strong bullpen might just be what the Yankees need, considering they haven't done too much to improve their starting rotation. They traded for Álex Colomé and then signed free agent Kelvin Herrera.

The 6-5, 220 pounder the third former Rockies star to sign with the Yankees in the last couple of weeks, as shortstop Troy Tulowitzki joined them on January 2 and second baseman DJ LeMahieu signed on January 12.

At 33-years-old, Ottavino finally appears to be reaching his peak and it's nearly too ideal that it happened right as free agency beckoned. As a minor leaguer, he pitched for Italy in the 2009 World Baseball Classic.

Sin embargo ahora, la compañía explicó que no harán lo mismo en el caso de " Bird Box " y la película permanecerá tal y como está. Entre las escenas se cuela un tren envuelto en llamas, uno de los trenes de Quebec .

The 33-year-old has a career 3.68 ERA, pitching all of 22.1 innings without the Colorado.

Before you get all worked up, it's a very distinct possibility that the Colorado Rockies will not be able to resign Nolan Arenado. That held true even after Ottavino suffered an injury to his ulnar collateral ligament which required Tommy John surgery early in the 2015 season. A big reason for that is Ottavino's pitch selection. Should he continue to wear it for the Yankees, he will have found the only single-digit number remaining in the Bronx. Nos.

The White Sox have been linked to right-handed reliever Adam Ottavino this offseason, but he's heading to the Yankees.

NY is among only three teams now projected to pay tax this year, along with the Boston Red Sox and the Chicago Cubs.
