cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

The Yanks made a couple minor acquisitions for depth in the past couple of days.

They picked up RHP Jake Barrett, 27. Barrett, a reliever, pitched in seven games for Arizona last year, going 0-1, 5.14. For his MLB career (2016-2018, all with AZ) he is 2-4, 4.05, ERA+ 113 in  103 games. He was 1-2, 3.49 as a rookie in 2016.

With the injuries to the infield, they also picked up infielder Cliff Pennington, 34 (35 in June), a switch-hitter. Pennington played in 16 games for the Reds in 2018. For his career, he has played for the A’s (2008-2012), Arizona (2013-2015), Blue Jays (2015), Angels (2016-2017) and Reds (2018). Mostly a SS/2B, he can play a little 3B, too. His 162 g. average for his career is .242-6-40, 14 SB , OPS+ 79. He was the A’s full-time SS 2010-2012. He has played in nine postseason games, going 4 for 15.
