With a depth issue in the Yankees bullpen, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman didn’t hold back when revealed to MLB Network Radio the team was looking for right-handed relief.
“We lined up a lot of moves this winter to give ourselves a really deep bullpen,” Cashman said. “Some of which have really paid dividends. Others, recently with the designation of David Carpenter, haven’t. So, I need to probably find a right-handed arm. Not probably, I do need to find a right-handed arm for the bullpen here at some point. We have Miller, Betances, Wilson, Shreve, Lindgren, Capuano and Esmil Rogers as the long man.
“Really, outside of Dellin Betances there’s only one right-handed arm out there and he’s the long man, so I’ve got a number of lefties out there in Wilson and Shreve and Lindgren that all can get righties out. At least that’s the benefit of those guys, so it’s not as much of a pressing issued, but I certainly would love to get an arm that Carpenter I think is, but it’s just not here in New York.”
