The Yankees are for the most part done with trades and free agent signings this offseason.
However, they will be in attendance at a future showcase to get a glimpse of LHP Craig Breslow.
According to Peter Gammons, the Yankees are one of the 12-20 teams that will watch Breslow throw a showcase on January 23rd. Breslow was released from the Texas Rangers last August (Beslow didn’t pitch for the Rangers in a Major League game) and has been working on his mechanics and breaking ball.
Breslow’s best year was with the Boston Red Sox when he went 5-2 with a 1.81 ERA in 2013. Breslow was a key piece in the Red Sox championship run that season.
The Yankees aren’t thin when it comes to lefty-reliever depth; they currently have Aroldis Chapman, Chasen Shreve, Richard Bleier, Tommy Layne and Dietrich Enns on the 40-man roster. However, a glimpse at Breslow wouldn’t hurt, and if the Yankees are impressed then Breslow could be a good low-risk, high-reward signing.
