Yankees Call Up Jose DePaula

The New York Yankees continued their bullpen shuffle today, adding yet another arm in lefty middle reliever Jose DePaula.

DePaula has yet to pitch a major league game, but the Dominican has been lights out this season for Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre. In 17 and 2/3 innings pitched, DePaula has a 1.53 ERA with 8 strikeouts and just three walks.

To clear way, fellow reliever Jose Ramirez will likely┬ábe sent back down to Scranton. He’s struggled this season, giving up five runs in just three innings for a disastrous 15.00 ERA.

The Yankees have been forced to reshuffle their bullpen as of late due to injuries and poor pitching performances. The latest blow was a 2/3 of an inning outing by Nathan Eovaldi, exhausting the bullpen.
