According to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, the Yankees have acquired left-hander Josh Outman from the Indians for cash considerations or a player to be named later. He’s expected to join the major league roster.
Outman had a 3.28 ERA and 24/16 K/BB ratio over 24 2/3 innings with the Indians this season prior to being designated for assignment in June. After passing through waivers, he was outrighted to Triple-A Columbus, where he had a 4.43 ERA over 23 appearances.
Outman owns a 4.49 ERA in the majors, but he has averaged 9.3 K/9 as a reliever and has held left-handed batters to a .188/.257/.287 batting line for his career. He could come in handy in a specialist role for the Bombers.
