The Yankees added some pitching depth ahead of the waiver deadline on Sunday, acquiring Chaz Roe from the Marlins for cash considerations, Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald reports. With rosters expanding on Monday, Roe is expected to join the major league roster and serve out of the bullpen.

Roe, 27, made his major league debut last season with the Diamondbacks, posting a 4.03 ERA with a 24/13 K/BB ratio over 22 1/3 innings in the second half. The right-hander spent the entirety of the 2014 season at Triple-A New Orleans for the Marlins. He compiled a 3.66 ERA with a 72/21 K/BB ratio over 64 innings.

    “Yankees acquire PlayerX from the Marlins for cash considerations” is the most Yankees/Marlins trade possible.

    And this is a good thing how?

      Roe pitching to Trout, if the Yankees and Angels still play this year. Too bad Mike Salmon’s not still around.

        And, maybe Ralph Garr could be a coach in this?

        An all fish team, anybody?

    Why bother?

      I didn’t realize that you’d given up on the Jays with 30 games left. Why not go for that 2nd wildcard spot given the recent struggles of the A’s and the injuries to the Tigers? Hell, maybe the Captain can get one last sniff of the postseason.

        The season is not over. My comment was directed at NY.

        Your Jays trail the Yanks by 1.5 games and you feel that they shouldn’t bother, but your Jays should? Rosters expand tomorrow so why not add another arm? Is AA the only G.M. to not make a single move since the end of July? I heard all this talk about they didn’t need to make a move because EE was on his way back. Since his “triumphant” return, the team has responded with a 6-8 record.

    Someone should tell Cashman that the Yankees have a pretty good bullpen, although most likely on the tired side,what they really need is a couple of bats. One would think a good hint would have been last weekend when a pitcher with just under a five era holds them to one hit over seven innings. I thought last years team was anemic, but this years edition is right up there with them.

      If Mike Trout or Miggy get released on waivers I am sure that the Yankees will be all over it. Otherwise, where are all of these bats that you are so sure are up for grabs?

    Ok.

    So where in the order is he batting?

    Oh, wait. Never-mind.

    Go NY.

    I don’t even know who this guy is but I know he will be awesome for the yankees. Every scrub pitcher they acquire turns in to sandy koufax
