Official Yankees News: New York Yankees Confirm The Addition Of Two Top Experienced Stars To Bolster Squad Depth

**Yankees Add Two Left-Handed Relievers to Roster**

Ahead of their game against the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday, the New York Yankees made several roster adjustments following injuries to bullpen key players Ian Hamilton and Cody Poteet, intensifying the pressure as they enter a crucial part of the season.

Ian Hamilton is sidelined with a lat injury, and Cody Poteet has a triceps issue, keeping them out for several weeks. This development is particularly challenging with Gerrit Cole returning to the rotation. While Cole’s return is a boost, the bullpen’s depth will be tested with these new injuries.

To address these challenges, the Yankees have called up two pitchers to the major league roster. Clayton Andrews, a 27-year-old lefty, has been promoted despite a tough start in Triple-A, where he posted a 5.84 ERA over 24.2 innings. Known for his ground ball tendencies, Andrews has struggled with pitch location and has limited MLB experience, having pitched just 3.2 innings with the Milwaukee Brewers last season. He is also notable for being the shortest relief pitcher in baseball at 5’6″.


Additionally, Anthony Misiewicz, a 29-year-old left-hander, has been added to the roster. Misiewicz has more major league experience, with 114.2 innings pitched and a career ERA of 4.71. He has played for the Arizona Diamondbacks, Detroit Tigers, and briefly for the Yankees last season, recording a 3.38 ERA over 2.2 innings.

These moves are temporary as General Manager Brian Cashman looks ahead to the trade deadline at the end of July for more significant additions. The team is also optimistic about the returns of Lou Trivino and Scott Effross, who are recovering from injuries. However, with the current situation and the possibility of further injuries, Cashman may need to secure additional help to ensure the bullpen is strong enough for a deep playoff run.
