**Yankees Release Former Top Draft Pick Josh Breaux**

TORONTO — The Yankees had high expectations for catching prospect Josh Breaux after selecting him in the second round of the 2018 MLB Draft.

In 2019, Breaux was ranked as the Yankees’ No. 15 prospect by MLB Pipeline, known for his raw power and strong arm behind the plate. However, over the years, Breaux gradually fell down the organization’s depth chart at catcher, leading to the Yankees releasing him on Saturday.

Breaux’s performance and injuries have been inconsistent in recent years, with this season being particularly difficult. He played only 11 games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, hitting .143 (5-for-35). Although he was briefly with the big-league club as a non-roster invitee this spring, he played with the RailRiders in April before being placed on the Yankees’ Development List in May.

The catcher position has become a strength for the Yankees at the upper levels of their farm system in recent years, with talents like Austin Wells, Ben Rice, and Agustin Ramirez emerging. Consequently, Breaux’s departure does not significantly impact the team.
