The Yankees have their first new signing of the season in a boost to their defensive setup that lacked consistency. A post from Talkin’ Yanks confirmed it and read, “The Yankees have signed Yerry De Los Santos, a sinker-heavy reliever who recorded a 3.33 ERA in 22 games with Pittsburgh last season.”

With this, the relief pitcher will move away from Pittsburgh after spending two seasons there. Debuting in 2022, the 25-year-old has played 48 games in the MLB so far. During this period, Yerry has claimed 44 strikeouts at a WHIP of 1.26.

Now, at the Bronx, Yerry will look to change it and play a crucial role in the rotation. However, there is some clarity on his role, and the world has to wait on what terms the Yankees have signed him. But it seems fans are happy, irrespective of that.
