Luis Cessa is on fire with the Reds while the Yankees need relief

The Mexican pitcher Luis Cessa he’s on fire from the mound as a reliever playing for the Cincinnati Reds; on the other hand, the New York Yankees are short when it comes to relievers.

The Yankees from New York they traded Luis Cessa with the idea of ​​bringing better relievers to the team; They even sent him along with Justin Wilson in exchange for a player to be named later who was ultimately a minor league player.

Nicaraguan Jonathan Loaisiga has no return date, Aroldis Chapman continues to struggle, and only Dominican Joely Rodríguez has been consistent coming out of the bullpen in the Bronx Mules’ last 10 games.

Luis Cessa Since joining the Reds, he is 1-1 with a 1.76 ERA in 15.1 innings with 11 strikeouts. In his last 7 games, he has a 1.35 ERA with 5 strikeouts in 6.1 innings.

Without a doubt, Cessa was hurt by leaving the Bronx Mules suddenly and in exchange for a “player to be named later”, however better things have come and he remains firm with his gratitude:

I will never forget 2016, the year I first wore the striped uniform, the one that every player dreams of wearing. Standing in the center of the Yankee Stadium diamond is inexplicable. My first victories, my first strikeouts in the Major Leagues were there, throughout 6 seasons I learned, matured and became a better player and person. I have a lot on my mind at the moment, but above all thanks to my colleagues who many of them became family, to my coaches, trainners, masseurs, clubbies and cooks I thank them. I tell the fans that I always gave my best, they are not easy to please, I owe them that title # 28. Thank you YANKEES for making my dream come true, I am going to be the Mexican with the most seasons in the history of the team, I am leaving with joys and moments that I will keep forever. Finally I thank God because without Him, nothing is possible, now I put myself in your hands for the new chapter that begins in my life “
