MLB: The pitcher that the Yankees signed in 2020 and is getting ready to finally make his debut with New York

Minor league spring training is underway, and players not on teams’ 40-man rosters are not affected by the ongoing lockout.

The former reliever of the Cardinals and Reds, Matt Bowman30 years old and 1.83 meters tall, is currently not a member of the union, as he is in the camp with the New York Yankees on an off-roster deal:

Bowman, who underwent a Tommy John surgery in September 2020, signed a two-year deal with the Yankees last offseason. After spending all of 2021 in rehab, he is fully recovered and in minor league camp.

Bowman logged 181 1/3 innings of relief from 2017-20, pitching to a 4.02/SIERA 3.86 ERA. When the lockout is over, the right-hander will try to carve out a mid-inning spot in the Yankees’ bullpen.

I am a fan of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and all Mexican baseball in general. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterruptedly since 2009), signatures of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, although as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I have baseball in my veins. Degree in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and a reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I arrived at El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and a few days later, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. This is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
