Yankees have options for closer off his roster; Roberto Osuna tops the list

Yankees have options for closer off his roster Roberto Osuna

New York Yankees has a new problem in its operation in the MLB 2021, since now does not have a trusted closer that he can get on the mound to achieve the victories of the matches. That is why the ‘Mules’ would seek the services of a specialist pitcher in this department and between several possibilities Roberto Osuna would top the list.

In the last hours it was announced that Aaron Boone would be nowhere near eliminating Zack Britton from his position as closer for the New York Yankees due to the poor performance he has had in the ninth inning.

The ‘Mules’ have a couple of pitcher options on their roster that could go on to fill this role, but there are also some in the market that could attract the attention of the organization and take their services.

One of these and who would head the list is the Mexican Roberto Osuna, known for his work in the Houston Astros and who is currently ‘breaking’ it in the Mexican Baseball League (LMB) with Diablos Rojos del México.

The Sinaloa native managed to have 38 saves in the 2019 MLB season, his last at the time he pitched for the Houston Astros. Plus, his 2.77 ERA could be of use to worried New York Yankees.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social media, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
