Yankees: Injustice? NYY assigns reliever who did a very good job and even saved

The New York Yankees announced a roster change between Thursday’s doubleheader games against the Houston Astros. Veteran right-handed reliever Ryan Weber was designated for assignment

Weber, 31, 6-foot-1, has been on and off the roster all season, and this is the third time the Yankees have designated him for assignment this year. In the previous two instances, he cleared waivers and stayed with the team, and was later drafted back to the GL:

Among those transactions, pitched 7 2/3 innings (three hits, one run) in the major leagues with a 1.17 ERA. His strikeout rate of 7.7% is very low, but he is limited to a minuscule 3.8% walk rate and gets ground balls at a decent 60.9% rate. He also pitched 24 2/3 Triple-A innings on the year, posting a 2.55 ERA, 18.8% strikeout rate, 1% walk rate and 47.4% ground ball rate.

The Yankees will have a week to trade him, put him through waivers or release him. If he clears waivers, he’ll have the right to decline an outright assignment and elect free agency, but he could stay with the Yankees, depending on precedent.

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.

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.
