The offseason is officially live and the New York Yankees have let it be known, with roster moves and the lively hopes of all their fans for a World Series and a title that remain elusive.

Of the first changes to the New Yorkers’ roster this fall, none refer to pitchers, while a catcher, a pair of outfielders and an infielder are affected.

According to a press report from the organization itself, this Friday the patrolman Tim locastro was selected from waivers by the Boston Red Sox, while a similar situation occurred with shortstop Andrew Velazquez, which went to the Los Angeles Angels organization.

One who is off the roster but stayed with the Bombers is the receiver Rob Brantly, which was forced down the Tripel-A, with the Scranton / Wilkes-Barre.

While the also gardener Greg Allen he was picked off waivers by the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Locastro (29) goes to his 4th organization in 6 seasons, after a very poor 2021 of 25 hits in 64 games (between Dbacks and Yankees) and line of 180/263/252 (AVE / OBP / SLG).

Velazquez (27), the youngest of the 4, gobbled 23 strikeouts in 67 official at-bats for New York, with a single walk, although he resolved personal records in several offensive categories and could still be an important piece in the not-so-future future. near.

Brantly’s presence should not go beyond a reserve catcher, since at 32 he has never managed to replicate the attractive debut he had with the Marlins in 2012, where he averaged 290/372/460.

Allen, chosen by Cleveland in the 6th round of the 2014 Draft, achieved the best frequencies of this quartet, scoring 270/417/432, but with a sample reduced to only 15 games, with 9 runs scored and 5 stolen bases. Perhaps the best piece the Yankees dropped from their roster.

Evidently those from the bronx opening space in their ranks in the face of a winter where they have to be aggressive and go shopping, at whatever cost is necessary.
