The Yankees announced today that they have outrighted right-hander Adonis Rosa. He cleared waivers after recently being designated for assignment.
Rosa, 24, was one of several hurlers cycled into the Yanks’ pen this year before being dropped from the 40-man roster. It’d be hard to glean much of anything from his lone appearance, in which he averaged a marginal 90 mph on his fastball but did manage some swings and misses (15.6%) in a two-inning sample.
More broadly, Rosa has shown more in his 93 career Triple-A innings. He’s a 3.58 ERA pitcher at the highest level of the minors, albeit with an unremarkable combination of 7.0 K/9 against 2.1 BB/9
