YANKS OFFICIALLY SIGN J.C. ROMERO
The Yanks have signed Romero to a minor-league deal. He was just released by the Nationals earlier today. Romero began his season with the Philadelphia Phillies, but was released in June. He then signed with the Nationals…who then released him this morning.
Romero is very good if they use him solely to get lefties out. Over his career, lefties have hit only .215 AVG, and they have a very meager .290 SLG% against Romero.
This should provide some left-handed relief depth that the Yanks so dearly need with Feliciano and Marte out.
