Corey Kluber is the ace the Yankees need

Corey Kluber is the difference maker and impact arm the Yankees need atop their rotation.  In 2017 and 2018, Yankee fans wished ace-like status on Luis Severino, but his inconsistencies have left him just short of owning the name.  Kluber, 32, has been the definition of consistent for the Cleveland Indians, winning 18+ games four out of the last five years and winning 20 games in 2018 for the first time in his career. Kluber has posted an ERA below 3.50 every season since 2014, and has struck out at least 220 hitters in the same span. Kluber keeps getting better, and is not showing any signs of regression. Kluber is an ace, the ace the Yankees need.

BBB Top Prospect Countdown #27: Cale Coshow

Cale Coshow, a 13th round pick in the 2013 draft, comes in at #27 on our prospect list. The 23 year old was born in Edmond, Oklahoma and attended Oklahoma Christian University which is located in his hometown of Edmond. Coshow was one of two players from Oklahoma Christian University to be drafted in 2013 as teammate Chris Burgess was drafted in the 26th round by the Phillies.
After being drafted by the Yankees in 2013, Coshow made his professional debut that summer with Low-A Staten Island where he pitched in 15 games, four starts, and a 3.76 ERA while going 0-2. In 2015 Coshow, across three levels, had a 9-5 record with a 2.45 ERA 33 games and 15 starts. Coshow finished the season in Double-A where he pitched to a 3.51 ERA in six starts.

While Coshow has been an occasional starter in the minors, I expect him to contribute in the big leagues as a reliever. Throughout the minor leagues, Coshow has been a better pitcher as a reliever and that is most likely where he will have the most success moving forward. Coshow will most likely start the 2016 season in either Double-A or Triple-A and don’t be surprise if he ends up punching a ticket to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre-Bronx Shuttle.
