Ohtani who? Yankees Rookie Phenom Gleyber Torres making his case for ROY

Give credit to the Yankee front office; the Yankees have arguably the best present and future out of any team in baseball. Brian Cashman and his crew turned around the farm system seemingly overnight, producing the Baby Bombers we’ve grown to love. The past three years the Yankees have trotted out Rookie of the year caliber players, Gary Sanchez was runner-up in 2016, Aaron Judge was the unanimous winner in 2017, and Gleyber Torres is making his case in 2018.

Yankees recall RHP Ronald Herrera from Double-A Trenton prior to Wednesday’s game

After CC Sabathia’s unfortunate injury news, the Yankees decided to call up another arm to be apart of the big league staff. Rather than their typical Scranton Shuttle move, they chose to recall a RHP from AA Trenton named Ronald Herrera.

Herrera was acquired by the Yankees prior to the 2016 season from the San Diego Padres in the trade that shipped infielder Jose Pirela out west.

The 22-year-old deservedly earned his call up by posting videogame-like numbers for the Thunder. Working primarily as a starter, Herrera posted a 7-0 record with a miniscule 1.07 ERA to begin his 2017 campaign. Herrera may be used as a spot starter for Sabathia’s next turn in the rotation or could aid the Yankees tonight after Sabathia only was able to give the Yankees four innings before his injury forced Girardi to turn to his relievers.
