Oh yeah, we signed somebody yesterday


Though I have to wonder why. After he exercised his opt-out clause with the Red Sox, the Yanks picked up pitcher Runelvys Hernandez. Dude had some mildly impressive minor league numbers in his early 20s, but his milb.com profile makes that look a bit inaccurate. It has him at 29 years old, while The Baseball Cube has him at 26. I’m guessing the former is correct, which would mean he put up decent numbers in the low minors in his mid-20s.

I’m going to throw a brick through my bay window if he makes the MLB roster.

  1. Steve A says:

    Minor league roster filler would be my guess. With the callups and injuries at AAA, the Scranton roster is a little thin. Plus, could he be any better/worse than Matt DeSalvo as a spot starter?

  2. Mike A. says:

    Yes, he could be worse than DeSalvo. MUCH worse.

  3. Mike says:

    Not to mention the destruction he will serve to the buffet table after the games.
