Yankees Call Up Pitcher


The New York Yankees have recalled pitcher JP Sears to serve as the twenty-seventh man for Thursday's doubleheader against the Astros.

Sears will most likely operate as a bulk reliever in one of the two games.

The twenty-six-year-old left-handed pitcher has been fantastic this season, posting a 1.42 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and 14 strikeouts in 19 innings. 

The rookie pitcher will likely generate trade interest from teams in the next two weeks, but it's yet to be determined if the Yankees would be willing to part with him in a trade to acquire a bigger piece.

Sears is currently the Yankees' number twenty-five ranked prospect.
