New York Yankees Release Talented Young Pitcher

An intriguing name joining free agency.

The New York Yankees have released pitcher Nelvin Correa.

Correa made his Double-A debut this past season and proceeded to record an impressive 1.31 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 43 strikeouts across 48 innings, split between High-A and Double-A. He made 33 relief appearances, converted four saves and held a 2-2 record.

For his minor-league career, the twenty-five-year-old holds a strong 2.61 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 240 strikeouts over 261.2 innings of work. 

There should be plenty of teams interested in the young pitcher.
