Yankees Sign Pitcher; Has Not Pitched Since 2019 Due To Tommy John Surgery

Finally ready for a return?

The New York Yankees have signed pitcher Matt Bowman to a minor-league contract.

Bowman has not pitched anywhere over the last three seasons as he continues to recover from Tommy John surgery.

The last time the thirty-one-year-old pitched in the majors was in 2019, with the Cincinnati Reds, where he posted a solid 3.66 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, with 25 strikeouts 32 innings of work.

There's a chance Bowman is ready to help the Yankees later this year in a low-leverage relief role.

For his career, the right-handed pitcher holds a 4.02 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, with 149 strikeouts across 181.1 innings. He spent the first three seasons of his career with the St. Louis Cardinals before spending one with the Reds.
