New York Yankees Sign Pitcher After Impressive Performance

The New York Yankees have made an intriguing move by signing right-handed pitcher Jesús Liranzo to a minor league contract.

Liranzo, recently released by the Washington Nationals, now gets another opportunity in affiliated baseball.

He showcased his potential during his time with the Lancaster Barnstormers in the independent Atlantic League, impressing with a remarkable performance.

Over the course of eight appearances and 10 innings, Liranzo allowed just one run while recording an impressive 18/3 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

Despite not having reached the major leagues yet, the 28-year-old pitcher represents an intriguing and calculated risk for the Yankees, who view him as a promising prospect worth taking a chance on.

Over his minor-league career, Liranzo holds a 4.38 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, with 375 strikeouts across 324.1 innings and 212 appearances. Photo Credit: Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports
