After conducting a “bullpen game” on Tuesday night, the Yankees have added a fresh arm prior to Wednesday night’s contest.
The Yankees announced that they have recalled Chance Adams from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Adams will take the roster spot of Stephen Tarpley, who was optioned to the minor leagues after last night’s victory over the Baltimore Orioles.
Adams, 24, has made five appearances out of the bullpen for the Yankees this season. The right-hander has allowed 11 runs over his 14 innings of work.
Tarpley appeared in last night’s contest, allowing two runs over two innings of work. The left-hander needed 51 pitches to get six outs, so it isn’t a surprise that the Yankees optioned him in order to add a fresh arm to the bullpen.
This might not be the only roster move that the Yankees make today. With Gleyber Torres dealing with a “core injury,” it’s possible that the 22-year-old All-Star may land on the injured list. If that’s the case, the Bronx Bombers will have to add a player to take his spot on the active roster.
