Yankees select contract of Ryan Bollinger from Trenton

 

The Yankees have a roster spot open until newly acquired Lance Lynn arrives, so they decided to fill it with left-handed starter Ryan Bollinger ahead of today’s game.

Drafted in 2009 in the 47th round by the Phillies, Bollinger spent three seasons in the minors and made it as high as Single-A. He left the MLB in 2014, opting to play in independent leagues in Canada and Australia through 2017.

The Yankees gave the 27-year old a minor league contract, and he has split time between Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and Trenton this season. With the RailRiders, Bollinger made two starts going 0-1 with a 4.00 ERA. The southpaw has several more innings logged with Trenton, as he is 5-4 with a 4.86 ERA.

Bollinger will likely be with the Yankees for a day or two until Lynn is officially added to the 25-man roster. Bollinger will likely serve as an emergency bullpen arm.
