The Yankees have just acquired INF Brendan Ryan from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for a player to be named later.
While Brendan Ryan is not known for any offensive contribution, with a .192 average three home runs and 21 RBI, he is known for his exceptional defense. He has a career fielding percentage of .978 at shortstop.
This acquisition can provide more reliable defense in place of Eduardo Nunez, who made one error on the scoreboard tonight. Nunez has 12 errors this season. It is unclear what this means for the status of Derek Jeter.
