The Yankees would have contacted these five relievers

The New York Yankees have made significant additions this offseason, aiming to improve their lineup (Juan José Soto), outfield depth (Alex Verdugo, Trent Grisham), and starting rotation (Marcus Stroman). However, one thing they haven’t been able to do until now is add a reliever to their Major League roster.

MLB Network analyst Jon Heyman, writing for the New York Post, talked about five relievers who talked to the Yankees in the winter: Dominicans Héctor Neris and Wandy Peralta, Keynan Middleton, Ryan Brasier, and Phil Maton.

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reported last week that the Bronx Bombers were among the finalists to land Neris, while MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch discussed the club’s talks with Peralta and Middleton, who wore the striped uniform last year.

Brasier and Maton are two new names in the group. Brasier, 36, spent six seasons with the Red Sox before being released in May after posting a 7.29 ERA in 21 innings. But his fate changed a lot after his arrival at the Dodgers. The right-hander has allowed just three earned runs in 38.2 innings of work in Los Angeles. He struck out 38 opponents, walked 10, and allowed just one home run that season.

Maton, 30, posted a 4.76 earned run average with a 1.41 WHIP in his first five years in the Major Leagues. But in the last two seasons with the Astros, he had a 3.42 ERA and 1.18 WHIP, appearing in 65 games each year. The right-hander limited opponents to a.207 batting average and.333 slugging percentage in 66 innings in 2023.
