Yankees pick up Josh Outman in trade with Indians

The New York Yankees have added another bullpen arm acquiring John Outman from the Clevand Idians.

Outman has been pitching at Triple-A Columbus since being kicked off the Indians 40-man roster in late June but now becomes a bullen option with the Yankees. The Indians will get either a player to be named later or cash.

Outman’s numbers offer a mixed bag. He owns a 3.28 ERA anda 1.54 WHIP but the bigger concern is his 24/16 K/BB ratio in just 24 2/3 innings of work this year.

Left handed batters have a career .188/.257/.287 line against the 29-year-old left hander.
