Massive Free Agent Signing Revealed! #YankeesRevolution #MLBFreeAgentSensation



The New York Yankees are focused on bolstering their pitching depth by exploring unconventional avenues beyond pursuing high-priced free agents like Jordan Montgomery or seeking trades for Dylan Cease. While those remain their primary goals, they recognize the need to diversify and improve overall pitching strength by tapping into lesser-known options that could yield beneficial outcomes or maximize their potential.

To address this, the Yankees recently revealed a strategic move: the signing of RHP Cody Poteet to a one-year Major League contract, as announced on Friday via their Twitter account.

Poteet, despite being in the baseball scene for some time, has been hampered by injuries and inconsistency throughout his career. A significant elbow surgery in 2022 sidelined him for much of the following year. Formerly with the Miami Marlins, he was outrighted to the minor leagues in late 2022 and later signed a minor league deal with the Kansas City Royals, where he didn’t feature in the MLB but showcased promise with a 0.00 ERA in two innings.

Now in good health, Poteet’s signing with the Yankees signifies a major league opportunity and secures him a spot on the 40-man roster. While his MLB appearances have been limited (totaling 58.2 innings), he holds a reasonable 4.45 ERA and displays potential for further improvement.

Primarily adaptable as a starter, the bullpen might be his more extended-term position, although the Yankees haven’t explicitly outlined his role yet. Nevertheless, this move represents a valuable acquisition for New York’s pitching roster.
