NEW YORK – Someone had to go.
To make room for starting pitcher Luis Severino, the Yankees appointed player Breivic Valera for a pre-game appointment Tuesday against the Yankees Angels.
Severino returned from the 60-day early roster after missing all season with soreness on the right cuff, which turned into a right-arm latency of Grade 2. The 25-year-old right made his first start of the season. In February, he agreed to a four-year, $ 40 million contract extension with the Yankees.
The Yankees claimed Valerie to give up the Giants in May.
Valera was one of the many bodies the Yankees needed while releasing MLB- enroll 30 players on the injury list this season.
