Yankees steal Pirates’ hard-throwing righty..... again!

November 18, 2022 10:27PM
The Yankees nabbed yet another hard-throwing Pirates right-hander.

The team claimed Junior Fernandez — and his sinker that averaged 98.7 mph last year — off waivers on Friday.

Fernandez, 25, had a 2.41 ERA in 16 games between the Cardinals (13) and the Pirates (3). He’s made 50 big-league appearances since 2019 with a 5.17 ERA. Fernandez relies mostly on his sinker, but his slider had an exceptional whiff rate of 44% last season.
