Hi, what are you looking for?

Kyle Roller is at a cross-roads. Will he make it with another organization? (Cheryl Pursell)


Yankees Release MiLB 1B Kyle Roller

The New York Yankees have released minor league first baseman Kyle Roller.  Roller, 27, spent all of 2015 with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders of the International League where he hit just .232 over 123 games during the regular season.

The power-hitting left-handed bat slugged 14 homeruns for the RailRiders to go along with 19 doubles and 14 triples.  The 2014 season was his break out year after hitting an even .300 between then Double-A Trenton Thunder and Triple-A Scranton.  During that season he hit 26 homeruns with 30 doubles and 3 triples.

With Greg Bird likely to return to Triple-A in 2016 to be the regular first baseman the move makes sense.
