Yankees Release Reliever Andrew Schwaab

Over the weekend, the Yankees released relief pitcher Andrew Schwaab from the High-A Tampa roster.

The 25-year old un-drafted free-agent was signed in 2015 and had some bright moments in the system over the last two seasons. Schwaab fanned 61 batters in 52 innings while holding the opposition to a .229 mark in his first full-season in 2016. Since then, the righty had yielded a .258 batting average in 2017 and was yielding a .278 mark in the Florida State League in 21 games for Tampa this season.

In 179 career minor league innings in the system, Schwaab had complied a 15-11 mark with a 3.37 ERA; he had fanned 193 and walked 75 in 133 appearances.
