Cool! The Yankees made a minor move that could eventually be a major one!

Tyler Lyons's contract was purchased by the Yankees and he's coming over!  That comes from a tweet out of Scranton. Check it out:

OK and so you see over news there too.  Fine, but let's talk about Lyons for a second:

Yanks go Yard writes:

"the Bombers took a flyer on another left-hander, this time signing Tyler Lyons, whom the Yanks originally drafted in the 10th round of the 2009 draft. Lyons, instead, returned to Oklahoma State.... 

Although Lyons only appeared in three games for the Pirates this season and scuffled to the tune of an 11.25 ERA... 

A mainstay in the St. Louis Cardinals bullpen from 2015-17, Lyons threw 162 innings while maintaining a 3.33 ERA... 

Should Lyons rediscover the form he exhibited in 2017 especially, when he notched a career-best 4-1 record, 2.83 ERA, 11.3 K/9 and 0.5 HR/9 in 50 appearances, his two remaining years of arbitration could be enticing enough for the Yankees to keep him around. Naturally, that’s a big if until proven otherwise."

A lot of info there, a lot to digest, but the main thing is this kid's a lefty, he's young and could prove to be a good move by the Yankees. I'm excited, you know how much I love lefties.

Nice work, Cash.  Go Yanks!

Happy Saturday everyone!
