We all forget about Dellin Betances because the Yankees are clicking right now, but truth be told the Yankees will be a better team when they have Dellin back. Don't you think?

Great piece by Pinstripe Alley and I wanted to share some of it:

"...the Yankees need as many quality arms available as possible. Dellin Betances’ return, in particular, will prove instrumental in a deep postseason run...When healthy, the All-Star reliever has been one of the most dominant pitchers in the game...

As the season comes towards an end, the competition strengthens and weaknesses become more visible. The Yankees’ bullpen is already great with Adam Ottavino, Chad Green, Tommy Kahnle, and Aroldis Chapman picking up the slack, but a returning Betances adds another weapon. Imagine how the coaching staff could deploy that stacked bullpen. If there’s ever a situation where the starters have trouble, the Yankees could get five or six innings from their relievers. "

Here's the good news. Betances is on the fast track... he's almost back after missing 127 games this season.  NJ.com writes:

"Betances threw a bullpen on Sunday and is close to being cleared to face hitters. He’s expected to be off the IL and pitching for the Yankees in September."

I look forward to a bullpen with Betances.

Mark your calendar.
