The Yankees are in a groove, this is true, but why not add an arm?

It's being reported that Danny Salazar is now coming to the Yankees and it's gonna be a minor league deal.

MLB Trade Rumors writes:

"Salazar, 32, was signed as an international free agent by Cleveland back in 2006. He climbed up the ranks of the minors and made his MLB debut in 2013. He had a tremendous four-year run from his debut through 2016, making 85 starts and throwing 484 1/3 innings. His ERA was 3.72 in that time, along with a 26.7% strikeout rate, 8.2% walk rate and 41.7% ground ball rate. He made the American League All-Star team in the last year of that stretch."

After that he has surgery on a hurt shoulder. in 2019 he had low velocity and a groin situation. In other words, it's been one thing after another.  So, if you're asking why a minor league deal? That's why.

Anyway... welcome to the Yanks Danny. I hope you can find your mojo.
