MLB Trade Rumors: Why Yankees Dropped Nathan Eovaldi And Several Other Without Trade Or Claims?
The New York Yankees are on a roll clearing out their roster of players. The Yankees have been making space for younger players after releasing veteran players from the team.
Among the veterans who were released are Nathan Eovaldi together with Joe Mantiply and Nick Rumbelow. All of them played as pitchers for the team.
Since his MLB career, Eovaldi's release from the Yankees saw his first opportunity to be signed to the highest bidder in the league. He has been injured with a right elbow inflammation but this does not seem to bother several teams who are looking forward to signing him.
Eovaldi was picked by the Los Angeles Dodgers as the eleventh draft during the 2008 MLB draft but his stock dropped after he had a Tommy John Surgery. In 2012, he moved over to the Miami Marlins after he was traded off for Hanley Ramirez and Randy Choate.
Just two years after he signed with the New York Yankees, he was once again traded off to the team. He went 14-3 with a 4.20 ERA before feeling an elbow inflammation.
According to MLB Trade Rumors, the Yankees moved to release Mantiply was a surprise as he has just been cleared off just ten days before he was designated. For Rumbelow, he went off early in 2016 and had to undergo TJ procedure all by himself.
On the other hand, the Yankees have made it clear that they are interested in getting Aroldis Chapman once more. Ray Negron of the NY Sports Day talked to Chapman about the possibility of him going back to Yankees and this is what he had to say "The organization treated me first class. And the fans were like no other."
He said he would love to be a Yankee again. It looks like the tie up between Chapman and the Yankees are clear. What's lacking is just the signing of papers.
