MLB hot stove: Yankees pursuing free-agent reliever Adam Ottavino, report says
The Yankees are after yet another relief pitcher.
According to Fancred Sports, New York is pursuing free-agent reliever Adam Ottavino who was one of the most dominant pitchers out of the bullpen in MLB last season.
Even with Yankees about to add Britton (finalizing) they are continuing to pursue Ottavino @Ken_Rosenthal 1st on Britton being close
The Yankees reportedly agreed to a deal with Zach Britton on Saturday, but that reportedly will not keep them from going after Ottavino who pitched with the Rockies last year.
Ottavino struck out 112 batters in 77 2/3 innings for Colorado last season and posted 2.6 WAR while going 6-4 in 75 appearances.
The 33-year-old’s sinker/slider combo is one of the best in baseball which has to be seen to be believed.

The Yankees lost right-handed reliever David Robertson to the Phillies in free agency recently so Ottavino would fit in nicely to his role in the later innings for New York.
