Yankees release roster update

Jhony Brito tosses 5 2/3 innings, allowing four hits, two runs and striking out two against the A's

Jhony Brito suffered an unjust defeat in Oakland, allowing only two runs in 5.2 solid innings of play. Unfortunately, the offense did not support him against the disappointing pitching team of the A’s. Brito’s demotion is not solely due to poor performance; it is more to ensure that unnecessary cuts are not made to the 40-man roster. The Yankees will need a fifth pitcher for Sunday, July 2nd, and they can call up Randy Vásquez, who has similar abilities, at that time and make a move in the bullpen.

The official transaction is announced in the Yankees’ tweet below.

New York Yankees fans eagerly await the return of Ian Hamilton and the possible addition of Randy Vásquez as the fifth pitcher to strengthen the team. Although Jhony Brito’s demotion may seem unfair, the decision aims to ensure roster flexibility and avoid unnecessary cuts.

With the season underway, changes in the bullpen are common to maximize the team’s performance. The Yankees are determined to overcome challenges and continue striving for success this season.
