The New York Yankees didn’t get any relievers on the MLB Network Top 10 list, but they still have one of the best and deepest bullpens in baseball. Lou Trivino, who arrived at Yankees Stadium along with Frankie Montas, thinks the current Yankees bullpen is among the finest ones he has ever seen while in the Bronx. Last season, the Yankees bullpen had the third-best ERA.

Trivino is happy to see the Yankees bullpen this season. According to him:

“There’s a ton of talent, gotta be some of the most talented arms I’ve ever played with. The only thing that rivals that were in 2018 when there was [Blake] Treinen, myself, [Jeurys] Familia, the list goes on. There is a ton of talent here.”

The pitcher continued:

“You got Holmes, who’s up to 102 [mph] with like 23 inches of run or something stupid. It’s a very, very talented bullpen and on top of that, a very talented starting rotation. I think we’re going to be very dangerous for the MLB and we’re going to make some waves.”

In recent years, the Yankees bullpen has acquired a lot of players to take pressure off their starters. However, Trivino also points out that the Yankees now boast a starting rotation that ranks as the top in MLB.

The Yankees bullpen members

The New York Yankees bullpen remains strong despite the departure of a few well-known faces. During last year’s 99-win season, their bullpen was one of their best parts.

In their bullpen right now, they have:

These pitchers in the Yankees bullpen might not have as many famous players as some other teams, but they have a lot of good players. In 2022, Clay Holmes was an All-Star. In just 51 innings, Michael King led the Yankees bullpen in strikeout rate and fWAR (1.7). Wandy Peralta only had 0.32 HR/9, which is very low. Trivino left 83.9% of the runners on base. There is a lot of skill, and now the relievers don’t have to work as hard. For the rest of the AL East, this is bad news.
