A minor league contract with the Yankees has been reported for baseball player Chasen Shreve on MLB.com. Shreve dropped hints on Instagram Friday that he would be rejoining the Yankees.

From 2015 to 2018, the left-handed pitcher played for the Yankees. In exchange for Luke Voit and $1 million in international bonus pool money, he was traded to the Cardinals. In 2020 and earlier this season, Shreve played for the Mets.

After posting a 6.49 ERA over 26 1/3 innings, the Mets released Shreve in July. Shreve was pounded for 10 runs in the final 5 1/3 innings. Shreve has allowed six homers in 26 1/3 innings, a problem that has plagued him throughout his nine-year career.

Shreve has been effective when on the field, but his home run total and his command have both been problematic. Shreve was among the best in the league at limiting hard contact last season, despite having mediocre strikeout and walk rates.

Shreve’s 3.92 ERA in 174 2/3 innings with the Yankees reflected his career ups and downs. He’s the second veteran left-hander the Bronx Bombers have added in two days. The Yankees are adding southpaw depth ahead of the postseason and after Aroldis Chapman’s injury.
