Yankees Claim Josh Spence

The Yankees have claimed another reliever. This time Josh Spence from the Padres.

Spence is only 24 years old, but has already appeared in 51 MLB games. In that time he's pitched to a 3.15 ERA while striking out over 9 hitters per 9 innings. However, Josh has also walked 5.4 batters per 9 innings, which is not a good number by any means. His batting line against was a big .302/.375/.395, but that came with a BABIP of .375. Taking his age into account, if Spence can regain some of the control he showed in the minors (he walked 2.8 per 9 there), then he could help the team out.
