Yankees Acquire Chaz Roe From Miami For Cash

The New York Yankees have acquired Chaz Roe from the Miami Marlins for cash considerations before the August 31 trading deadline came and went. Roe is expected to be with the Yankees on Tuesday when they host the Boston Red Sox as rosters expand to 40 man rosters tomorrow. The Yankees will obviously have to make a 40 man roster move to accommodate Roe but New York has a few players that could be designated for assignment or transferred to the 60 day DL so the move shouldn't be an issue.

Roe is 27 years old and has posted a 3.66 ERA in Triple-A this season while striking out 10.13 K/9 in 64 IP in 2014. Roe spent time with the Arizona Diamondbacks major league club in 2013 and posted a 4.03 ERA in 22.1 innings.

This is going to further complicate the Yankees 40 man roster problems this season and next and will likely mean one other prospect that is currently in the Yankees system, Jacob Lindgren for example, will likely not be coming up. It's the Yankees way, bring in veterans and everyone elses trash and leave our deserving players in Triple-A. Disgusted, whatever.
