Yankees Re-Sign Diego Moreno, Begin Adding AAA Depth

The New York Yankees have already re-signed Domingo German to a minor league deal after letting him slip off the 40 man roster and the team was at it again when they re-signed right-handed starting pitching prospect Diego Moreno. Moreno made his Major League debut this season and pitched exceptionally well out of the bullpen before an injury ended his 2015 season. Moreno will likely begin the 2016 season back in Scranton with the RailRiders serving as a starting pitcher and will only be one Scranton Shuttle phone call away from the Bronx.

The Yankees had a plan coming into this offseason and they are starting to show their hand a bit with recent moves and signings. Justin Wilson was traded to the Detroit Tigers for two starting pitchers, Luis Cessa and Chad Green, that will likely start out the season in Triple-A and now Moreno will join them. Triple-A depth is being added for insurance purposes as the team looks likely to fully take advantage of their 40 man roster once again next season, especially with their bullpen and the revolving door.
