Yankees claim Parker Bridwell from Angels

The Yankees today claimed RHP Parker Bridwell off waivers from the Los Angeles Angels.

Bridwell, 27, went 1-0 with a 17.55 ERA (6.2IP, 13ER) in five games (one start) with the Angels in 2018. He spent the majority of the season on the Minor League disabled list, but also made six starts with Triple-A Salt Lake, going 1-1 with an 8.68 ERA (28.0IP, 27ER). In 28 career appearances (21 starts) over parts of three Major League seasons with Baltimore (2016) and Los Angeles-AL (2017-18), he has gone 11-3 with a 4.60 ERA (131.0IP, 67ER) and 79K. In 2017, he went 10-3 with a 3.64 ERA (121.0IP, 49ER) in 21 games (20 starts), ranking second on the team in wins. The Hereford, Tex., native was originally selected by Baltimore in the ninth round of the 2010 First-Year Player Draft. He was traded from the Orioles to the Angels on 4/17/17 for cash considerations or a player to be named later.
