Robertson, who took over as closer after Mariano Rivera‘s retirement, had a very respectable 2014, picking up 39 saves in 44 tries, which ranked him third in the AL in that category. He had a 3.08 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 96 strikeouts in 64.1 innings pitched. In his career with the Yankees, Robertson posted a 2.81 ERA with 524 strikeouts in 393.1 innings.
After Andrew Miller was signed over the weekend, Yankee fans wondered if maybe the team would re-sign Robertson and have Miller help set up, along with Dellin Betances. Guess that’s not happening now!
We’ll definitely have more reaction to this move after everyone else wakes up.…
