Albert Abreu recorded the final two outs of Saturday's 7-5 win over the White Sox to earn his first career save.
Abreu has appeared in 14 games this season, posting a 4.43 ERA and 1.16 WHIP with a 23:11 K:BB in 22 1/3 innings. The 25-year-old reliever will probably not see many more chances for a save as he is behind Chad Green and Zach Britton in the bullpen and regular closer Aroldis Chapman should be off the IL next week.
Albert Abreu has been optioned to the Yankees' alternate training site according to the team's Twitter feed.
Abreu will not be starting the season with the Yankees despite being a part of the 60-man summer roster. The right-hander is unlikely to log significant playing time this season given the fact that he has yet to pitch above the Double-A level.
Albert Abreu has been included on the Yankees' summer camp roster according to the team's website.
Abreu made the roster more than likely as a bullpen arm for the team. Abreu has the arsenal to start, but command and control issues have led to speculation that he may be best suited to a relief role. The 24-year-old righty will not have much of a fantasy impact.
