Jose De Paula
RP,SP - FA
Hard throwing lefty Jose De Paula, whom the Yankees signed in the off-season, threw two scoreless innings on Saturday allowing one hit and collecting a strikeout.
Jose De Paula compiled a 4.21 ERA with the Giants Triple-A affiliate in Fresno in 2014. The Pacific Coast League is notoriously hitter friendly and his ERA was almost a half point below the league average. The Yankees appear to want De Paula to start and will give him the opportunity. He has minor league options so he will likely begin the year in Scranton, but could be another option for the Yankees as the summer gets long.
