Luis Cessa avoids arbitration

Luis Cessa agreed to a one-year, $1.05 million contract with the Yankees, avoiding arbitration.

Fantasy Impact

Cessa had a solid 2020 campaign, posting a 3.32 ERA in over 20 innings of work. While not fantasy relevant, he figures to play a relatively large role in the Yankees' bullpen.

Luis Cessa (COVID-19) activated off injured list

The Yankees activated Luis Cessa (COVID-19) off the injured list Wednesday morning.

Fantasy Impact

Cessa missed the first two weeks of the season following a positive COVID-19 test. He'll rejoin the team prior to Wednesday's doubleheader against the Phillies.

Luis Cessa (COVID-19) remains at Yankees alternate site

Luis Cessa (COVID-19) remains at the Yankees alternate training site.

Fantasy Impact

The good news is Cessa is getting ready to go. He threw a 40-pitch bullpen on Saturday and could be game ready this week. He's still unsure when he might rejoin the team, however.

Luis Cessa not included on the Yankee's Opening Day roster

Luis Cessa remains on the COVID-19 injured list and is not part of the Yankees' initial 30-man roster according to the team's website.

Fantasy Impact

Cessa returned to the team Saturday after clearing intake protocol, but he has yet to be removed from the injured list and is not part of the Opening Day bullpen. The right-hander threw a 31-pitch bullpen session Monday that reportedly went well, so he's likely close to being game-ready.

Luis Cessa appears to be ready to rejoin the Yankees

Luis Cessa (illness) appears to be headed to New York to rejoin the Yankees, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.

Fantasy Impact

Cessa was placed on the 10-day injured list July 8 as a result of testing positive for COVID-19, though he was reportedly asymptomatic. The 28-year-old righty will have to be cleared once he arrives and does not look like he will be ready for Opening Day.
