The Yankees will be sending an additional pitcher to the Arizona Fall League this year, in the person of right-hander Cody Carroll.
The 24-year old reliever was originally drafted in the 22nd round of the 2015 draft out of Southern Mississippi and has played three seasons in the organization. This past season he spent the majority of his time in the Eastern League where he was 2-5 with a 2.66 ERA in 26 relief outings, striking out 59 batters in 47 1/3 innings pitched.
Prior to joining the Thunder on May 27, he appeared in 13 games for the Tampa Yankees where he was 1-0 with a 2.25 ERA and 30 strikeouts in 20 innings of work.
In his three-year career, Carroll owns an 8-10 record with a 2.73 ERA and 205 strikeouts in 184 1/3 innings pitched. He is joining fellow Yankee pitchers Justus Sheffield and Dillon Tate in the AFL as well as infielders Thairo Estrada, Kyle Holder and outfielder Estevan Florial.
