In his lone start for the qualifying week last Wednesday on the road against Altoona, Bollinger tossed seven innings of one-hit ball with two walks and three strike outs. In 14 starts for Trenton this season, the lefty is 7-4 with a 4.18 ERA.

After pitching the entirety of the 2017 campaign internationally overseas, the 27-year old southpaw inked a minor league deal with the Yankees this past winter. In his first campaign in the system, the organization has placed them on the 40-man roster and has promoted him to the big leagues on two occasions, though he is yet to appear in a game.
