Yankees' Albert Abreu: Could make expanded roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu could potentially be part of the Yankees' expanded roster should a 2020 season take place, Greg Johnson of The Trentonian reports.

While it is unlikely that Abreu would make the big-league roster to begin the campaign, he could be placed on the taxi squad, allowing the Yankees to call him up if the need for a bullpen arm emerges. 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. That plan was briefly tested last season when the right-hander was transitioned to the bullpen for his final three appearances.

Yankees' Albert Abreu: Shows off heat in spring action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu averaged "about 98 mph" on his fastball in Grapefruit League play, Yankees vice president of baseball operations Tim Naehring stated in an interview with Meredith Marakovits of the YES Network on Wednesday.

In addition to the impressive fastball velocity, Abreu displayed a plus curveball and changeup, accoring to Naehring. The 24-year-old has posted solid strikeout numbers in the minors but has often struggled with his command as evidenced by a 91:53 K:BB over 96.2 innings at the Double-A level last season. Abreu will return to Trenton to begin the 2020 campaign after allowing three earned runs and posting a 4:2 K:BB over five Grapefruit League innings this spring.

Yankees' Albert Abreu: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu was optioned to Double-A Trenton on Monday.

Abreu made three Grapefruit League appearances, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out four in four innings. He'll return to Trenton, where he posted a 4.28 ERA in 23 games -- including 20 starts -- in 2019.

Yankees' Albert Abreu: Back from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu (shoulder) was reinstated from the 7-day injured list Tuesday.

Abreu landed on the MiLB injured list near the end of July due to a shoulder issue, but he's since returned to health and will be ready for action with Double-A Trenton moving forward. He owns a 3.81 ERA with 77 strikeouts over 82.2 innings this season with the Thunder.

Yankees' Albert Abreu: MRI on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu is slated to undergo an MRI on Wednesday after exiting his start for Double-A Trenton a night earlier with right biceps soreness, John Healy of reports.

The 23-year-old's fastball was reportedly clocked at just 89 miles per hour on his final pitch of the outing before he was pulled from the contest. The MRI should shed more light on the extent of Abreu's injury, but there's a good chance that he'll at least be shut down for at least a week in a best-case scenario. Over 82.2 innings at Trenton this season, Abreu has posted a 3.81 ERA and 1.62 WHIP.

Yankees' Albert Abreu: Exits with shoulder issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu was lifted from Tuesday's start at Double-A Trenton due to an apparent shoulder injury, Greg Johnson of the Trentonian reports.

Abreu threw 20 pitches before being removed from the contest. The extent of the injury is unknown at this time, so he'll be considered day-to-day until further notice.

Yankees' Albert Abreu: Beginning season at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu was optioned to Double-A Trenton on Sunday.

Abreu missed the start of last season after undergoing an appendectomy and posted a 4.16 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 65:29 K:BB in 13 starts at High-A Tampa. The 23-year-old finished the year with one start at Trenton and returns to the Thunder to begin the 2019 season.

Yankees' Albert Abreu: Nearing sim games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu (appendix) is expected to pitch in simulated games soon, Dan Martin of the New York Post reports.

The 22-year-old has been sidelined since undergoing an appendectomy in February. Abreu will likely need a few rehab starts to build back up to a starter's workload, so it seems like he's still a few weeks away from a full return to action.

Yankees' Albert Abreu: On DL at High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu (appendix) will open the season on the disabled list at High-A Tampa,'s Jim Callis reports.

He had an appendectomy in February, and the recovery time on that surgery typically isn't more than several weeks, so it's a bit of a surprise that he won't be ready to go for the start of the season. Abreu only logged 53.1 innings last season, plus a stint in the Arizona Fall League, so the Yankees may simply be holding him out because he wasn't going to be able to log a full season this year anyway. Once healthy, Abreu should have no problem mowing down High-A hitters (he has 46 innings under his belt at that level) and forcing a promotion to Double-A.

Yankees' Albert Abreu: Undergoes appendix surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu underwent surgery on his appendix Wednesday, which will likely keep him sidelined for the next few weeks, Brendan Kuty of reports.

The team hasn't released a timetable for the right-hander at this point in time but it's highly unlikely that he will still be on the shelf by early March. Abreu is one of the top prospects in the Yankees' system and was added to the 40-man roster in November to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. He has a good chance of beginning the 2018 campaign in Double-A Trenton but with spring training beginning Tuesday for pitchers and catchers, he will miss a little time in that regard. Expect an update on his status in the near future.

Yankees' Albert Abreu: Joins 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu was added to the 40-man roster Monday.

By adding Abreu to the 40-man roster, the Yankees will protect him from the Rule 5 draft. Abreu, who's just 22 years old and has a fastball that can hit 100 miles per hour, dealt with a shoulder injury during the 2017 season. However, he still reached High-A Tampa, where he posted a 4.19 ERA and 1.41 WHIP over nine games (34.1 innings).

Yankees' Albert Abreu: To return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu (shoulder) will return from his rehab assignment and start Sunday's game for High-A Tampa, Nick Flammia, the play-by-play announcer for the Tampa Yankees, reports.

Abreu, who has been rehabbing in the Gulf Coast League, struck out six over three shutout innings in his last rehab start. He has explosive stuff and was touching triple digits with his fastball earlier this year. If he can stay healthy, he has a high ceiling as a starter and a high floor as a shutdown reliever.

Yankees' Albert Abreu: Remains sidelined with shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu, who has been out since June 6, is dealing with a muscle issue in his right shoulder, Mark Sanchez of the New York Post reports.

It was unclear initially what forced the hard-throwing 21-year-old to the DL, and a shoulder ailment is not the most encouraging news. Abreu had a sparkling 1.84 ERA at Low-A this year before moving up to High-A, where he worked to a 5.09 ERA in six starts. He remains without a firm timetable for a return and will likely be treated with extreme caution.

Yankees' Albert Abreu: Out with undisclosed injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu was placed on the 7-day DL at High-A Tampa with an undisclosed injury.

He left his last start on June 6 after two perfect innings, so while an injury had not manifested itself in diminished results in the box score, he clearly suffered some sort of injury in that start. The big news with Abreu this season has been his added velocity, a fairly common occurrence for young pitchers who join the Yankees' organization. He has touched 100 mph with his fastball this season. Abreu posted a 3.82 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 41:12 K:BB in 37.2 innings across Low-A and High-A prior to suffering the injury, but he had been much more successful at Low-A than with Tampa.

Yankees' Albert Abreu: Touches 100 mph while fanning 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu struck out a career-high 11 batters over 5.2 innings Wednesday for Low-A Charleston, and occasionally touched triple digits on the radar gun,'s Alex Kraft reports. He gave up two hits while issuing zero walks against Low-A Augusta.

This was the 21-year-old's best start as a pro, as the zero walks were just as impressive as his 11 strikeouts, considering the control issues he has had in the past. Abreu now has a 17:1 K:BB in 9.2 innings in the Sally League, and will likely be seeing a promotion to High-A in the coming weeks, as he is simply not being challenged by hitters right now. The Yankees may have once again worked their velocity-adding magic, as Abreu had been a guy who could touch 98 before getting traded to New York, and now it seems he can pump 100 mph gas when he needs to.

Yankees' Albert Abreu: Dealt to Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu was traded to the Yankees on Thursday.

The 21-year-old was included in a package with fellow right-hander Jorge Guzman that sent Brian McCann and cash to Houston. Abreu is one of the better pitching prospects in the Astros system, and he proved that by posting a 3.50 ERA and 10.4 K/9 in 14 starts and seven relief appearances with Low-A Quad Cities. That being said, he still has a lot of control issues and needs to prove he can maintain his stuff over the course of a full season, but his ceiling still sits very high.

Astros' Albert Abreu: Strikeouts in abundance at Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abreu, 20, has a 3.70 ERA and 38:12 K:BB through 24.1 innings for Low-A Quad Cities.

Abreu has massive strikeout potential but also control issues, leaving questions as to whether he can stick in the rotation. Opposing batters are hitting just .172 against him, though, and he does keep the ball down in the zone.
