In early February, the Yankees signed right-hander Ian Hamilton to a minor league deal. Since the start of 2020, Hamilton has been on the run with stints in Chicago (AL), Minnesota, and now New York (AL).
Many did not expect Hamilton to make too big of an impact, let alone make the major league roster. Six weeks into the season, he has turned into a go to bullpen piece for Aaron Boone.
In his 19.0 innings this season, Hamilton has pitched to an impressive 1.42 ERA, collected his first career save, and has accumulated 23 SO. With the Yankees recent revolving door for who will close out games, Hamilton could be a viable option for Boone.
For the Yankees, they need as many positives as they can get right now, and Ian Hamilton has been one of the best. Hamilton seemed to have fly under the radar, if he keeps this pace up, Ian Hamilton will be a highly talked about topic.
