The New York Yankees announced that they have signed RHP Lou Trivino to a one-year Major League contract for the 2024 season with a club option for the 2025 season, per the club.

The Yankees acquired Trivino, 32, in the same trade that sent Frankie Montas to the Bronx at the 2022 deadline. 

After that deal, he made 25 appearances and averaged a 1.66 ERA, showing off his superb play in the pinstripes. At that time, he had a slightly elevated walk rate of 10.8%, but he also had a respectable strikeout rate of 23.7% and a ground ball rate of 51.7%.

Trivino fits the Yankees bullpen system extremely well. Their bread and butter when it comes to ground ball rates. The Yankees 2023 season did not go as planned, but that was at no fault to their bullpen.

Trivino underwent Tommy John surgery last season and was non-tendered by the club. He will rejoin the same bullpen that finished first in the league in all of team bullpen ERA last season.
