SAD NEWS: Just In New York Yankees Head Coach Just Announced Top Sensational Star Player Will Leave Due To……..

TORONTO: After selecting Josh Breaux in the second round of the 2018 MLB Draft, the Yankees had high expectations for the catching prospect.

Breaux, a backstop with raw power and a strong arm behind the dish, was ranked as the Yankees’ No. 15 prospect by MLB Pipeline in 2019.

However, the Yankees gave up on Breaux after watching him steadily drop down the organization’s catcher depth chart for years.

The Yankees released Breaux on Saturday.

Breaux’s performance and injuries had been problematic for him over the previous few years, but this season was especially difficult.

Breaux played for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in just 11 games, going 5-for-35 with a.143 batting average. He spent a significant amount of the spring season as a non-roster invitee with the major league team. In April, he reported to the RailRiders, and in May, he was added to the Yankees Development List.

With players like Austin Wells, Ben Rice, Agustin Ramirez, and others, catchers have become such a strength for the Yankees in the upper echelons of their farm system in recent years that Breaux’s loss isn’t too great.
