Jacob Lindgren Called Up To The Yankees

Jacob Lindgren has had an amazing season in AAA with Scranton Wilkes-Barre, and just a few days ago, he was called up to the Yankees. The Yankees team is filled with a bunch of old age players, that can't do much, such as Carlos Beltran. With Slade Heathcott making his debut a few days ago, and him hitting his first major league home run today, the Yankees decided to bring 22 year old Jacob Lindgren up to the major leagues! He made his debut today, pitching 2 innings of relief with a couple  of strikeouts. Lindgren was drafted to be a left handed reliever, not a starter, so he should be able to help with the Yankees bullpen struggles (And I definitely do not mean Miller and Betances, I'm talking about Carpenter and Wilson). 

Prior to todays game, the Yankees have lost 10 of their last 11 games, but with a 14-1 win today, they look to get back on track! 
Thank you for reading!
