I’m already a huge fan of Jordan Yamamoto… I’m not even exactly sure on why, but I feel like there’s something there. At only 24, the Mets were able to acquire the right-hander via trade with the Miami Marlins for minor leaguer Federico Polanco.
After Sunday’s team workout, Yamamoto spoke to the New York media. Here’s a clip via SNY…
It’s interesting to hear Yamamoto talk about getting batters out without relying on “++” fastball. He also compares aspects of his game to Marcus Stroman in pertains to his athleticism as well as his attitude and personality.
Yamamoto has made it clear that he’s here and that he’s “ready to rumble”!
