Nick Burdi

The New York Yankees have been enjoying a great start to the current ongoing season. They have been simply brilliant on the field, offensively as well as defensively. Moreover, the team environment is very positive because of the performances. After the first month of the 2024 regular season is over, the NY side seems to be in a great position. Currently, they are second in the American League East division. At the moment, they are 25-14. The team is looking good, and fans believe they will end the drought of the World Series this year.

 It is because the Yankees have been firing from all cylinders. Clearly, their offense with Juan Soto, Aaron Judge, and Giancarlo Stanton is one of the best in the league. Moreover, the Yankees bullpen is the best in the ongoing season. Clay Holmes has been performing brilliantly. And other pitchers are chipping well, too. Lately, there have been reports that the NY side is about to get a major boost to their bullpen. 


Nick Burdi Is Returning To The Club Soon

The Yankees bullpen has been the best in the season so far. But sure, there is room for improvement in the NY side’s bullpen. If there is one thing the Bronx Bombers would like to add to the performance of the bullpen is getting more strikeouts. Lately, there have been reports that reliever Tommy Kahnle has made a big step to his recovery process. And then there are more names coming from the Injured List, who are recovering really well, thanks to the brilliant Yankees rehab program. However, it seems the NY side just can’t get rid of these injury issues. Anyway, it seems the Pinstripes are gradually getting back their full strength in the bullpen. 

The RHP Nick Burdi has been missing from the throwing program since April 16, owing to a right hip inflammation. In the 2024 regular season, Burdi appeared in seven games before injuring his hip. So far, he had pitched 6 1/3 innings, striking out eight hitters, and didn’t allow a run. For sure, the Yankees missed him. Anyhow, lately, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reported that Burdi will return to the club on Friday. According to Kirschner, the Yankees will activate Nick Burdi on Friday. The right handed hurler has been great for the club this season so far. But what’s more impressive is his advanced metrics.

With Nick Burdi returning soon, it will be a great boost for the bullpen. Albeit he is not the biggest name in MLB, Burdi can help the Yankees fulfill their quest to win their 28th World Series title. Moreover, Burdi has impressive stats. His fastball velocity across the sport has been 96 percent. Moreover, other than Clay Holmes, Burdi can be another top option for the Yankees out of their bullpen.

He can come in real late in the game. In 2024, the Bronx Bombers have had their fair share of injuries. However, they are finally looking like a healthy roster. Nick Burdi will be an important reinforcement for them. Moreover, the NY side will have more key players coming back to the club out of injuries.
