Yankees watching Ian Snell; another Pirate

According to Jenifer Langosch at MLB.com, the Yankees had scouts in attendance of Ian Snell’s start for the Pirates’ Triple-A affiliate.

Snell’s line: 5 IP, 9 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K. That’s actually Snell’s worst start by a long-shot since being demoted to correct some flaws. His ERA dropped to 0.96 over six starts and 37-1/3 IP.

The Yankees and Pirates have made a lot of moves together in recent years. Snell could be snagged at a pretty low price I’m guessing, considering he has been awful this year with the Pirates.

I happen to like Snell. He’s a strikeout pitcher, averaging 7.5 K/9 in his career. I think the Yankees should give this guy a shot. If he doesn’t pan out, then send him down. He shouldn’t cost them too much.
