Roe, who has spent the season with the Marlins' Triple-A club, is likely to join the Yankees' major league club once rosters expand tomorrow. He has posted a 3-3 record and 3.66 ERA in 64 relief innings with Triple-A New Orleans, with his 10.1 K/9 and 3.43 SO/BB ratios likely making him attractive to the Yankees.
The addition of Roe seems to be the right-handed version of the Yankees' acquisition of lefty Josh Outman, who was acquired from the Indians late last week after spending a few months with Triple-A Columbus.
Roe made his major league debut with the Diamondbacks last season, posting a 4.03 ERA in 22.1 relief innings. The 27-year old was a first round pick in the 2005 draft and has spent time in the Rockies, Mariners, Diamondbacks, Rangers and Marlins' organizations.
