A former member of the New York Yankees has officially found a new home. Former Yankees pitcher Brooks Kriske officially signed a minor league contract with the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday after spending part of the 2023 season with the Kansas City Royals, according to the club. “The Reds today signed (right-handed pitcher) Brooks Kriske to a minor league contract with an invitation to major league camp.

Kriske was selected in the sixth round of the 2016 Major League Baseball June Amateur Draft and rose through the ranks of the Yankees farm system. He finally made his big league debut with the Yankees in 2020, playing in four games and allowing six earned runs in 3 2/3 innings. The right fielder appeared in 12 games for the Yankees in 2021, but was designated for assignment and ultimately landed with the Baltimore Orioles. Kriske was eventually released and landed with the Yokohama DeNA Baystars of Nippon Professional Baseball in 2022. He signed with the Royals before the 2023 season and played in four games before joining the Saitama Seibu Lions of the NPB. Kriske will now try to return to the big leagues with the Reds. He has some assets and is 29 years old. In two seasons in the NPB, Kriske posted a 2.31 ERA in 32 appearances. If he can play at that level in the Reds’ farm system, it wouldn’t be too surprising to see him get another chance in the big leagues in 2024.
