2023 Player Outlook
2023 Recap: The Yanks used Kahnle in high leverage situations last season and he responded well. Hem pitched to a 2.66 ERA and despite his high 4.2 BB/9 rate his high K rate (10.62 K/9) left his inherited runners stranded at an above average 82.1 rate and that helped him record an impressive 1.107 WHIP.
2024 Outlook: The Yankees will likely use Kahnle as Holmes’ setup man and he should be able to back into occasional save situations. There is some concern as to whether Kahnle’s way above average strand rate could regress and cause those free passes he so generally gives out to come back to haunt him.
