Aaron Boone, manager of the Yankees, announced on the 27th (Korean time), “We have added shortstop Anthony Wolf to the roster for the opening game against the San Francisco Giants at Yankee Stadium in New York on the 31st.”

A New York native who grew up as a Yankees fan, Wolf was drafted by the Yankees in the first round of the 2019 Draft.

After playing in the minor leagues for the past two years and promoted from Single-A to Triple-A, Wolf played in 275 games with a batting average of .262, 50 home runs, 162 RBIs, and an on-base percentage + slugging percentage (OPS) of .881.

Wolf, who was invited to this spring camp, was 16 hits in 51 at-bats with a batting average of 0.314, 3 home runs, 5 RBIs, and 5 stolen bases with an OPS of 1.064.

Director Boone said, “Wolf kicked in the door himself,” and praised his performance in spring camp.

At 21 years and 336 days old on Opening Day, Wolf will become the youngest player on the Yankees’ Opening Day roster in 27 years since legendary shortstop Derek Jeter, who played in the 1996 Opening Day (at the time, 21 years, 281 days).
