After seeing a handful of appearances out of the Yankees bullpen in 2015, Cotham was included in the deal that sent Aroldis Chapman to New York. While his stuff has played quite hitable in his early big league career, he has seen strong strikeout numbers at times in the minor leagues. The former 2009 fifth round pick out of Vanderbilt has taken some time to get to the big leagues, all spend with the Yankees system prior to the trade. Cotham jumped as high at Triple-A in 2013, but posted over five ERAs the following two seasons in the upper levels and got stagnant with the success. Cotham has both started in relieved in his minor league career. He throws a fastball in the low 90s and a slider in the high 80s. Occasionally, he works in a curve and a change as well.
