Illness
October 4, 2019
Tarpley is not on the Yankees' ALDS squad.
ANALYSIS
Fellow lefty Tyler Lyons made the team ahead of Tarpley. Tarpley has been dealing with an illness, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports, but his 6.93 ERA in 24.2 innings this season means he wouldn't necessarily have made the team even if healthy.

Farm Futures: NL Central Top 10s
February 9, 2016
RotoWire's James Anderson dives into the best prospects in the NL Central, including the Brewers' Jorge Lopez, who has a chance to be a solid contributor in the majors this season.
2016 Fantasy Outlook
Tarpley came to the Pirates as part of the return for Travis Snider and the results have paid dividends. The left-hander went 11-4 with a 2.48 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 105:25 K:BB ratio for Low-A West Virginia. He limited left-handed hitters to a .203/.282/.263 slash line. Tarpley also did better on the road than at home. The 23-year-old went 8-0 with a 1.63 ERA and 1.01 WHIP away from home. Look for Tarpley to take the next step to High-A Bradenton in 2016.
