Brooks Joseph Kriske (born February 3, 1994) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball (MLB).


Kriske played all four years of varsity baseball at Palm Desert High School in Palm Desert, California. He helped his team to three consecutive California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) State Finals from 2010–2012, winning the CIF state championships in 2010 and 2012. Kriske pitched a complete game shutout in the final in 2012. He was a two-time All State selection.[citation needed]

Kriske played college baseball at the University of Southern California (USC). He was drafted by the New York Yankees in the sixth round of the 2016 MLB draft.[1] He underwent Tommy John Surgery in 2016 and missed the 2017 season.[2] He was an All-Star in the Florida State League pitching for the Tampa Tarpons before being promoted to Double A with the Trenton Thunder. The Yankees added him to their 40-man roster after the 2019 season, before being optioned to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders in March 2020.[citation needed]

Kriske was added to the Yankees' active roster on July 26, 2020.[3] He made his major league debut on July 29 against the Baltimore Orioles, striking out two batters and walking one in one inning of relief.[4]
