New York Yankees Sign Manny Delcarmen

The New York Yankees are just about done making major moves it seems, after locking up CC Sabathia long-term, signing Hiroki Kuroda and trading for Michael PIneda. Now it seems the Yankees brass is working on rounding out their roster and finding low-risk signings, and according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Yankees did that by taking a flier on reliever Manny Delcarmen.

The 29-year-old reliever is on a minor league deal that includes an invite to camp. It's probably unlikely he'd make the team at this point, but you never know if an injury could open up a spot in the bullpen. Delcarmen, who spent time with the Rockies and Red Sox last season, posted a 4.99 ERA across 52 1/3 innings of work with a poor 1.19 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
