Yankees Re-Sign Sergio Mitre

Because even the Yankees need mop-up men.

Via Jerry Crasnick of ESPN:

Pitcher Sergio Mitre agrees to $900,000 deal with Yankees. Could earn $200,000 more in incentives.

I’m not sure why the Yankees have kept him around with so much depth in the minor leagues right now, but as the old saying goes – you can never have enough pitching. And like I said, even the Yankees need mop-up men.

It should be noted that Mitre was originally drafted by and came up with the Cubs and pitching coach Larry Rothschild. So maybe that was at least part of the reason why they retained him.

Hopefully this means Dustin Moseley is done.

    I call him Meat=Tray because he throws meatballs. Here's hoping a youngster progresses quickly to take Mitre's spot.
