Yankees Will Not Sign Hideki Okajima 5

hideki-okajimaWhen the Red Sox designated their lefty reliever Hideki Okajima for assignment last week I wondered if the Yankees would take a chance on signing him as they have had a lack of quality left handed pitching this season, but that will not be the case.

According to Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe, Okajima has cleared waivers and been assigned to the minor leagues.

The Yankees must either like their own internal options in Randy Flores and Andy Sisco or they have something else in mind. One thing is certain, Boone Logan is not getting the job done. Lefties are hitting .323 off him this year.

    They should have at least tried to. Anybody is an upgrade over Boone Logan!! I don't know how Girardi could justify taking Burnett out and putting him and Ayala in.. They threw up the white flag with those two relievers last night..
