It makes you wonder whether the Yankees will try to bring him back. They seemed to like him in the role of long-man/emergency starter. They never actually released him either, he was traded for outfielder Chris Dickerson. Maybe they will view him at least as a better option than Brian Gordon and give him a shot.
Hopefully they don’t mess around with Mitre though. The Yankees should have given Hector Noesi a shot in the rotation and still should if they want to replace Gordon. If they really don’t want to use Noesi there maybe they can at least call up Adam Warren and give him a shot.
Mitre wasn’t terrible for the Brewers this year. In 22 games he had a 3.27 ERA. His K/9 was a very low 3.8, but his BB/9 of 2.7 wasn’t terrible.
