Yankees sign Manny Delcarmen

The Yankees have signed former Red Sox reliever Manny Delcarmen to a minor league contract and will invite him to spring training, according to Joel Sherman of the NY Post.

Delcarmen, who will be 30 in two weeks, has a career 3.97 ERA, a 7.7 K/9, and a 4.2 BB/9 in six seasons and 292.2 innings pitched.┬áHe spent last season in Triple-A with the Mariners and Rangers system’s where he put up a 5.59 ERA, a 7.7 K/9 and 3.5 BB/9 in 38.2 innings.

The Yankees bullpen is currently very crowded so it is doubtful that Delcarmen would be able to make the team out of spring training without a number of injuries. But, as it goes with relievers, it is good to have a lot of them as you never know who is primed for a big year.
