Yankees sign Jason Bulger

The Yankees have signed right handed reliever Jason Bulger, who was just released by the Twins, to a minor league deal, according to Erik Boland of Newsday.

Bulger, 33, has pitched for most of his career with the Angels. In seven seasons he has a career 4.33 ERA, a 9.3 K/9, and a 5.1 BB/9. He throws mostly curveballs with a 91-93 mph fastball and an occasional changeup.

Bulger will start the season in Triple-A, but that won’t last long. Bulger will need to get some work in since he’s only pitched four innings this spring, but he’ll be one of the first people called up when the Yankees need help in the bullpen. Hopefully he can be this season’s Luis Ayala or Cory Wade.
