Yankees sign Derek Lowe

It looks like the Yankees will go with David Phelps on Monday in CC Sabathia‘s spot and will go with Derek Lowe as their new long-man in the ‘pen.

Have to say, it’s a bit surprising they would go with Lowe over some of the pitchers they have in Triple-A, Adam Warren especially. Brian Cashman likes having lots of options though. Lowe had a 5.52 ERA, a 3.1 K/9 and a 3.4 BB/9 in 119 innings with the Indians this year.
