Yankees sign David Aardsma
The Yankees have signed reliever David Aardsma to a Major League contract.
Aardsma is coming back from Tommy John surgery performed last July 22. Aardsma is making approximately $500,000 this year with a club option for 2013.
“The move could help us in 2012, but it has a lot more eyes toward 2013,” Yankees GM Brian Cashman said.
Cashman said that Aardsma is believed to be about a month behind Joba Chamberlain. The Yankees have been talking to Aardsma all winter, Cashman added.
Pedro Feliciano will be transferred to the 60-day disabled list in a corresponding move.
