From Yankees.com -
The New York Yankees announced today that they have signed free agent right-handed pitcher Scott Erickson to a one-year Minor-League contract with an invitation to spring training.
Erickson, 38, went 1-4 with a 6.02 ERA in 19 games (eight starts) with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2005 after earning a spot in the rotation during spring training.
I’m guessing that Wade Taylor, Chuck Cary and Jeff Johnson were not available.
This is a joke – and a very bad one at that.
The last time that Erickson had any value as a pitcher was 1999.
For those needing an assist, that was seven years ago. This is embarrassing.
