I guess this means that Sidney Ponson must really be retired. Via John Harper -
How desperate are the Yankees for starting pitching? They signed Bartolo Colon Wednesday to a minor-league contract and will take a look at him in spring training to see if he has anything left.
Colon, 37, couldn’t find a job in the majors last season. The righthander last pitched in the majors in 2009, when he went 3-6 with a 4.19 ERA for the White Sox.
Colon’s contract is non-guaranteed. If he earns a spot on the major league roster he’ll earn $900,000 plus incentives.
