Today, the New York Yankees signed Lehigh Valley pitcher Brian Gordon.
The 32-year-old Gordon is 5-0 with an International League-leading 1.14 ERA. He has given up seven earned runs in 55.1 innings for Lehigh Valley.
The veteran minor leaguer could opt out of his minor-league contract by Wednesday on the condition he is added to a major league roster by another team.
Gordon, who converted from the outfield after the 2006 season, has registered 56 strikeouts this season compared to just seven walks.
Let’s hope he was injected with Bartolo Colon’s stem cells before he was signed.
