THE YANKEES SIGNED A LEFTY!
This isn't major, but it's important. I've always been a fan of the lefty.
The Yankees made a move and signed former Padres and Giants lefty Jose De Paula to a major league deal. According to Aaron Gleeman of Hardball Talk:
"... the 26-year-old career minor leaguer he gets a big-league deal with a spot on the 40-man roster.
De Paula spent this season pitching for the Giants at Triple-A, where he had a 4.21 ERA and 41/16 K/BB ratio in 51 innings. He had a similarly unimpressive 3.86 ERA and 57/11 K/BB ratio in 75 innings at Double-A for the Padres in 2013."
Lightening in a bottle? Maybe. I mean the dude is young and the Yankees see potential I guess... and so, they're going for it.
