Yanks Ink Randy FloresPosted: May 17, 2011
Via Ken Rosenthal and RAB, the Yankees have signed lefty reliever Randy Flores to a minor league deal. Mike of RAB actually wrote a post about the possibility of New York signing him which is definitely something worth checking out. The opt-out clause he has will be for some time before the All-Star break.
Flores, 36, started this year with the Padres, but opted out of that contract and has now locked on as a possible LOOGY for the big league club. He doesn’t have great numbers against lefties, but he is just another option and adds more depth along with Andy Sisco. We’ll have to keep an eye out and see how he performs.
