Yanks sign Aardsma

Thu., Feb. 23, 2012

Injured pitcher David Aardsma, who pitched for the Seattle Mariners in 2009 and 2010, agreed to a $500,000, one-year contract with the New York Yankees. The 30-year-old missed all of 2011. He started the season on the disabled list following surgery on the labrum of his left hip on Jan. 3 last year, felt arm soreness during a rehabilitation assignment at Triple-A Tacoma from April 19-29, then had elbow-ligament replacement surgery in July. “He’s someone with a lot of ability that we feel will be a benefit for us in the long run,” New York general manager Brian Cashman said. Selected by Colorado with the 22nd pick of the 2003 amateur draft, Aardsma is 13-15 with a 4.20 ERA in 254 relief appearances over six seasons. – Associated Press
