Yes another ex-Yankee on the list. Brian Cashman wants to add someone on the cheap, he should look no further than the guy who just opted out of his LA Dodger minor-league pact.
Aardsma was pitching quite well as the closer for the Dodgers AAA club in Oklahoma City.
He was 4-0 with a 1.29 ERA and 11 saves in 33 games. In 35 innings, he struck out 36. He gave up 20 hits and walked 17 and had a WHIP of 1.05.
Aardsma hasn’t appeared in a major league game since 2013 with the Mets where he didn’t put up the greatest numbers.
Aardsma will probably cost something close to the minimum and considering the Yankees are going to want someone on the cheap, this could be a guy who is right up their alley.
