Via Ken Rosenthal, the Yankees have signed lefty reliever Randy Flores to a minor league contract. Joel Sherman says he has an opt-out clause that kicks in sometime before the All-Star break, which is to be expected. I wrote about him just yesterday, noting that he doesn’t have the greatest of numbers against left-handed batters in his career, but all he needs to do is be better than Andy Sisco. The conclusion: “If he does [sign with the Yankees], great, if not then no big deal. He probably won’t pitch all that well anyway.” Nothing wrong with Triple-A depth.
