HEAD EXPLODES: YANKEES SIGN SCOTT PROCTORBy
The Yankees have signed Scott Proctor to a minor league contract, so says Mark Feinsand. No, seriously. At least Joe Torre’s not around to run him into the ground again.
Proctor was released by the Braves earlier this week, mostly because he was terrible. His 6.04 FIP was so bad that he racked up 0.8 wins below replacement level in 29.1 IP with Atlanta. Check out these peripherals: 5.52 K/9, 5.83 BB/9, 1.53 HR/9, 28.4% ground balls. He hasn’t been effective since the Yankees traded him away in 2007, mostly due to Torre-induced injury. Anyway, Proctor is going to Triple-A and will report there sometime early next week.
