Luis Vizcaino Returns to Yankees

According to this tweet from Greg Carig of's The Star-Ledger, the Yankees have signed Luis Vizcaino to a 1-year, minor league deal worth $750,000. he'll have to make the team out of Spring training.

Last time we fanatics saw Vizcaino in pinstripes was in 2007 when he went 8-2 with a 4.30 ERA. He had struggled in the beginning of the season that year, but settled down during the second half. However, he pitched horribly against the Cleveland Indians in the 2007 ALDS, posting a 13.50 ERA allowing 2 hits, 1 run and 2 walks in 2/3 of an inning. The Yankees are obviously continuing to stock up on relievers. This isn't a bad move by the Yankees, but it's also not a great move. Vizcaino would probably be used to pitch to one batter in an inning when necessary or to eat up some innings if a starter struggles.
