The trainers in Tampa must be paid by the patient. The Yankees have signed right-handed pitched Sergio Mitre, who had Tommy John surgery in June. He was given a split contract.
Mitre, who pitched for Joe Girardi in Florida, won’t be ready until the middle of next season, if then. He is 10-23, 5.36 in 78 career games, 52 of them starts. He blew out his elbow in spring training and did not pitch in 2008.
