No guarantees for long relief candidates

Sergio Mitre is not the only fifth starter/long relief candidate with a non-guaranteed contract. Brian Cashman confirmed this afternoon that Chad Gaudin’s deal is also non-guaranteed.

That means the Yankees have alternatives for each of their multi-inning pitchers who could be affected by the Chan Ho Park signing.

Joba Chamberlain, Phil Hughes and Alfredo Aceves have options remaining, so they can be sent to Triple-A. Mitre and Gaudin could be released in spring training without the Yankees being responsible for their contracts.
