Good job by our good friend Mark Feinsand who’s reporting that the Yankees have agreed to bring back Chad Gaudin to pitch out of the Yankees bullpen. Gaudin is reportedly already in Minneapolis to be activated before tonight’s game and a half.
Gaudin would give the team an additional long man, and could essentially take the place of Alfredo Aceves who suffered a setback on Tuesday when he once again felt pain in his lower back.
Of course, the Yankees had Gaudin this spring, but he became the odd man out when Sergio Mitre pitched extremely well. He signed with Oakland, was designated for assignment and now he appears to be coming back to where his season started. Last year he went 2-0 with a 3.43 ERA as a late-season addition in New York.
