The Yankees have reached an agreement with Freddy Garcia, who will come to camp on a minor league deal to compete for a spot in the rotation.
According to Jerry Crasnick, Garcia will make $1.5 million if he makes the team, and he could make an additional $3.6 million based on number of starts.
By the way, if you’re ever desperate for the Yankees to make a move, tell me to step away from a computer for two hours. It never, ever fails.
UPDATE, 11:22 p.m.: A source just confirmed that the Garcia situation is exactly like Bartolo Colon’s. Garcia is being looked at strictly as a starter, and if he doesn’t make the Major League team, he will be released or traded.
