Yankees claim left-hander

The Yankees just made this announcement.

Today the Yankees have acquired LHP Jose Ortegano off waivers from Atlanta and optioned him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He will report to Minor League camp.

In 2010 with Triple-A Gwinnett and Single-A Myrtle Beach, he combined to go 5-15 with a 5.98 ERA (131.0IP, 87ER).

Sorry, I initially wrote that he’s a left-handed reliever, but Ortegano was a starter last year. I just have to imagine he’ll work as a reliever in Scranton. That rotation is pretty full.
