A few mid-day notes

Just a few relatively minor things to put on your radar, if they aren’t there already.

• Joel Sherman reported last night that the Yankees have signed former Red Sox reliever Manny Delcarmen to a minor league deal. It’s little more than a depth move right now, but Delcarmen is just now reaching 30 years old, and he put together a couple of pretty good seasons out of the Boston bullpen. There’s no risk here, just a mildly familiar name invited to big league camp.

• Word out of Chicago is that the Yankees have hired former Cubs GM Jim Hendry to serve as a special assistant. Bruce Levine says it’s a multi-year deal. Obviously the move brings back memories of Kevin Towers serving a similar assistant role two years ago. Maybe Hendry will also stick around for a year and then take a middle-of-the-pack NL West team to the playoffs.

• In the middle of this story out of Toronto is what seems to be an educated guess that the Blue Jays were talking about a trade for Michael Pineda before the Yankees acquired the young right-hander. Apparently the Mariners wanted Brett Lawrie.
