Yankees sign David Aardsma

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Feb 22, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The Yankees have signed reliever David Aardsma to a Major League deal worth $500,000 plus incentives. There is an option for 2013.

Aardsma had Tommy John surgery in July, and Brian Cashman said he’s looking at this primarily as a move for next season. There’s a good chance, though, that Aardsma could pitch in this year’s second half. He’s about a month behind Joba Chamberlain, but the Yankees don’t have a great feel
for how far he’s come in his rehab. The value of next year’s contract depends on this year’s production.

Aardsma will be added to the 40-man roster with Pedro Feliciano going to the 60-day. It’s all but certain that Aardsma will shift to the 60-day when the Eric Chavez deal is official.

Cashman was careful to point out that he’s been talking to Aardsma all winter and said this move is in no way connected Mariano Rivera hinting at retirement.

    i like that cash is thinking beyond this year…..
    2013: AArdsma, Joba (should be a starter but whatever), Robertson, Soriano.
    Cash is making sure the pen is never something he needs to worry about.

  2. RadioKev February 22nd, 2012 at 12:31 pm

    Not a bad little move.

  3. ac1 February 22nd, 2012 at 12:33 pm

    For 500K? Definitely not a bad move.

    “Cashman was careful to point out that he’s been talking to Aardsma all winter and said this move is in no way connected Mariano Rivera hinting at retirement.”

    Who would possibly think that and why? They are already stacked in the pen.

    Cashman has a growing affinity for these low risk flyers…..sometimes they work out.

    ID, I think that the article cautions people who do yoga to be aware that it may not be as benign as you think; that’s a good thing. So, I would just say awareness is your friend. Obviously someone with unstretched muscles who tries to push it can hurt him/herself. Also, some yoga’s are gentler than others. A person who isn’t in optimum shape shouldn’t be trying kundalini yoga or holding poses for very long. But playing sports and other forms of activity, for instance even cycling have their red flags as well, especially if you keep playing/riding etc w/an “asymmetrical” body; however, we all have our little physical quirks/imperfections, so… being alive is a risk.

    yankeefeminista February 22nd, 2012 at 12:36 pm
    Jeter would be a good yogi. He has that crazy flexibility. And Mo has the perfect disposition for yoga, but because he has it so deeply within him, he doesn’t even need to do yoga.

    IN THE HOLE: At noon, I will have a blog go up in which Manny Banuelos talks about what he has to improve.

    SCHEDULED STARTER: Also on tap is a podcast with Phil Hughes. Should be up in the late afternoon.

    Chad, how does Hughes’ throwing look? Anyone?

    Manny Banuelos knows why he didn’t shoot through the Yankees system and end up in the Bronx last season. His fastball location wasn’t good enough.

    “That’s what hurt me last year,” Banuelos said. “That is what I’m going to try and improve this year.”

    Banuelos walked 71 batters in 129 2/3 innings. He will begin the year at Triple-A and, if I had to predict, I doubt you will see much, if any of him, in the Bronx. Next year, he could enter spring training fighting for the No. 5 spot in the rotation.

    This offseason, Banuelos didn’t play Winter Ball.

    “They didn’t let me,” Banuelos said.

    Did he care?

    “Not really,” Banuelos said.”

    For more on Banuelos and Dellin Bettances read my 25Q/25D on them.
    *****
    6 weeks until ManBan and Co go back at it. And can the beat writers please spell Betances’s name right. Sheesh!

    nice move

  13. MaineYankee February 22nd, 2012 at 12:54 pm

    If Aardsma can return to what he was with Seattle it will be a good signing.

    It won’t affect the budget because that amount can come from petty cash. :D:

  15. Chip February 22nd, 2012 at 12:58 pm

    Nice move – if he can be healthy for 2013 (assuming the retirement of Rivera) you have four solid options to compete for the closer’s role with Joba, Robertson, Aardsma and Soriano.

    This one strikes me as a Jon Leiber/Octavio Dotel move. I like it though. Aardsma is still young and should recover nicely.

  17. Rich in NJ February 22nd, 2012 at 1:00 pm

    “Interesting story on Joba”

    I’m not sure any Yankee is more likable than Joba, at least to me. I hope he can re-establish an important role on this team for many years to come.

    Chad says it depends on how productive he is this season. I assume if he doesn’t pitch at all it’s probably for the ML minimum.

    By the way – the Yankees also signed Burt Reynolds.

  21. GreenBeret7 February 22nd, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    JackCurryYES Jack Curry
    Mariano Rivera is throwing bp 2 his son. I’m not sure he’s ever done that in Tampa. Another signal that this could be his last year?

    Yanks also said that Aardsma was more for 2012 than this year…like the Lieber deal in ’03.

    Yanks also signed Burt Reynolds to a minor league deal to play the outfield. No word if Jerry Reed and Sally Fields will roll up in a ’69 Trans Am Firebird to save the day.

    Nah – if Rivera retires now you can have a competition between Joba, Robertson, Soriano and Aardsma for the closer’s job in 2013.

    Besides, with CC, Pineda, Hughes, Nova, Banuelos, maybe Betances, Warren and Phelps you are going to have enough options at starter for 2013

    “A person who isn’t in optimum shape shouldn’t be trying kundalini yoga or holding poses for very long.”

    of course no one will believe me , but yogi bhajan who brought kundalini yoga to north america tried to get me to join his ashram in toronto in 1971.

    he was a very intense guy. he looked right through you. kind of reminded me of frank robinson. same kind of presence.

  32. Chip February 22nd, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    Plus the Aardsma thing (if he is available this year) gives them a nice addition at the trade deadline.

  33. ac1 February 22nd, 2012 at 1:25 pm

    Someone here said that the Yankees have to overpay to get players, but they are building parts of their team on the cheap and seeing it makes me confident Cash will find the right balance between the out of control contracts and the one Cano will get in FA, and the ‘players on the cheap’.

  34. Ys Guy February 22nd, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    iirc, the a’s waited from ST till july hoping aardsma would heal and avoid surgery. it didn’t work. he was on my fbb dl for 3 months before they announced his season was over.

  35. pat February 22nd, 2012 at 1:32 pm

    Burt Reynolds is Robbie’s cousin.

    Isn’t that what the competition is for?

    As for too many relief options, I guess, but again, I think a bona fide competition should settle roster construction, at least imo.

    Speaking of surgery, yoga has also been used in lieu of scoliosis surgery for example, so that’s another possible benefit…

    We also have some big bullpen power arms on the horizon. So, I am not at all worried about our BP.

    though i have to dodge the phone nazi.

    yes that video is good and shows what he does.

    the problem is that he goes much further in his spinning when he throws hard. he’s within two feet of the rubber often.

    i don’t see how all these different landing spots will help create deception with a change up that is supposed to look just like a fastball.

    “Randy, interesting…!”

    yankee feminista-

    yes, i was visiting an ashram down the street from his. there was a big group wedding between the two ashrams.

    i was doing yoga at 4:30 in the am everyday. i was not happy.
    but i still do the breath of fire thing i learned there .

    the really interesting thing was that there was a secret martial arts side to their ashram. i knew about it from being there and doing some of the yoga with them. it was very athletic. probably one of the hardest things i’ve ever done.

    “As long as the arm speed and slot is the same I don’t think that matters as much…..hitters aren’t looking at his leg..”

    blake-

    it’s like in the golf swing.

    you can tell a lot of what a guy is doing at impact by where the follow through goes to.

    pineda is clearly rotating more than anyone i’ve seen. he does almost a 360 sometimes with his foot within two feet of the rubber. he’s moving toward right field . that can’t be good.

    something is happening that is making a pretty conventional planting of the left foot make him do an almost 360 degrees spin afterward.

    i will be very surprised if yankee coaches don’t try to clean it up.

  51. J. Alfred Prufrock February 22nd, 2012 at 2:02 pm

    Kundalini can be very hard on the body. I studied it about 11 years ago in New York in a School of Bhajan disciples called Universal Force Yoga. They even served his Yogi tea. I had to leave them because they were a nightmare to deal with, even when you had joined. Always pushing you to sign up for more classes, always wearing their “enlightenment” on their sleeve. The only guy I liked was the one who led it, Gurunam (or Michael Levy), a Trinidadian who studied under Bhajan and was the real thing, not a wannabe like his employees were. They also pushed an elderly woman too far on the “frog” exercise, which is supposed to eradicate and pre-empt breast cancer (I have no doubt that these things work, btw; I was in the best shape of my life during this time). She really was not up to all the up-and-down repetitions, and injured herself. What bothered me is they refused to take any responsibility for her demise; so much for spiritualism.

    Anyway, I should add that I had done Hatha and Iyengar before I even thought about tackling Kundalini. Not for beginners.

  52. Chip February 22nd, 2012 at 2:04 pm

    Also, competition in spring training is a myth.

    If Brandon Laird, for example, puts together an outstanding spring – say .400 BA, 7HR, just looking great – that still doesn’t mean he is a better bench option than Eric Chavez. Why? Because playing regularly against other minor leaguers or veterans more concerned with getting in shape than their results does not tell you if he’s capable of sitting for a week and then coming off the bench and giving you a productive at bat.

    I’ve always been in favor of taking a guy like Laird, at the minor league level, and putting him on the bench for a couple of months so that you can see how he handles the role he will likely be filling at the major league level.

    “Is it better to have Austin Jackson who might some day be as good as Curtis Granderson or having the actual Curtis Granderson?”

    That wasn’t the type of competition that I’m talking about, Chip. This thread is about
    Aardsma, who signed a mL contract. So at this point he is a marginal candidate for a roster spot. That is the area where I want ML ready prospects to be availed a fair competition.

  56. GreenBeret7 February 22nd, 2012 at 2:13 pm

    I don’t care one way or the other whether Lin crashes and burns or gets elected to the HOF. You didn’t have a clue to who he even was a month ago. Now, he’s Earl Monroe and Pete maravich combined.

  57. Rich in NJ February 22nd, 2012 at 2:14 pm

    LGY (I know you know this)

    What we are hearing repeatedly from pro personnel guys that scouted Lin in college is that he is a different player than he was at Harvard. He has completely transformed his body, he has improved his outside shot, he is better at going to his left, and people underestimated his superb court vision. He’s a player. Whether he is more than an average starting PG remains to be seen, but there is now a real chance that his potential ceiling is considerably higher.

  58. blake February 22nd, 2012 at 2:15 pm

    Randy,

    I haven’t seen him throw a ton….just a few clips but it looks to me like he’s in a pretty good position when he releases the ball…..he stays closed well with his shoulder and most of that is after release……so just as with a baseball or golf swing…..position at impact is what’s most important ……maybe they will try to clean it up…..but I don’t see it as a huge issue right now especially if he continues to throw strikes.

    “Now, we had a pretty good idea that Nova’s new-and-improved slider was nasty, but I don’t think anyone realized it was 43.1% Whiff-per-Swings-Taken nasty! As a frame of reference, CC Sabathia, who boasts one of the top sliders in the game, recorded a Whiff/Swing of 40.9% last season (though in fairness, he also threw it 27% of the time).”

    Pretty cool post on the new pitchFx data…..suggests how Nova improved in the second half last year.

    Nah, this great low-risk, high-reward move for a guy who saved 69 games 2009-10 has no connection to Rivera’s possible retirement. C’mon Cash! LOL!

    ‘Key is what is the 2013 option? $1M? More? Way more? I’m guessing it’s no more than $2.5M or 5X Aardsma’s 2012 salary. Even if it was as much as $5M / 10X his 2012 salary, that’s still low-risk high-reward considering 2012 Mo will cost $15M / 3X that and Mo would cost that for 2013 if he decided to sign on for one final season.

    This deal reads like an audition for Aardsma where they get a look at him this season and give him the ball at least part of the time if not all next to see if he could be the closer or dual-closer.

    I bet Cashman is envisioning Aardsma as one of these things fom ideal to least ideal:

    1. The closer for 2013 and beyond.

    2. A 31-year old one-year stopgap closer (he turns 31 on 12/27) with the potential to be the closer beyond 2013.

    3. A dual closer with Robertson, Chamberlain, or Soriano, or a candidate to be one.

    I firmly believe Cashman will go in-house with the 2013 closer if Rivera retires and it will be a dual-closer made up of any two from Aardsma, Robertson, Chamberlain, and Soriano so one guy doesn’t feel all the pressure is on him moreover the pressure to be as good as or better than Mo. I predict all four will save a game for the 2013 Yanks.

    “Why would you say something like that? I, for one, believe every single word you utter….”

    Been some interesting discussion today

    yeah, the multiple discussions are enjoyable. I’ll have to get caught up tonight.

    One guy that did yoga was Melancon, but I don’t think it was kundalini. On alternate nostril breathing: they tell you if you’re feeling sick or coming down with something, see what nostril is dominant at the moment and switch. You know, it works.

    Maybe MP’s delivery and landing is already kundalini fueled ;D.

    Chad: Looking for feedback on my tall, power right-hander with the ace arsenal when I get back tonight (DB, not MP :D). Manuelito and DJ sinkerball man too, please.

    Ryan Braun should be stripped of the 2012 NL MVP award, period, end of story, case closed. He cheated and if he isn’t stripped of the award, MLB is a joke. Whoever the NL MVP award runnerup is should be the MVP and is the real MVP.
