As if you had any reason to doubt it, I just confirmed Jack Curry’s report: The Yankees have in fact signed lefty Matt Thornton to a two-year deal worth $7 million.

Thornton had some extremely good years with the White Sox, but as he’s aged he’s become more of a typical lefty and not so much of a late-inning setup man and occasionally closer. He’s the Yankees first significant bullpen signing of the winter, and he should essentially replace Boone Logan, who just landed with the Rockies for three years, $16.5 million.
