Yankees Sign Ramon Benjamin To Minor League Deal

The New York Yankees have a ton of depth at starting pitcher in the minor leagues and have added another piece to the puzzle with the signing of Ramon Benjamin to a minor league deal. Benjamin, according to his MiLB.com page, has not pitched since the 2011 season either in the majors or the minor leagues.

Benjamin is 26 years old, will be 27 years old next month, and is listed at 6'1" and throws from the left side. No word on where his Yankees career will start but he will bring a career 3.76 ERA and 18-14 record to wherever he starts. Benjamin has never been above Double-A in the Miami Marlins organization but if I had to take a guess the Yankees will be stashing him in Tampa or Charleston.
