Quick Hit: Reunion w/ Clay Rapada Make Sense?

The New York Yankees need a left handed LOOGY type pitcher after letting Matt Thornton go to the Washington Nationals for his contract. While the Yankees have stated they will look internally to fill the gap and are focusing on versatility and length an interesting option has presented itself none the less. Clay Rapada was released from his minor league deal with the Baltimore Orioles late last night. Could a reunion be in the works and would the reunion make sense for the Yankees?

Rapada has bounced around since having a successful 2012 season with the Yankees posting a 2.82 ERA and 8.9 K/9 in 38.1 innings. Rapada does have a 5.83 ERA in 38.1 innings this season in Triple-A but could he be any worse than Rich Hill? That I'm not entirely sure of... what say you?
