Yankees Acquire Middle Reliever Shawn Kelley

The New York Yankees have acquired middle reliever Shawn Kelley from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for outfielder Abraham Almonte. The Yankees have added Alex Rodriguez to the 60 day DL to make room for Kelley on the 40 man roster which is currently at full capacity. Kelley will be entering his age 28 season after posting a 2-4 record with a  3.25 ERA in 44.1 IP while striking out 45 batters in 47 appearances last year for the Mariners. Kelley also made 14 appearances for Seattle's AAA team last year going 2-0 with six saves and and 0.90 ERA in 20 IP with 25 strike outs. I am not sure we need another reliever to be honest but with a blog named The Greedy Pinstripes how can I complain, right?
