Yankees Bring Back Three Minor Leaguers

The Yankees have brought back three of their minor league players from 2013 signing them to new minor league deals today. These deals are as follows:

David Herndon is a 28 year old right handed pitcher that was signed last year in the spring coming off of Tommy John Surgery in 2012. Herndon will get a second shot to prove he is healthy in pinstripes as he has re-upped for the 2014 season. Herndon pitched the second half of last season and will undoubtedly get a shot in spring training to win one of the last bullpen spots. Herndon is Rule 5 draft eligible and I do not see the Yankees protecting him so there is always that possibility but that is not a very likely scenario in my opinion.

The Yankees also signed a couple of organization utility players in Jose Pirela and Jose Toussen which are both infielders by trade. Jose Pirela will be 24 when the 2014 season starts and have more value then Toussen as he can play second base, third base, left field, and short stop while being a part of the AA Trenton Championship team.
