Dellin Betances Has One Additional Minor League Option

Dellin Betances has one additional minor league option for the 2014 season, something none of us in the blogosphere thought, and could go down to AAA to start the 2014 season. We all thought this would be the make or break season for Dealin' Dellin but Brian Cashman announced otherwise. The fourth option is due to a rare rule that allows a player that has five or fewer professional seasons that already used up their three options to get a fourth. Whatever works, right?

This gives Betances more time to work down in Scranton out of the bullpen out of Spring Training or a chance to head back down midseason for a month or two if he sticks with the team and then struggles. Either way this gives the Yankees a little more flexibility and the option to sign a veteran presence at the end of the pen. Either way this is great news for the Yankees, probably not for Betances though.
