Yankees agree to Incentive Laden Minor League Deal with Andrew Bailey

On Saturday evening the Yankees agreed to a minor league deal with 28 year old reliever Andrew Bailey. The deal, first reported by Buster Olney on twitter says it is worth $2.5 million and has a 2015 option+buyout. Bailey who is sometimes vulnerable to the injury bug wont be ready till mid-season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum in mid-July.

The deal posses an enormous upside for the Yankees and the reliever has proven himself in the past. In 2009 Bailey won the AL ROY with the Athletics saving 26 games and having a 1.84 ERA. In 2009 Bailey also had a .217 BABIP, regardless of the production Bailey is a nice addition and could prove to be valuable in the second half of the season for the Yankees.
