Yankees Sign Heath Bell To Minor League Contract

No, this is not a joke. Yes, we are desperate. The New York Yankees have signed relief pitcher Heath Bell to a minor league deal today after opting out of his contract with the Baltimore Orioles. Mark Montgomery was sent down to Double-A with the Trenton Thunder from Triple-A Scranton to make room for Bell on the RaiRiders roster. This is disappointing as Montgomery was once the next big thing in the Yankee bullpen but 18 walks in 29 innings can derail that pretty quick.

Bell had a 7.27 ERA with the Tampa Bay Rays before being designated for assignment and latching on with the Baltimore Orioles. Bell opted out of his contract and will not try and latch on to the revolving door in the Yankees bullpen.

This should be fun, said no one ever.
