One of the misfit toys the Yankees used in the rotation last year — Sergio Mitre — was eligible for salary arbitration. He and the team have avoided that, as Jerry Crasnick reports that he and the Yankees have reached a deal for 2010 at $850,000.
Mitre had a $1.25 million club option that the Yankees declined. He was 3-3 with a 6.79 ERA in nine starts and three relief appearances in his
return from Tommy John surgery last season. He has a
career ERA of 5.56 in 61 starts and 29 relief appearance.
With the addition of Javier Vazquez and the commitment to Joba Chamberlain and/or Phil Hughes in the rotation, Mitre looks like he’ll be a mopup man at best.
