Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that the Yankees have agreed to a minor league contract with right-hander Tim Redding.
Redding, 32, was released by the Rockies on Wednesday afternoon and fielded offers from the Dodgers and several Korean teams before finally agreeing to terms with the Yanks late Wednesday evening. He spent the first six weeks of the 2010 season with the Rockies’ Triple-A affiliate in Colorado Springs, posting a 4.32 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP in five starts (25 total innings).
It’s safe to say that Redding probably won’t have much of an impact on the Yankees this season, if any. He’s expected to report to the Yanks’ spring training complex in Tampa, Florida on Friday and will head to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre once the club gives him clearance to do so.
