Get ready for the re-experience. Or something.
Mitre registered a 5.03 ERA in 105 2/3 innings with the Yankees in 2009-2010, operating as both a long reliever and spot starter. He was traded to the Brewers before the start of the 2011 season for backup outfielder Chris Dickerson.
Mitre enjoyed a good amount of success this year in the National League, registering a quality 3.27 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 33 innings for Milwaukee, but the Brewers designated him for assignment earlier this week to clear a spot on their 40-man roster for the promotion of youngsters Mat Gamel and Zach Braddock.
Mitre is expected to pitch in long relief for the Yanks and will try to build on the momentum that he’s built for the past three months on the senior circuit. The Yankees DFA’d reliever Buddy Carlyle to make room.
