From Erik Boland of New York’s Newsday comes word that the Yankees have agreed to terms on a minor league contract with reliever Jason Bulger.
Bulger was released from Twins camp early last week after allowing eight hits, five walks and 10 earned runs in four Grapefruit League innings. The 33-year-old right-hander has run out of time to be considered for an Opening Day roster spot with the Yankees, but he could get a shot in the Bronx later this summer if he gets off to a steady start at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Bulger has posted an underwhelming 4.33 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 138/75 K/BB ratio in 133 career innings.
