Yankees sign Trevor Rosenthal to minor-league deal, reports say

Surely Trevor Rosenthal is hoping his third team this season will be his last for a while.

The Yankees have signed the free-agent reliever to a minor-league contract, Andersen Pickard first reported and MLB Network’s Jon Heyman and other outlets subsequently confirmed Tuesday.

Rosenthal was released by the Nationals in June and quickly signed a minor-league deal with the Tigers, though he elected free agency earlier this month after being designated for assignment by Detroit.

He has struggled on the mound this season, posting a horrendous 22.74 ERA in 12 appearances with the Nats and a 7.00 ERA in 10 games for the Tigers. Over those 15 1/3 innings, Rosenthal walked 26 of 85 batters faced and threw nine wild pitches.

Still, the Yankees seem comfortable taking a risk on the former All-Star closer, whose fastball continues to average 98 miles an hour despite undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2017.
