The New York Yankees haven't yet given their fans the Christmas in January they were hoping for vis-a-vis Manny Machado or Bryce Harper, but that doesn't mean they aren't keeping busy.
A veteran right-hander well acquainted with the AL East, 28-year-old Drew Hutchison, is heading to the organization on a minor-league deal.
Hutchison made his MLB debut with the Blue Jays in 2012, but went down injured and had to undergo Tommy John Surgery just 11 starts into his career. He came back in 2014 and played two full seasons, but has bounced between brief big league stints, longer minor league spells and free agency over the last two years.
Now, he gets a chance to be a part of something special in the Bronx.
In 2018, Hutchison started with the Phillies and ended with the Rangers, logging exactly 21.1 innings for each team. He was 5-6 with a 6.42 ERA for the season.
We hear that Scranton and Wilkes-Barre are nice in the springtime.
