Brett Tomko and the Yankees reached an agreement on a minor league contract today. He was also given an invitation to Spring Training. I don't know what to think of this, because Tomko isn't very good. He really hasn't put up very impressive numbers in his career. Last year he made 10 starts and he went 70IP  (W-L) 2-7  6.30ERA  49K 1.44WHIP. I'm not crazy about  him, but I guess he is just supposed to provide more depth. He will wear #53, which was worn by former Yankee, Bobby Abreu.

Girardi talks about Tomko...

Brett is a guy that can do a lot of different things," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "He can start, he can relieve, he can long relieve or [be a short guy]. He's a guy with a good arm and we just felt we wanted him for depth. One thing that you want to have on this club is a long reliever or spot starter.
