When you don’t have enough pitching, just sign Bartolo Colon. That’s been the case, it seems, for the past few years and, today, the Yankees took on that meme, signing Colon to a minor-league deal worth 900k. Colon, a former Cy Young winner in 2005, also has the right to be released if he doesn’t [...]
