Yankees, LHP Gio Gonzalez agree to minor league deal

Yankees put a short-term patch on their rotation depth with Gio Gonzalez

Gonzalez also could choose to become a free agent again if he isn't added to the Yankees' big-league squad by April 20, multiple media outlets reported.

The Yankees have added a starter.

Cashman also said veteran CC Sabathia is not expected to return to the rotation until mid-to-late April, as he finishes his rehab from offseason knee surgery and an unexpected heart procedure. Because they have the deepest bullpen in baseball - even with Tuesday's news that setup man Dellin Betances will open the season on the injured list with a shoulder injury - the Yankees would appear to be one of the best suited teams to utilize the opener strategy.

Gonzalez is a durable pitcher, though his effectiveness is in decline.

A 2017 study also found that people who consume at least one diet soda every day have almost three times the risk for dementia . Each additional serving per day of SSBs was linked with a 10 percent increased higher risk of CVD-related death.

"It's him compared to anybody else we now have at Triple-A through April 20, and the guy he has always been is lot better than those guys", Cashman said. The 33-year-old left-hander has made at least 27 starts in nine consecutive seasons.

"The movement of the off-speed pitches was good", Tanaka said through a translator. "But we'll see how far along he is and if we're at a point where he's in play actually for the next couple, few weeks".

At some time in the next two days, Boone expects to get a crash course on Gonzalez. Aaron Boone plans to have dinner with his dad when the Yankees travel across Florida to the east coast later this week. He ended up moving to the Brewers, making five starts for them and posting a 2.00 ERA and 0.95 WHIP (note the small sample size). His numbers tailed off a bit in 2018, but his 4.21 ERA in 171 innings from last season is still playable at the back of the Yankees rotation.
