Yankees Sign Tim Redding

Tim Redding officially signed a minor league deal with the Yankees, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post (via Twitter). The Dodgers and a Korean team also expressed interest in Redding, who was released by the Rockies this morning.

Redding, 32, had been pitching at Triple A in the Rockies organization. The righty had a 4.32 ERA with 7.6 K/9 and 1.8 BB/9 in 25 innings. He posted a 5.10 ERA in 120 innings for the Mets last year, with 5.7 K/9 and 3.8 BB/9.

Back in 2005, Redding started one game for the Yankees. It didn't go well for anyone but the Red Sox hitters Redding faced; he allowed four walks, four hits and six runs in his lone inning in Yankee pinstripes.

    Get some OF depth!

      With Vazquez pitching horribly and Pettitte coming off an elbow injury, they need pitching more.

        Vazquez didnt do bad today

        • BravesRed 5 years ago

          One half-decent start doesn’t mean anything.

          • Yankees10 5 years ago

            Half-decent? Look at the box score.

          • 7 IP/ 2 ER is a sub-3 ERA. It was a solid start.

          • BravesRed 5 years ago

            Just because he had one solid start doesn’t mean anything. If he starts having more games like this, then yes, I will say he is turning things around, until then, it will be just one solid start.

          • I never said he was turning things around. I was just saying that today he had a solid start.

            This is improvement, he’ll pick it up. Good things will come for Vasquez. This is a Braves Fan.

          • If by “good” you mean “league average,” then yes, I agree with you.

            The Yankees will never get more than league average from him, but that’s all they wanted him for. So I agree. This is a baseball fan.

          • bj82 5 years ago

            I don’t think the league average is pitching 7 inning 2ER against a offence like the Tigers have. I say he pitched really good.

          • Yankees420 5 years ago

            I believe he means league average going forward, and not to expect him to be a sub 3.50 ERA pitcher. Which is fine with me, if Javier pitches to a tune of 3.80 ERA ball and eats innings the rest of the season I’ll be happy with the trade.

        Im sure Nick Swisher can pitch better then Tim Redding the guy is awful. But seriously, they should start that Nova kid from the minors.

        • Yankees420 5 years ago

          I think Nova should stay down in AAA and maybe get a September call up, but I do think either him, McAllister or Joba will win the 5th spot in the rotation next season. (Provided the Yankees try to use Joba as starter again)

    (sigh) can never have enough mediocre pitching.

    On a nice little side note, 10 out of the 15 Yankees to play in the 2nd game today were all drafted or signed as amateurs by the Yankees farm system.

    Cano, Jeter, Cervelli, Pena, Russo, Gardner, Thames (originaly drafted by Yankees), Hughes, Chamberlain and Mo.

    What the hell for? I remember his one game with the Yankees a while back and then poof…never to be seen again.

    If you’re going to go with a player who might bomb, it might as well be Vasquez as he proved today, he MIGHT give you a good outing.

    I’d say the Yankees need better bench depth (especially now) and some bullpen help consider Robertson is indeed “Houdini” as the playoff Robertson has totally disappeared .

    How does this guy keep getting work?

    How is Santana doing these days? 14 earned runs the last two starts :)
