The Yankees signed 28-year-old righty Dustin Moseley to a minor league deal in mid-February; he'd been non-tendered by the Angels earlier in the offseason after a lost '09 campaign. Moseley has made a dozen starts for the Yanks' Triple A club, and Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that his opt-out date comes up Thursday. If the Yankees don't promote Moseley, he can elect free agency.
Moseley sports a 4.21 ERA, 6.8 K/9, and 2.2 BB/9 in 72.6 Triple A innings, with only six home runs allowed. Tonight's start against Glen Perkins and the Rochester Red Wings is his last before the opt-out date. Rosenthal feels that Moseley would land toward the back end of the Yankees' bullpen, if he gets the call.
