Yankees Sign Clay Rapada

The Yankees announced that they have re-signed Clay Rapada to a minor league deal.  The Bombers were forced to designate Rapada for assignment on March 31st in order to make room for Lyle Overbay on the roster.

Rapada, 32, posted a 2.82 ERA, 8.9 K/9, and 4.0 BB/9 in 70 games (38 1/3 innings) out of the bullpen for the Yankees in 2012.  However, Rapada was suffering from shoulder bursitis over the spring and will still need to time to get back on track.
