According to Peter Abraham, the Yankees have signed 33 year-old righty Victor Zambrano to a minor league deal. Zambrano posted a 9.45 ERA in 40 Triple A innings this year.
Abraham indicates he will stay in Tampa and work out and is coming off surgery. Not sure what surgery that refers to, but Zambrano did spent time on the DL with an elbow strain last year. He also had Tommy John surgery in May of ’06 as well as a procedure to repair a flexor muscle tear. At the time, it was thought to be possibly career-ending.
