The Yankees signed pitcher Chad Gaudin to a major league deal. He'll join the team tonight for a middle relief role, taking lefty Boone Logan's spot on the 25-man roster. To make room for Gaudin on the 40-man roster, the Yankees designated right-hander Shane Lindsay for assignment.
Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News first reported the agreement.
Gaudin, 27, was acquired by the Yankees from the Padres in August of last year. The arbitration-eligible righty agreed to a non-guaranteed contract after the season, and the Yanks cut him after a rough Spring Training. Gaudin then signed as a free agent with the Athletics, but was released a few days ago after turning down a minor league assignment.
