In Need Of Pitching, Yankees Sign Bartolo Colon

NEW YORK (AP) – Former Cy Young Award winner Bartolo Colon, out of the major leagues since 2009, has agreed to a minor league contract with the New York Yankees.

The 37-year-old right-hander was released by the Chicago White Sox in September 2009 after going 3-6 with a 4.19 ERA in 12 starts.

He went 21-8 for the Angels in 2005 and won the AL Cy Young, but is 14-21 since.
