NEW YORK (WFAN) - The New York Yankees have signed former Seattle Mariners right-handed reliever David Aardsma.

Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports that it’s a major-league deal worth $500,000. Aardsma is currently working his way back from Tommy John surgery last July and likely won’t be ready to contribute until mid-season. The 30-year-old posted a 2.90 ERA and saved 69 games for the Mariners from 2009-10, so he could be a savvy addition.

Feinsand reports that Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said the Aardsma move has more to do with 2013 as the Yankees hold a club option on the reliever.
