The Yankees were hoping Okajima could help take the load off left-hander Boone Logan. It’s back to the drawing board.
Some Yankees fans have expressed outrage, but Brian Cashman has kept the organization’s best interests at heart by waiting for the right deal.
The New York Yankees agreed to a minor-league deal Wednesday with former Red Sox lefty Hideki Okajima. The 36-year old will have an opportunity to compete for a spot on the Yankees’ 2012 Opening Day roster in spring training.
The Red Sox have added more depth to their much-improved bullpen, signing former Yankees right-hander Alfredo Aceves and lefty Dennys Reyes.
