Blue Jays signed RHP Buddy Carlyle to a minor league contract.

Braves signed RHP Buddy Carlyle to a minor league contract.

The deal does not come with an invitation to spring training, meaning Carlyle will be in minor league camp one month from now. He posted a 4.70 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in eight relief appearances last year with the Yankees before being released in August. The Braves probably aren't expecting much from him.

Yankees released RHP Buddy Carlyle.

Carlyle was ineffective for the Yankees earlier this season, posting a 4.70 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in eight games. He was solid in 27 games for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, holding a 3.98 ERA and 1.19 WHIP, but evidently the Yanks decided they just didn't have room for him anymore. With the minor league season ending soon, the 33-year-old will probably just take the rest of the year off.

Yankees optioned RHP Buddy Carlyle to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Carlyle has pitched well in mop-up duty for the Yankees, posting a 2.70 ERA in seven games over the last three weeks. He had pitched the last two nights, though, and the Yanks were in need of some new blood.

Buddy Carlyle began a rehab assignment Monday night with Triple-A Gwinnett.

Carlyle tossed a perfect inning, striking out two. "Everything felt good," he said. "I think it will continue to come back once I get my arm stretched out a little bit more. As soon as I do that, I think I'll be able to throw with a little more power." A late July return is within reach.

After going on the disabled list with an upper back strain May 26, Buddy Carlyle has been diagnosed with Type-1 diabetes.

Carlyle lost 20 pounds over the last few weeks, causing him to see a doctor. Type-1 diabetes is serious, but can be managed with injections five times a day. He figures to take a while to regain his strength and then head out on a rehab assignment. It could be to August before he returns to action.
