Blue Jays signed LHP Mike Zagurski to a minor league contract.

Indians released LHP Mike Zagurski.

The 31-year-old southpaw owns a 7.05 ERA in 89 career appearances at the major league level, but he was pitching well this season at Triple-A Columbus and should be able to line up a new deal quickly. Zagurski inked a minor league contract with the Indians in late November.

Indians signed LHP Mike Zagurski to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Zagurski appeared in one game with the Yankees this past season, but spent the majority of the year at the Triple-A level, where he had a 3.04 ERA and 83/24 K/BB ratio over 53 1/3 innings. He'll attempt to win a job as a left-handed specialist.

Mike Zagurski has elected free agency.

The 30-year-old left-hander appeared in just one game with the Bronx Bombers this season, allowing a pair of runs in 1/3 of an inning. In 53 1/3 innings split between three organizations at Triple-A, he registered a 3.04 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 83/24 K/BB ratio. He'll likely have to settle for a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training as he attempts to latch on elsewhere and compete for a bullpen role.

The Yankees will sign Mike Zagurski on Tuesday, according to Andy McCullough of The Star-Ledger.

New York wanted "lefty insurance," according to McCullough, and their search ended with Zagurski. The southpaw opted out of his contract with the A's earlier this month because Oakland didn't include him amongst its September call-ups. Zagurski owns a brutal 6.84 ERA over 88 career appearances. It's unclear at the moment if the Yankees will hand Zagurski a major league contract and immediately add him to the active roster.
