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.
