Phillies signed RHP Andrew Bailey to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Bailey allowed eight runs -- five earned -- in 8 2/3 innings this past season with the Yankees, but he posted promising numbers in the minors and should have good odds at landing a spot in the Philly bullpen. The 31-year-old right-hander was among the most dominant relievers in baseball back in 2009-2010 with the A's. Thu, Dec 17, 2015 11:51:00 AM

Andrew Bailey has elected to become a free agent.

Bailey refused an outright assignment to the minors after the Yankees declined his option for 2016 on Tuesday. The 31-year-old pitched well in the minors this season while rehabbing from shoulder surgery, but he had an 8.31 ERA over 10 appearances in his return to the majors. He'll likely have to settle for a spring training invite somewhere.

Yankees declined RHP Andrew Bailey's club option for 2016.

While the Yankees declined the option, Bailey remains under team control for 2016. The 31-year-old pitched well in the minors this season while rehabbing from shoulder surgery, but he had an 8.31 ERA over 10 appearances in his return to the majors.

Yankees purchased the contract of RHP Andrew Bailey from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

It's been a long road back for Bailey, who hasn't appeared in the majors since July 12, 2013 due to shoulder issues. Now 31 years old, the former All-Star and AL Rookie of the Year posted a 1.35 ERA and 30/9 K/BB ratio in 26 2/3 innings between Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season. It was enough to earn his way back to the big leagues.

Andrew Bailey has been shut down at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre due to a shoulder strain.

Yet another arm injury for the 30-year-old right-hander. Bailey hasn't appeared in a major league game since July 12, 2013 and this new shoulder issue will obviously make his climb to New York much tougher. No word yet on how long he's expected to be sidelined.

Andrew Bailey, who missed all of last season following labrum surgery, pitched a scoreless inning in his fourth appearance of the spring Saturday against the Orioles.

Bailey allowed an unearned run his first time out, but he's gotten through the other outings clean, and with the way he's throwing, there'd seem to be a shot of him helping the Yankees later this year. He is going to open the season in the minors.

Andrew Bailey (shoulder) has been throwing at the Yankees' spring training complex for almost a month and is scheduled to face hitters soon.

Bailey missed all of last season while recovering from shoulder surgery, but he insists he's healthy now and hopes to crack the Opening Day bullpen. "Everything feels great," Bailey said. "I'm with the team and doing everything as I would normally and if I need a little extra work here or there, that's fine, too. I'm here to compete and earn a spot." It's not terribly likely that the two-time All-Star regains all his stuff, but if he's even close he could be a nice piece in the New York 'pen.

Yankees declined a 2015 club option on RHP Andrew Bailey; re-signed him to a minor league contract.

Bailey didn't pitch at all this season while rehabbing from surgery last July to repair a torn labrum and shoulder capsule. The hope is that he'll be ready to contribute in 2015.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi indicated Friday that Andrew Bailey (shoulder) is not expected to return during the 2014 season.

Bailey continues to rehab from his surgery last July to repair a torn labrum and shoulder capsule. The hope is that he will be fully healthy and ready to go for the start of spring training in 2015.
Sat, Aug 16, 2014 02:30:00 PM

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Monday that Andrew Bailey (shoulder) could return in September.

Bailey is still rehabbing at the team's spring training complex following surgery last July to repair his labrum and shoulder capsule. Obviously, it's always a rough timetable when anyone is coming back from a major shoulder operation. The Yankees certainly aren't counting on anything from the former closer.

Andrew Bailey (shoulder) has progressed to throwing off flat ground.

Bailey, who signed a minor league deal with the Yankees in February, has reached 50 throws at a distance of 90 feet and expects to stretch out to 120 feet next week. Coming off major shoulder surgery, he's unlikely to contribute until late in the season.
Tue, Mar 18, 2014 11:41:00 AM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Sunday that Andrew Bailey (shoulder) isn't expected to be available until September.

The Yanks inked Bailey to a minor league deal Saturday, but it sounds like they're not expecting much of a contribution from him this season. The reliever underwent surgery in July to repair his labrum and shoulder capsule and has yet to do any throwing. Bailey posted a 3.77 ERA and 39/12 K/BB ratio over 28 2/3 innings last year for the Red Sox.

Yankees signed RHP Andrew Bailey to a minor league contract.

MLBTradeRumors.com's Tim Dierkes first reported the two sides were close. The deal is loaded with incentives that could bring the value to $2.5 million, ESPN's Buster Olney reports. Bailey's impact won't be immediately felt as he works his way back from labrum and shoulder capsule surgery, but he could be back and ready to make an impact by midseason. The 29-year-old has closing experience and could serve as insurance for David Robertson.

According to MLB Trade Rumors' Tim Dierkes, the Yankees and Andrew Bailey are close to a deal.

Dierkes didn't have specifics on the terms of the deal. Bailey posted a 3.77 ERA and 39/12 K/BB ratio over 28 2/3 innings last year before having surgery in July to repair his labrum and shoulder capsule. He won't be ready for the start of the regular season but should be back on the mound by mid-May.
Sat, Feb 22, 2014 09:50:00 PM

Tim Dierkes of MLBTradeRumors.com reports that "more than 15 teams have called to express interest" in Andrew Bailey.

Bailey was non-tendered by the Red Sox last week but apparently won't have any issues finding another job. The reliever is recovering from surgery to repair his labrum and shoulder capsule but, barring setbacks, is expected to be ready by mid-May. He'll likely get an incentive-laden, one-year deal.
