Yankees signed LHP Matt Thornton to a two-year, $7 million contract.
Thorton, 37, is coming off a 3.74 ERA and 30/15 K/BB ratio over 47 1/3 innings this past season between the White Sox and Red Sox. He's a cost-effective replacement for Boone Logan, who suckered the Rockies into paying him $16.5 million over three years. Thornton, at this point in his career, is a decent middle-inning relief option. Tue, Dec 17, 2013 12:37:00 PM
