Anthony Swarzak inks minors deal with Yankees


Some long relief depth here for New York.

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Yankees have agreed to terms on a minor league contract with right-hander Anthony Swarzak. The deal will pay Swarzak a $750,000 salary if he makes the major league roster, though it’s almost certain he will open the 2016 season at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Swarzak spent the majority of the 2015 season with the Doosan Bears of the Korea Baseball Organization and struggled in that hitter-friendly league.

He owns a 4.45 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and 280/131 K/BB ratio in 453 career MLB frames.
