Nelson Figueroa Signs Minor League Contract With New York Yankees

The New York Yankees have signed Nelson Figueroa to a minor league contract, the pitcher revealed on Thursday when he posted a picture of his new contract on Facebook.

Figueroa, 37, appeared in eight games last season with the Houston Astros, including five starts, and racked up an 0-3 record with an 8.69 ERA. The journeyman has pitched for six teams in his nine-year career, accumulating a career 20-35 record to go along with a 4.55 ERA. One of his biggest assets has always been versatility, as he can start or come out of the bullpen equally well.

The problem is that it's unclear whether he has any life left in his right arm. He began the season in the Toronto Blue Jays system but has yet to appear in a game this season.
