In a deal similar to the one that the Yankees made with Colon the Yankees have signed Freddie Garcia to a minor league contract.  If Garcia makes the team he will make 1.5 million and another 3.6 million based on the number of starts he makes. If he does not make the team like Colon he will be released or traded. I like Garcia he has good stuff and I think he will be a favorite to make the team. I personally would like to see him and Colon both make the team and Pettitte make his comeback at the all-star break. I personally would be satisfied starting the season with a rotation of : 1, Sabathia  2. Hughes 3. Burnett 4. Garcia 5. Colon/Nova.  I think that balance has been restored and the Yankees are again a legitimate contender in the East.
