Yankees sign Jared Burton to Minor League Deal

The Yankees agree to terms with RHP Jared Burton on a minor league deal, with an invitation to spring training.  Burton, 33, has pitched in 8 season in the big leagues.  He spent the last 3 years in relief with the Twins, and his stats have regressed each year.  That is probably why he found himself without a job just days before pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training.  Jared Burton has a 18-19 career record with a 3.44 ERA.  His best season was in 2012, but he has been unable to replicate that success since.  The Yankees have been stockpiling on relievers throughout the winter, and appear to be adding as much depth as possible.
