While not the biggest signing the Yankees could do, they have given lefty Hideki Okajima a chance to come out of their bullpen as they sign him to a minor league deal. Brian Cashman informed ESPN earlier this week that the Yankees have in fact signed former Red Sox pitcher Hideki Okajima to a minor league deal.  He is expected to compete with Cesar Cabral for the second spot out of the Yankee bullpen.

Okajima was on the 2007 Red Sox team that won the World Series, but spent most of the 2011 season in Triple A.  In his 5 active season with the Sox he was 17-8 with a 3.11 ERA.  Okajima is 36 years old while his competition, Cabrel, is 23 and Yankees GM Brian Cashman says that he is “kicking butt” in winter ball.
