Yankees Sign Free Agent Reliever David Herndon, Immediately After Cutting Him

The Yankees cut David Herndon from their 40-man roster.  Then, the Yankees signed David Herndon.  Huh?  Okay, they had a good reason.  But, I think the Phillies would have taken this approach with Herndon and kept him in the organization for depth if they had the chance. This is how it worked.   The Yankees, like the Blue Jays and like the Phillies, did not feel that David...
