Free agent Wade LeBlanc has agreed to a minor league deal with the #yankees. It includes an invite to big league camp and an out clause at the end of spring training. He’ll earn $1M if he makes the big club.
The 33-year-old spent last season the the Pirates, going 5-2 with a 4.50 ERA in 50 relief appearance. This will be his second go around with the Yankees. He made a one inning appearance for the Bombers back in 2014, allowing two runs.
LeBlanc will most likely be competing for a spot in the bullpen.
