Rasner signs one-year deal with Yankees

Appeal Staff Report

While Darrell Rasner has already been in spring training trying to earn a spot on the New York Yankees opening day roster, the team made his presence official on Tuesday when it signed him to a one-year contract.

Rasner, a 1999 Carson High graduate, is trying to earn a spot on the Yankees pitching staff, most likely as a reliever. The Yankees will carry 12 pitchers to begin the season.

The right-handed pitcher is scheduled to make his spring training debut on Friday when the Yankees play the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Rasner is expected to pitch in relief of Andy Pettitte. Last year with the Yankees, Rasner went 3-1 with a 4.43 earned run average.
