NEW YORK (AP) - The Yankees signed Derek Lowe to a major league contract on Monday and said they planned to use the right-hander in the bullpen.
Lowe, a 39-year-old sinkerballer, has spent time as a reliever, but mostly has pitched in the rotation for various teams, most recently the Indians. Cleveland designated him for assignment on Aug. 2 and released him on Friday.
Lowe has a 4.01 ERA in 655 major league games with the Mariners, Red Sox, Dodgers, Braves and Indians.
