Yankees sign Tim Hill as reinforcement for banged-up bullpen

The Yankees will add a veteran left-hander to their depleted bullpen.

The team signed relief pitcher Tim Hill to a major league contract on Thursday, putting him in time for the final game of the series against the Orioles.

Another left-handed pitcher, Anthony Misievich, was optioned Wednesday night for an available spot on the active roster.

Hill, 34, was designated for release by the White Sox last week and was released on Tuesday.

He had a 5.87 ERA with 13 strikeouts in 23 innings this season.

Hill spent seven seasons in the major leagues with the Royals and Padres, appearing in 347 games and posting a 4.30 ERA.

The Yankees needed fresh pitchers after their bullpen was forced to pitch six innings in a 10-inning, 7-6 loss to the Orioles on Wednesday.

Relief pitcher Ian Hamilton was also placed on the injured list on Tuesday after being ruled out for three to four weeks with a moderate latissimus dorsi strain, while fellow bullpen pitcher Nick Burdy has been on the disabled list since May 24 with right hip inflammation.
