The Yankees were unable to obtain one Lee (Clifton Phifer). However, today, they signed the next best thing: J.C. Romero.

According to Buster Olney, Romero was released by the Nationals and signed with the Yankees. Romero was told he would be placed on the Nationals' Major League roster by July 15th. When it became apparent that would not happen, Romero reportedly requested his release.

He may pitch in AAA tonight for the Yankees in Scranton.

He really was never the same since the PEDs…
