The Yankees have added another pitcher with major league experience on a minor league deal.
After already reuniting with former Killer B Manny Bañuelos, New York has signed Ryan Weber, per Baseball America.
Weber pitched sparingly in 2021, appearing in a total of four games and 9.2 innings for the Red Sox, Brewers and Mariners. The right-hander surrendered 13 earned runs and five home runs over that brief stretch.
Weber did most of his work at the Triple-A level last year, pitching to a 4.18 ERA over 19 games and 103.1 innings while tallying 8.9 K/9.
Weber has 63 games and 167 innings of MLB experience. His best season came in 2020 when he pitched in 17 games for the Red Sox. The 31-year-old struggled mightily as a starter, but he pitched well in 12 relief appearances. Weber recorded a 2.25 ERA in 24 innings out of the bullpen, striking out 20 while walking just four.
Weber also had some success as a reliever in 2019, registering a 3.99 ERA in 29.1 innings. Weber pitched in a career-high 18 games overall that season.
Weber has also pitched for the Braves and Rays. He owns a 5.28 ERA for his career.
