New York Yankees Sign Zach McAllister

The New York Yankees have made a depth move, signing Zach McAllister to a minor league contract. 
McAllister opted out of a minor league deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks last week, and it did not take much time at all to find his new home. The 35-year-old has appeared in 38 Triple-A games this season, where he sports a 1-2 record to go along with a 4.81 ERA. 

McAllister also has a connection with the Yankees, as they selected him in the third round of the 2006 draft. He ended up being moved to the Cleveland Guardians in 2010, however and never made an appearance as a member of the Yankees.

McAllister has 280 games of MLB experience on his resume, where he has a 29-35 record to go along with a 4.09 ERA. He has not appeared in the majors since the 2018 season, but he will be hoping to change that. First, he will need to impress the Yankees in the Triple-A and get his contract selected because of it.
