Yankees Bringing Back Milton

Former Yankee top prospect Eric Milton has resigned with the team on a minor league deal. As you know, Milton was sent to the Minnesota Twins, along with Christian Guzman for the namesake of this blog, THE Chuck Knoblauch. Milton is recovering from Tommy John surgery and is still six weeks from games, so apparently the Yankees are also making this move for next year. Milton hasn't thrown a full season since 2005 with the Reds, and has a career ERA+ of 93, but I guess its always good to have depth.
