AP Source: Luis Vizcaino agrees with Yankees

RONALD BLUM,AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — A person familiar with the deal says reliever Luis Vizcaino has agreed to a minor league contract with the New York Yankees.

Vizcaino would get a $750,000, one-year contract if added to the 40-man roster and the chance to earn an additional $850,000 in performance bonuses, the person told The Associated Press on Monday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement had not been announced.


The 36-year-old right-hander was 8-2 with a 4.30 ERA for the Yankees in 2007, when he made a career-high 77 appearances.

He was 1-3 with a 5.40 ERA last season for the Cleveland Indians, who cut him on June 23.
