I really wanted Scott Sauerbeck. Instead, he went back to the Indians. But, it's good to know that the Yankees called.

"My options were: I could sign a two-year deal with the Yankees and be a left-handed specialist for two years; or have a chance to set up and earn my way back," said Sauerbeck, who turns 34 on Wednesday. "I was like, 'I don't want to lose again, but I don't want to get locked up in being a specialist.'
