It looks like Jason Bulger may get to pitch against the Gwinnett Braves this season after all.
The New York Yankees signed the Brookwood grad to a free agent contract on Saturday, just a few days after he was released by the Minnesota Twins. Bulger will report to the Yankees' team in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, which plays in the International League with the G-Braves. New York's Class AAA makes a visit to Coolray Field in July.
Bulger, 33, had a rough start to his spring with the Twins, who signed the right-hander to a free agent contract in the offseason. He has pitched most of his career with the Angels, including a 2009 season that saw him go 6-1 with a 3.56 ERA and pitch in the playoffs.
The Valdosta State grad and 2001 first-round pick pitched in 125 major-league games from 2005-2011. He has pitched a total of 286 minor league games.
