Aardsma signs Minor League deal

MIAMI — As an organization, the Marlins have added another veteran right-handed reliever.

David Aardsma, released by the Yankees on April 4, has signed a Minor League deal with Miami. The 31-year-old himself broke the news on Saturday via his Twitter account.

Aardsma, who had Tommy John surgery in 2011, will join Triple-A New Orleans.

With Seattle, he combined for 69 saves in 2009-10.

A first-round pick of the Giants in 2003, the right-hander made his MLB debut in 2004. He has spent parts of seven seasons in the big leagues, where he has logged 266 2/3 career innings.

In 2012, he made one appearance with the Yankees. In Spring Training with New York, Aardsma threw in eight Grapefruilt League games, posting a 3.52 ERA in 7 2/3 innings.
