The Yankees have solid 26-year old righty starter/reliever Romulo Sanchez to a Japanese team. Sanchez was out of options, so the Yankees didn’t want to put him through waivers and see him on another team in 2011. Sanchez pitched in 2 games (0 starts) for the Yankees last year and he was 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP. He also pitched in 31 games (14 starts) in AAA-ball last year and he was 10-8 with a 3.97 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. The Yankees would have kept Sanchez if he had any options left.
