Yankees offseason news and notes: 11/25/11

On Thursday the New York Yankees announced on their official site that they raced an agreement to a one-year contract with veteran starter Freddy Garcia, according to a report on ESPNNewYork.com. The Bombers have not announced the signing, which is said to be worth 4-5 million dollars.

Garcia proved to be a valuable asset to the Yankees in 2011, going 12-8 with a 3.62 ERA in 26 games (25 starts) in his first season wearing the Pinstripes.

Members of the Yankees organization also volunteered their time for a Thanksgiving feast on Wednesday, dishing out food to the needy members of their community in the South Bronx. Teaming up with Legends Hospitality and the Supportive Children’s Advocacy Network (SCAN) to provide 200 residents a Thanksgiving meal they will never forget.
