Leiter Wants Season #20
Friday, January 06, 2006
"You know he is not afraid. He is a veteran guy, a stand-up guy, a quality guy. He likes to compete." - - Cashman

No one would call Al Leiter’s return to the Yankees in 2005 particularly stellar, but he’s not ready to throw in the towel just yet. Despite his poor numbers as a starter– he went 4-5 with a 5.49 ERA – he did well out of the bullpen and Cashman and Torre believe he’s still got something to offer to the Yanks. According to the New York Post, the Yankees are expected to sign Leiter to a minor league deal that would allow him to come to spring training and battle for a spot on the Yankees roster.

“He'd be an insurance policy," Cashman explained. "He would come in to compete for the bullpen to get lefties out like he was doing in the playoffs. That is what we are talking to him about."

After last season Leiter had discussed retirement, which is still an option if he doesn’t do well in spring training. Leiter has a great reputation as a broadcaster and could join the YES crew in the booth if things don’t work out on the field.
