Gaudin rejoins Yankees

MINNEAPOLIS -- Chad Gaudin, who was released by the Yankees after falling short in his bid to earn a rotation spot in Spring Training, signed with New York on Wednesday.

To make room for Gaudin on the 40-man roster, the Yankees designated right-hander Shane Lindsay for assignment. Lefty Boone Logan was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to make room on the 25-man roster.

Acquired by the Yankees from the Padres in August as depth for the playoff push, Gaudin was 2-0 with a 3.43 ERA in 11 games for New York, including six starts.

Coming into camp this year as a contender for the fifth starter's job -- along with Joba Chamberlain, Phil Hughes, Alfredo Aceves and Sergio Mitre -- Gaudin was the odd man out and was released by the Yankees on March 25 after he posted a 8.68 ERA in four Spring Training appearances.

He went 0-2 with an 8.83 ERA in 12 appearances with the Athletics before being released last week, but did receive his World Series ring from the Yankees before a April 20 game at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

"First-class, and I didn't expect anything different," Gaudin said then. "It was great to have everyone there and make it feel like home again. I was a little nervous, a little chillish, but it was a very special moment. I'm going to cherish it forever."
