Yankees signed LHP Gio Gonzalez to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

He'll earn $3 million on the deal with the Yankees if he makes it to the big leagues. The veteran southpaw is taking a massive pay cut after earning $12 million per season in each of the last three years with the Nationals. Since he already lives and trains in Florida, the plan is for him to join the Yankees this week, though he obviously won't be ready for the start of the regular season. The deal includes an opt-out for April 20 if he isn't on the big league roster by then. For a team that needed additional rotation depth due to injuries, Gonzalez makes for a very intriguing low-cost addition.
