Chan Ho Park low risk for Yankees

I guess Brian Cashman hasn't run out of money yet. News that he is about to sign Chan Ho Park is a welcome surprise. According to reports, it's a one-year, $1.2 million deal with another $300,000 in possible incentives. Despite his injury history, it's a good, low-risk baseball move for the New York Yankees.

The well-traveled Park will be a solid addition to a crowded bullpen headed by Mariano Rivera. Joe Girardi will have a nice problem on his hands, figuring out who makes the bullpen roster and in what capacity, with the biggest unknown being who will set up Mo. Park pitched well for the Philadelphia Phillies in the pen last year, posting a 2.52 ERA in the regular season and giving up no runs in the World Series against the Yankees.
Park reportedly chose the Yankees over the Chicago Cubs so it's a good move for him too. He pitched in his first World Series with the Phillies last year and has a great chance to make a consecutive appearance and get that elusive ring.
