The Yankees have re-acquired Sergio Mitre. He was dealt from the Brewers to the Yankees for cash considerations.

To make room for Mitre, the Yankees have designated Buddy Carlyle for assignment.

During spring training, Mitre was Joe Girardi's final cut on his 12-man pitching staff.

Girardi said that Mitre will likely be the team's long man. He could be with the club as soon as Thursday afternoon's game against Mitre's former team, the Brewers. With the Brewers, Mitre's numbers were fine as he had a 0-1 record with a 3.27 ERA.

In the previous two years, Mitre was 3-6 with a 5.03 ERA.

After the Brewers let Mitre go, A.J. Burnett and CC Sabathia talked and wondered if maybe the Yankees would re-acquire him. The two talked about it in the bullpen on Tuesday.
