Yankees sign Ponson

The Yankees signed ex-Yankee Sir Sidney Ponson, according to Peter Abraham.

Ponson was with the Yankees in 2006, going 0-1 with a 10.47 ERA in five appearances (three starts).

He was recently designated for assignment by the Texas Rangers and ultimately released due to behavioral issues. He was 4-1 with a 3.88 ERA in nine starts for Texas. His last start was on June 4.

Ponson will be assigned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and will presumably be added to the list of in-house replacements for Chien-Ming Wang.

And, for the record, I was joking when I said this.
