Former Yankee Andy Phillips signed a one-year deal worth $400k to play for the Hiroshima Carp, according to an AP report on ESPN.com. We heard rumblings about the move earlier in the week, but it's now official.
Phillips, 32, played four seasons with the Yankees before splitting time with the Reds and Mets last year. He played in Triple A for the White Sox and Pirates to start this season.
