Pestano was released from his contract with the Yankees on Tuesday, LoHud.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pestano hadn't pitched since April after landing on the minor league disabled list, but he's now healthy and free to sign with a new team. In eight appearances this season, the 31-year-old worked to a 3.38 ERA with an impressive 16:1 K:BB over 10.2 innings with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Pestano was reassigned to minor league camp Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

He struggled in 19 appearances with the Angels last year and did nothing to help himself this spring, allowing five runs in four Grapefruit League innings. With the additions the Yankees made to the bullpen this offseason, it's hard to imagine Pestano taking on much of a role at any point in 2016.

Pestano received an invitation to spring training Friday, Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pestano split time between Triple-A and the majors in the Angels' organization last season, but saw much more success in the minors. There's a good chance that he could head back to the minors if he can't garner a low-leverage bullpen role in spring training.

Pestano signed a minor league contract with the Yankees on Wednesday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pestano enjoyed success early in his career with the Indians, but has struggled to find his form lately. He spent the majority of last season in the minors and figures to serve as organizational depth in the bullpen.

Pestano was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

Pestano has struggled throughout the season and has been used to record more than one out just once in his last six appearances. He figures to make it back to the major league club before too long, but the right-hander will likely continue to pitch in low-leverage situations.

Pestano tossed a scoreless seventh inning in Tuesday's win over Oakland.

He's struck out four and issued two unintentional walks over 5.2 innings this season. Pestano appears to be a few chairs away from the ninth-inning role should an injury befall Huston Street at any point this season.

Pestano agreed to a one-year contract with the Angels on Monday.

Pestano will avoid arbitration after signing with the contract. The 29-year-old split time between two teams and two levels last season ultimately ending the season with the Angels as a September call-up. He finished his major league season with a respectable 2.89 ERA and 1.23 WHIP over 18.2 innings, also striking out 26 over that period. He could be a candidate to make the team's bullpen with a strong spring training.

Pestano was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports.

In six appearances after joining Salt Lake earlier this month, Pestano gave up two earned runs and fanned 12 over eight innings. He posted a 1.78 ERA and 11.0 K/9 in 32 appearances with the Indians' Triple-A Columbus affiliate before being traded, but the right-hander is no real threat to Joe Smith and Huston Street at the back end of the bullpen.

Pestano was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday.

Pestano was traded to the Angels on Thursday, and it didn't take long for the team to add him to the bullpen. He struggled at the major league level with the Indians earlier this season, allowing five earned runs over nine innings. The 29-year-old reliever was impressive at the Triple-A level, however, posting a 1.78 ERA and 1.16 WHIP with Columbus.
