Andrew Bailey RP NYY 1 Month

Andrew Bailey (shoulder) has progressed to throwing off flat ground.

Bailey, who signed a minor league deal with the Yankees in February, has reached 50 throws at a distance of 90 feet and expects to stretch out to 120 feet next week. Coming off major shoulder surgery, he's unlikely to contribute until late in the season.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Sunday that Andrew Bailey (shoulder) isn't expected to be available until September.

The Yanks inked Bailey to a minor league deal Saturday, but it sounds like they're not expecting much of a contribution from him this season. The reliever underwent surgery in July to repair his labrum and shoulder capsule and has yet to do any throwing. Bailey posted a 3.77 ERA and 39/12 K/BB ratio over 28 2/3 innings last year for the Red Sox.

Yankees signed RHP Andrew Bailey to a minor league contract.

The deal is loaded with incentives, ESPN's Buster Olney reports. Bailey's impact won't be immediately felt as he works his way back from labrum and shoulder capsule surgery, but he could be back and ready to make an impact by midseason. The 29-year-old has closing experience and could serve as insurance for David Robertson.

Tim Dierkes of MLBTradeRumors.com reports that "more than 15 teams have called to express interest" in Andrew Bailey.

Bailey was non-tendered by the Red Sox last week but apparently won't have any issues finding another job. The reliever is recovering from surgery to repair his labrum and shoulder capsule but, barring setbacks, is expected to be ready by mid-May. He'll likely get an incentive-laden, one-year deal.

Red Sox non-tendered RHP Andrew Bailey.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reported Sunday that Bailey would receive a tender, but that turned out not to be the case. It's not a surprise that the Red Sox didn't feel he'd be worth it, as Bailey will make more than $4 million in arbitration and is expected to miss the first half of next season following labrum and shoulder capsule surgery.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post hears that the Red Sox will tender a contract to Andrew Bailey.

Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal previously reported that Bailey was a "strong candidate" to be non-tendered. The reliever will likely be out until midseason following labrum and shoulder capsule surgery and is expected to make more than $4 million in arbitration. Boston apparently feels his high upside is worth that kind of commitment.

Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal writes that Andrew Bailey is a "strong candidate" to be non-tendered.

Bailey would receive a salary north of $4 million in his final year of arbitration, and the Red Sox might not be willing to pay him that much since he's expected to miss half of 2014 while coming back from shoulder surgery. "Ben (Cherington) and I had a good conversation at the end of the year," Bailey said Saturday. "It's a business. We haven't had any contact yet." Bailey will begin a throwing program in January.
