Chad Jennings reports that the Yankees have signed Casey Fossum to a Minor League deal and he will start for the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees today

Jennings guesses that Fossum may have cleared waivers on Thursday, which would mean that the Yankees wouldn't have been required to place a claim on him and give him a 40 man roster spot.

Fossum, 31, has pitched in 237 Major League games, starting 120. He has a record of 40-53 with a 5.45 ERA and 2 saves. As a starter, he is 29-47 with a 5.65 ERA.
