The Yankees signed Chris Leroux to a Major League contract and added the right-hander to their 25-man roster, the club announced over the weekend. Leroux joined the Yankees on a minor league deal signed in January.

Leroux, who just turned 30 earlier this month, has a 5.56 ERA, 1.91 K/BB rate and 8.1 K/9 over 69 2/3 career Major League innings. He appeared in 63 games out of the bullpen for the Marlins and Pirates between 2009-13 and he’ll take on a similar relief role with New York.

The righty also spent time in Japan last season pitching for the Yakult Swallows.
