KYLE FARNSWORTH, Yankees pitcher
Signed a three-year, $17.5 million contract before the 2006 season
The Yankees were looking for a reliable reliever to get the ball to Mariano Rivera. Farnsworth was not that guy. In two-plus seasons with the Yankees, Farnsworth was 6-9 with a 4.33 ERA and seven saves in 181 games. He was traded to Detroit for Ivan Rodriguez on July 30, 2008.(Credit: Newsday/Paul J. Bereswill)
