Yanks Void Vizcaino's Contract

From Jim Street:
The latest in a string of injuries for right-handed reliever Luis Vizcaino apparently will cost him more than just another season on the sidelines.

The 36-year-old pitcher, who signed a Minor League contract with the Yankees in December, had the deal voided by the organization on Wednesday, according to the New York Post.

Vizcaino tore his Achilles tendon during the Winter League season and is not expected to pitch in 2011. He also missed all of the '10 season and almost all of the '09 campaign because of arm trouble.

The deal Vizcaino signed with the Yankees would have paid him $750,000 if he had made the big league roster this season.
Oh well, it wasn't like anyone was expect much (or anything) from Vizcaino anyway.
