Yankees re-sign LHP Chaz Hebert to a minor-league deal
Hebert, 25, was originally the Yankees' 27th-round pick in 2011, and he has posted a 3.28 ERA in 83 games (49 starts) over seven seasons in the organization. He missed all of 2016 after undergoing Tommy John surgery, and returned this past season to go 3-1 with a 4.53 ERA in 14 games (seven starts) for four squads across three levels, including both Rookie-level Gulf Coast League Yankees affiliates, Advanced Rookie-level Pulaski, and Class-A Advanced Tampa.
Prior to his Tommy John surgery, Hebert's 2015 season saw him tie for second in wins (10) and finish fifth in ERA (2.55) among qualified Yankees minor-leaguers, and he also made seven appearances in the Arizona Fall League that autumn.
To date, Hebert has three Triple-A appearances under his belt (all in 2015), but outside of those, the lefty's other 80 career outings have all come at the Class-A Advanced level or below.
