High Risk, High Reward
The newest name attached to the Yankees is that of Justin Duchscherer. In terms of high risk, high reward guys he is very appealing. He was mainly a releiver in his time with Oakland until 2008 when he was made a starter, and really performed. He posted 2.54 that year in 22 starts, and aced the Yankees in a couple starts, but since then he's dealt with depression and injury issues that have kept him out of the game. Last year he made 5 starts with a 2.89 ERA before injuries knocked him out for the season. Any player coming back from injury is a risk, but the reward could be high on this one. Sign the boy!
