The New York Yankees have signed left-handed pitcher Rich Hill to a minor-league deal and assigned him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, RailRiders media relations announced Thursday.

The Yankees will be Hill's third stop in 2014, as the 34-year-old southpaw has also spent time with the Red Sox and Angels this season.

Hill began the year in the Red Sox organization, going 3-3 with a 3.23 ERA and two saves in 25 appearances at Triple-A Pawtucket and striking out 45 over 39 innings pitched. His contract was purchased by the Angels on July 1, and he made two major-league appearances for the Halos, allowing one run on one hit and three walks (and not recording an out) before being designated for assignment and later released on July 9.

He has spent parts of 10 seasons in the majors, going 24-22 with a 4.75 ERA in 465 2/3 innings over 183 games (70 starts) for the Cubs, Orioles, Red Sox, Indians, and Angels.
