NEW YORK (AP) _ The New York Yankees have signed right-handed pitcher Freddy Garcia to a one-year contract.

The 35-year-old Garcia went 12-8 with a 3.62 ERA in 26 appearances in his first season with the Yankees in 2011.

Last season Garcia matched his win total from 2010 with the Chicago White Sox and completed his first back-to-back 12-win seasons since a six-season stretch from 2001-06.

To make room on the 40-man roster, the Yankees designated outfielder Colin Curtis for assignment.
