The New York Yankees reportedly added some pitching depth Friday prior to a tilt with the Oakland Athletics.

Bell opted out of his minor-league deal with the Baltimore Orioles on June 8 after they didn't add him to the MLB roster.

The 36-year-old posted a 4.22 ERA in 10 2/3 innings for the O's Triple-A affiliate and has 168 career saves to his credit.
