Small Comes Up Big

If you look up "journeyman" in the dictionary, there will be a small thumbnail sketch of Aaron Small. He has a career major league record of 17-10 (and a 5.41 ERA) despite having first pitched in the major leagues eleven years ago. The Yankees are his sixth major league team, though he's had two stints with the Athletics and the Marlins each. He didn't pitch in a single major league game from 1999-2001. He's more closely associated with the letters AAA than the Michelin Man.

And yet.
