Yankees' skipper Joe Girardi announced his decision to go with Phil Hughes as the 5th starter and use Joba Chamberlain in the bullpen, rendering Gaudin's services useless to the pinstripes, and he has been released. Especially after posting an 0-3 record and 8.68 ERA in four spring outings. Should a fringe candidate to make the Yankees' rotation as a 5th starter be a target for GMDM acquisition?

Should GMDM acquire Chad Gaudin as a potential 5th starter or as "organizational depth"?
