Yanks sign outfielder Jon Weber to a minor league dealBy
Via Ken Davidoff, the Yanks have signed outfielder Jon Weber to a minor league contract with an invite to Spring Training. Weber, 31 in January, hit .302-.382-.497 with Triple-A Durham last year, mostly playing rightfield. The poor guy has been stuck in the minors since 1999 (and in Triple-A since 2004), but he’s never spent a day in the big leagues.
Think of him as this year’s John Rodriguez.
